  • L.A. Unheard: Young Hunting [Updated]

     
    Welcome to L.A. Unheard, a weekly series on the best local musicians yet to reach your ears. Come back every Wednesday for a new favorite band. The band: Young Hunting, an Echo Park quintet that's already earning blog love from the likes of I Guess I'm...
  • James Franco brings 'Howl' to life, aurally

     
    This weekend, "Howl" opens in New York and San Francisco. It's the story of Allen Ginsberg, his iconic beat poem and the legal battle that followed its publication. The movie, written and directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, opens......
  • The Parson Red Heads say goodbye to L.A. with a pair of shows starting tonight

     
    Affability is one of the most underrated qualities in music. While critics and those similarly inclined often champion novelty and affected eccentricities, sheer likability often trumps all (or at least it should). And in the Parson Red Heads'...
  • MP3: Warpaint - 'Undertow'

     
    The music of L.A. quartet Warpaint is a little fractured, a little unfocused. "Undertow," the first single from the band's ridiculously anticipated debut album, "The Fool," echoes P.J. Harvey and Kate Bush, its blurry harmonies intersecting with ferocious...
  • L.A. Unheard: The Smiles

     
    The band: The Smiles, a so-called "beach rock" quartet of still-in-school USC students ("We'll see how long that lasts us," co-songwriter Will Sturgeon said) who banded together after class last year -- and not to be confused with the U.K. act The Smiles,...
  • Star Trek: A talk with rising underground rapper Trek Life

     
    Trek Life is so L.A. He bleeds purple and gold, bumps Battlecat and name-drops the oft-forgotten Funkdoobiest in interviews. That’s as L.A. as you can get for someone whose formative years were split between the city itself and West Covina.......
  • Ambient beatmaker yuk plays Low End Theory, premieres exclusive MP3

     
    Little is known about yuk. He's one of the linchpins of the Dublab- and Low End Theory-affiliated My Hollow Drum collective. His Myspace page is private and biographical information is scarce. All that is commonly known is that he is......
  • Cover story: Cassette cachet: The tapes are back in town

     
    When the vinyl LP began its modest but highly publicized commercial comeback a few years ago, the format felt easy to love again. With sprawling artwork, pristine sound quality and the adoring ritual of flipping album sides, its return united young...
  • Sunset Junction: Pollyn's electro-pop is blossoming with adventurousness; Nosaj Thing remix premiere

     
    Pollyn is a three-piece, except when the act is an eight-piece. The lineup swells during live performances, which are difficult to describe because they create a sort of coherent chaos that's almost pointless to pick apart. Genevieve Artadi wails wraith-...
  • Pepper Rabbit readying 'Beauregard,' wrapping up sophomore album

     
    Most independent bands head to the South by Southwest music festival hoping to get noticed -- a photo in a magazine, perhaps, or even just a "Killing it!" Twitter message from a buzz-driving blogger. Not Pepper Rabbit. "Originally, we were only playing...
  • 'The Scenesters Run LA': a week of music and film starting Friday

     
    A tedious joke about a tired topic claims that the "only good hipster is a dead hipster." If that's the case, then the corollary implies that "The Scenesters Run LA" will be a good time. After all, the week of......
