Connecting The Dots With MisterWives

If you are Mandy Lee (vox), Etienne Bowler (drums), William Hehir (bass), Marc Campbell (guitar), Jesse Blum (keys, trumpet, accordion) and Mike Murphy (saxophone) aka MisterWives, how do you follow up your wildly successful 2015 debut album, Our Own House?

Polarcode

Early in the afternoon at a small café in West Hollywood, CA is when and where I meet Eric Stang and Mario Cerutti of the Los Angeles duo, Polarcode, and Eric is putting the final killing strokes on his salad. The kind of salad that he ordered is irrelevant (arugula, if you really must know), what’s important is the fact […]

Goodbye June

“I’m Landon Milbourn. Lead vocalist, star extraordinaire.” “This is Tyler. Tyler Baker. The real star vocal. I play guitar.” “Brandon Qualkenbush. Guitar.

I think after almost thirty years in the business, that’s probably the best news anyone can hear! [laughs] “You got picked up!” [laughs] HV: Now Dean Fogg has been stern yet […]

Into The Light With Missio

On an early evening in March, David Butler and Matthew Brue were prepping for a private, intimate show in the Fairfax Village area of Los Angeles. The performance space was as warm as the day (climate change, kids) but one assumes that a band based in Austin, TX would be used to such things. At the end of the evening, […]
