“Baby I’m Broken” By The Record Company

The Who: The Record Company (Los Angeles, CA) The What: Purveyors of rock n’ roll that nails that sweet spot where beer-chased Delta blues, raw electric soul and a fresh, reverent generation meet to carry on the torch: thy name is The Record Company. Since their 2011 inception as The Record Company in a Los Angeles living room, the trio has […]

“My Love Is A Cannibal” By Joe Marson

The Who: Joe Marson (Los Angeles, CA) The What: Love is a beautiful thing…unless it’s a cannibalistic thing, which is a whole other matter. Ask Joe Marson, the soulful alternative rocker who deep dives into that headspace with his single, “My Love Is A Cannibal” from his upcoming EP Electric Soul Magic Vol. II (out on April 14th). With a sound […]

“Believer” By Imagine Dragons

The Who: Imagine Dragons (Las Vegas, NV) The What: Dolph Lundgren. Who in their right mind would want to go toe-to-toe with that guy? He’s He-Man. The Punisher. And did we not see Rocky IV??? Pour one out for Apollo Creed. From the safety of a metaphorical space comes this video for Imagine Dragons’ current single, “Believer.” Directed by Matt […]

“Sweet Disaster” By Dreamers

The Who: Dreamers (Los Angeles, CA) The What: Wow, Dreamers. Just wow. Since relocating from the east coast to the west, Nick Wold, Nelson and Jacob Wick seem to have made themselves quite comfortable in the land of make believe aka Los Angeles; we’re glad to have them here, and – apparently – they know how to make damned good/hilarious use of […]

“Kanye’s In My Head” By Boy Epic

The Who: Boy Epic (Dallas, TX/ Los Angeles, CA) The What: Perhaps more of a headspace than a physical state of being, Boy Epic has an issue or two to contend with as you can clearly see in his latest video venture/adventure, “Kanye’s In My Head.” But it’s nothing that his cinematic pop noir-ish sound hyped by some clever/creepy/comical/comic book/Nightmare […]

“Hello” By Smoke Season

The Who: Smoke Season (Los Angeles, CA) The What: There’s a lot to dig about Gabrielle Wortman and Jason Rosen who make up the electro-soulful duo Smoke Season, not the least of which are their musical stylistic choices when covering time-tested songs with very distinct identities. Last year they tackled The Talking Heads’ punchy “Psycho Killer” and imbued it with so […]
