Stream: Gus Seyffert, ‘Hold On’

Gus Seyffert has spent years (and years) shepherding other artists’ work, either as a side man (Roger Waters, Beck, Norah Jones, the Black Keys, Sia) or as a producer (Michael Kiwanuka, Jenny Lewis, Dr. Dog, Bedouine, James Supercave). The native Midwesterner, who moved to L.A. as a teenager to study jazz, has always placed his solo work on the back burner. “For the past decade or so I’ve been trying to do my own thing, make my own records,” he says. “But when you get offers from folks like the ...

32 Days of Halloween XII, Day 8: Bride of the Monster!

We reach all the way back to 1926 for our #TrackoftheDay. It’s Red Nichols and His Five Pennies and the “Boneyard Shuffle.” The argument could be made that, were it not for the title, this would have no tie to Halloween at all. But I say you need some festive tunes in the boneyard, so it still fits. Then we go to 1979 for an animated Halloween special: it’s The Flintstones Meet Rockula and Frankenstone, with John Stephenson as Rockula (he also provided the voice of Mr. Slate, among othe...

Black Judge Tries to Explain Why She Hugged the White Cop That Killed Botham Jean & Gave Her a Bible

The black judge who seemingly broke courthouse norms to hug a convicted white cop for killing a black man in his own home is attempting to justify her actions. Judge Tammy Kemp gave her first interview since sentencing former Dallas officer Amber Guyger to 10 years in prison for shooting and killing Botham Jean. Kemp says it was her faith and desire to see Guyger live a purposeful life that led her to hug and gift Guyger her own Bible following the trial. “Following my own convictions, I could n...

Video: Automatic, ‘Strange Conversations’

“Signal,” the debut album from L.A. synth-pop trio Automatic, is full of “Stranger Conversations” — the song by that name is but one of them — all of them deadpanned as if to serve as an antidote to all the whooping, hollering and cooing in modern music. The album, which was released on Stones Throw Records on Sept. 27, finds Izzy Glaudini (synths), Lola Dompé (drums) and Halle Saxon (bass) marching to the Motorik beats of forebears such as NEU! and Suicide. It’s icy cool, strangely hypnotic and...

Since Odessa released her self-titled album in 2015, she found herself under some dark clouds. But the singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has weathered the storm. With that album (and a memorable spring 2015 residency at the Bootleg), Odessa — full name: Odessa Jorgensen — burst out of the shadows of being a side player (Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Rayland Baxter, Old Crow Medicine Show, Abigail Washburn, Gill Landry). But her record deal soured, her bank account dwindled and, w...
