Guest DJ | ROMA DASH

Last week, Roma Dash was found crammed in the wheel well of a Logan-LAX commercial plane. Luckily, we were there, and made a citizens' arrest on the spot; she never did make it to Coachella, despite her incessant chanting of Lana Del Rey's 'West Coast,' as we hauled her away.

Speedy Ortiz Pick Up Momentum With ‘Real Hair’ EP

While Real Hair is comfortably familiar, it's no carbon-copy of what their debut full-length Major Arcana brought us last June. It embraces some different songwriting qualities that provide a distinction from what has come before, and their musical progression doesn't come at the cost of sacrificing what has made Speedy Ortiz so appealing to date: loud, intricate 90s-fuzz guitars and Sadie Dupuis' sharp lyrics and vocals.

“Get Lost” with L.A. Witch

The amount of psych/garage rock bands that currently inhabit Los Angeles, and Southern California in general, is vast. Hordes of bands playing all-too-familiar, reverb-drenched tunes can be heard at a number of clubs and venues throughout the city on any given day, which makes attracting the ears of jaded listeners quite a tough feat.

Mirror Days

Low, rumbling vocals and gloom-shrouded tracks give Mirror Days an unusually fluid and melodic sound on new album.
