Beyond The Music: Mark Lennon – “California Calling”

Beyond The Music: Mark Lennon – “California Calling”

North Carolina native (and current L.A. resident) Mark Lennon is the unassuming, easygoing guy next door. That’s what I enjoyed about his debut EP, Down the Mountain (2009, Vagabonds Tune) — it was like sitting on a wide and comfortable front porch, drinking ice cold beer and listening to a friend play some solid, honest […]

Video of the Week: Wavves – “King of the Beach”

Video of the Week: Wavves – “King of the Beach”

This simply represents everything we loved about those unimaginable zero summers at the beach acting like obnoxious fools while under the influence and playing our Young Fresh Fellows, Cramps, Suicidal Tendencies, Jam and Dead Milkmen songs too loud. Wavves are just off a tour with Best Coast and tomorrow head to Japan and Australia. Today […]

Video of the Week Double Shot: Little Tybee — “History” (Paper Garden)

We know, we know, TWO “Video of the Week” features in the same week? And from the same band? Yes, it’s a first for us and we never thought we’d do this, but Little Tybee is casting quite a spell on us with their progressive folk/classical/latin grooviness. We think you’ll be mesmerized too, once you […]

Our ears perked up when we heard Charlene Kaye singing “Mad Tom of Bedlam,” from her 2010 EP Charlene Kaye & The Brilliant Eyes. And then we saw the video. Yowza! Check out this jazzy, swingin’, rockin’ group for yourself, fronted by the effervescent, golden-throated multi-instrumentalist Kaye. So, Who Is CHARLENE KAYE? Here’s an excerpt […]

Video Premier: “Seven Sisters” by Bastard Lovechild of Rock ‘n’ Roll

Florida band Bastard Lovechild of Rock ‘n’ Roll (BLORR) made our Best of 2010 list with their debut EP, Bim Bom. Honestly, it’d been a long time since we’d heard anything that rocked this hard and had so much soul and literary depth — and some damn fine bossa nova breaks, too! So, imagine our […]
