The daughter of legendary songwriters Carole King and Gerry Goffin, Louise Goffin spent her childhood and adolescence in Laurel Canyon, the epicenter of the L.A. music scene in the late ’60s and ’70s.

Andrew McMahon talks cooking, entertaining and being socially responsible in a global pandemic

When 2020 began, Orange County-based singer-songwriter Andrew McMahon had a plan. He had new music he’d written since his The Pen and the Piano Tour in 2017-2018 and he’d teamed up with Los Angeles rock band Awolnation for a full-fledged North American Tour, which was originally scheduled to hit home at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on June 19.

Ears Wide Open: Launder

Launder is the post-punk/shoegaze project of singer-guitarist John Cudlip, a Dana Point native who, after moving to Los Angeles, was introduced to Jackson Phillips of Day Wave. Not long after, the pair began work on Launder’s debut EP, “Pink Cloud,” out March 9. Working out of Phillips’ home studio in Echo Park, the EP took shape with the help of French singer-songwriter Soko, who lends her vocals to four of the five tracks, and guitarist Zachary Cole Smith of DIIV, who takes the lead on two.

Arroyo Seco Weekend, Day 1: Tom Petty (and human traffic) jams

[See image gallery at] There was some literal truth in one of the dozens of sing-alongs during Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers’ set Saturday night at Arroyo Seco Weekend: “Everybody has to fight to be free.” If by “fight,” the 66-year-old rocker meant 1) trip over somebody’s lawn chair, 2) become entangled in somebody’s blanket, or 3) accidentally kick a baby stroller, then, yes, enjoying the main-stage performance at the first-year festival was a monumental battle.

Warne Marsh: Dahoud

In the fall of 1953, while on tour in North Africa with Lionel Hampton, trumpeter Clifford Brown and the band stopped in Algeria. There, it is assumed the essence of his composition Daahoud came together. It's unclear who Daahoud was, Daahoud being Arabic for David. When Brown returned to the States and began to record as a leader, starting with the Pacific Jazz label in July 1954, his new composition Daahoud was part of the session with Stu Williamson (v-tb) Zoot Sims (ts) Bob Gordon (bar) Rus...

Video: Band of Horses, ‘Casual Party’

Band of Horses — the 12-year-old indie-rock outfit helmed by bearded, flannel-wearing Ben Bridwell — seem least likely to end up at a party inhabited by alien weirdos, but that’s where the band is all tied up, playing percussion on a stack of cold cuts, in the video for their new single “Casual Party.” The song is from the band’s fifth album and first in four years, “Why Are You Ok” (out June 10). The video is the work of Ben Fee, whose previous “party” concept pieces include the down-home shind...
