A friend of mine sent me over this track and I have to admit, I’m really digging it. Her name is Laura Jean Anderson and she’s got an amazing voice, great music and she is cute as hell. Expect big thing from her in 2016 and remember where you heard her first.
I am a new fan of this emerging LA based band DreamVacation. Their stunning new self-titled EP sweeps you away with a brooding melodic power and hard-edged yet atmospheric guitars behind lead singer Ray Silva’s emotional vocals. Check out the debut single “Window Room” below.
r e l ’s music radiates emotion, embodying what she calls “evoca-pop”– music that makes you think and feel– and what has been labeled by music-tastemakers and fans as dream pop/alternative r&b.
In just over a year, REL has garnered both critical acclaim and over 100,000 soundcloud listens. Watch her video covering the Glass Animals “Gooey”.
Heard this new song today by The Slightlys and can’t get it out of my head. “Desperate Measures” is a timeless indie rock anthem reminiscent of Foster the People and the Killers. This emerging LA four-piece played the Warp Tour recently and are currently in the studio recording debut album. Take a listen below.
Lately I have been enjoying the new single from Ted Z and the Wranglers. The four piece, deliver outlaw americana-charged rock. Ted’s catchy story-songs are fully-realized tales of love, regret, getting older, and getting in trouble. I dig the Americana tunes, featuring quick picking and bluesy slide guitar over beats and swinging shuffles. In the span of a few years, Ted Z and the Wranglers have become one of Southern California’s most compelling and sought after Americana roots musical collectives. Take a listen.
Put aside 12 hours and find a comfortable place to sit, because these 12 albums will just suck you in and not let you go. No fillers, just song after song of musical bliss. Rest that skip button finger and enjoy the ride!

This one has been on repeat, Forebear’s new single "People’s Champ" a 90s grunge tune with dazed guitars, lush strings and brutally honest lyrics. The four-piece has been a staple at many Los Angeles festivals and are definitely a band to watch. Listen to the new track here.
Check out the amazing new video from producer/writer/singer Josh Stevens whose works are Grammy Award Winning. Josh Stevens has worked with the likes of Warren G, Snoop Dogg, The Game, LMFAO, Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull, Steve Aoki, Calvin Harris, Nicki Minaj and Wiz Khalifa to name a few and his new song is a pop/indie-rock/dance funk fusion!
