Socadia | "Land of Peasants"

Erotic electo-rock Socadia play Spaceland the 23rd and El Cid -- no flamenco dancers! -- on the 29th, all in support for their new LP [trees for the forest] , due February.


It isn't lonely at Raymond Richards' Idaho Falls

The Idaho Falls, collaborative-laden project of producer/engineer/songwriter Raymond Richard, is a breathing all-star act featuring local notables.  His upcoming LP The Spark tracks cameos from Angela Correa and Rob Poynter from Correatown, Brian Whelan from Broken West, Alex Silverman from Alex & Sam, Wendy Wang from The Sweet Hurt and others including longtime Idaho Falls guitarist Kevin Feyen and drummer Roger Brogan. For those seeking that classic Topanga Canyon sound, Richard isn't too far -- musical communities tend to have that effect.

Coachella speculation frenzy ends; include appearances by Deli LA favs

We never wanted to partake in the Coachella line-up guessing game because, well, we might as well be writing fan fiction, so we patiently waited for this glorious graphic to surface this morning. Unless you've been living under a proverbial digital rock, here it is. Congrats to Deli LA favorites Mayer Hawthorne and Local Natives for scoring a spot on one of the most diverse bills the festival has seen in recent memory. We'll be bringing you a complete round-up of LA artists slated for Indio in days to come, just in case the itch for a local preview hits you.
