The Who: Corners
The Why: Because there is a wealth of musical goodness right here in our own Los Angeles-backyard and LA/Echo Park-based Corners (Tracy Bryant, Rick Mabery, Billy Changer and Jeff “Jeffertiti” Ramuno) are one such example. Lo-fi in sound and post-punk in nature, “Love Letters” could cheekily be considered a “love letter” to their obvious fondness for bands like Joy Division. Look how linear and chromatically challenged….and we like it. FYI: Their forthcoming album, Maxed Out On Distractions is due out October 7th on Lolipop Records.
