The Swami Sound System

January 8, 2013

Swami Sound System

When I moved back to San Diego, I was bummed to hear that my favorite radio segment when off the air a couple of months before I moved back in town. But no need to worry—the Swami Sound System is now available (for free!) on Slacker radio. The segment came to mind after a brief run-in the other day with the Swami himself, John Reis. If you like rarities in the punk, primitive rock, soul, r&b and psych departments, this will probably be up your alley. Now go and let your eardrums melt. You’ve earned it. »»Swami Sound System

Currently listening to: Death Grips

December 1, 2012

Remember that crazy dude that drummed for Wavves a few years back? Well, here’s his latest, semi-new project, Death Grips. After a cancelled tour to finish recording No Love Deep Web, Death Grips is back on the road to play a few dates along the west coast before making their way to Australia. I seriously cannot wait to see this on Wednesday. Those who missed out on a tour earlier this year will be glad to see them play—that is, unless you work for Epic Records. If you live out west, you should check them out. Seriously. Photo by Erez Avissar

Seriously, watch this movie. Searching for Sugar Man (Rodriguez)

September 10, 2012

If you get a chance, watch Searching for Sugarman. It’s a beautiful film. Now showing at select theaters. And… if tickets are still available in your city, go out and see him live.

Hailing from East London, King Krule—whose real name is Archy Marshall—started making music when he was eight after his mom’s boyfriend floated him some records and recording equipment. Sonically, he’s both Chet “JR” White (Girls) and Clams Casino. Released last Fall, his Self Titled EP is a five-song introduction of what we should be expecting from the 17-year old singer/songwriter/producer. For those living in Europe, he’ll be making a few festival appearances including Beacon’s, Bestival and Festival Number 6. North American dates are TBA. Let’s just hope that there’s a west coast leg on his next visit. This is good stuff.
