“Legend” By Holy Wars

  THE WHO: Holy Wars (Los Angeles, CA) THE WHAT: Here within the local Los Angeles music scene we are pretty familiar with the being of Holy Wars and its inception: after the unimaginable loss of both of her parents in 2015 a wealth of pain, anger, loss and confusion became frontwoman Kat Leon’s cathartic and artistic fuel. And in and […]

“True Love” By Ariana And The Rose

THE WHO: Ariana and the Rose (Brooklyn, NY) THE WHAT: Love is a thing – a real and good thing – which should be celebrated loudly every day and twice on Sundays which is why we cannot help but crush on chanteuse Ariana and the Rose and her bright and vibrant capture of it in her latest video, “True Love.” Considering […]

“Little Toes” By CAPYAC and Annabelle Maginnis

THE WHO: CAPYAC and Annabelle Maginnis (Los Angeles, CA) THE WHAT: Considering the oceanic depth of artists, musicians, and overall creatives occupying space in Los Angeles, CA, collaboration is truly the gift that keeps on giving. Case in point, the deliciously gentle neo-soul, and jazz-flavored confection, “Little Toes,” courtesy of the combined forces of electronic dance masters Delwin Campbell and Eric Peana […]

Her new video, “Too Late,” directed by Aisha Tyler (yes, that […]

“Slow Motion” By flor

THE WHO: flor (Los Angeles, CA) THE WHAT: What do we like about flor? Yes, we like the fact that the Oregon-native band comprised of Zach Grace (vox/guitar), Dylan Bauld (bass), McKinley Kitts (guitar), and Kyle Hill (drums) transplanted themselves here to Los Angeles, but we’re particularly fond of the deliciously synthy and groove-laden alt-pop that they traffic in. We […]

“I Wonder” By Bay Ledges

THE WHO: Bay Ledges (Los Angeles, CA) THE WHAT: Even if you are the subject of a breakup song, it might be pretty damned hard to grudge against that breakup song when it shimmers with warm nostalgia and packs a gentle heart punch the way that “I Wonder” by the LA-based indie pop outfit Bay Ledges does. “It’s about wanting […]

“Sepulveda Basin” By Liily

THE WHO: Liily (Los Angeles, CA) THE WHAT: Due to Lilly’s 2018 releases, “Sold” and “Toro,” showing them to be an alt-rock band that punches with impressive authority, we got the feeling that youth may not be entirely wasted on the young even if the video for their latest single, “Sepulveda Basin,” reeks of lo-fi, time-killing, dudely aimlessness. “This video is […]
