Aimee Mann weds ‘Bachelor No. 2’ and ‘Magnolia’ albums together for Black Friday Record Store Day reissue

Singer-songwriter Aimee Mann says it was just luck that she was working on songs for the album that became “Bachelor No. 2,” while her friend the writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson was writing the screenplay for “Magnolia.” “We were both starting our creative processes at the same time,” Mann says recently from her home in Los Angeles. “And so we were talking about the themes that we were writing about. “I remember him coming to the studio a couple of times while we were recording,” she says. ...

Stream Ty Segall’s New EP Of Nilsson Covers

The psychedelic rock wizard Ty Segall isn't the type to sit idle. Segall released First Taste, his last solo album, back in August. Since then, Segall has also teamed up with Lightning Bolt drummer Brian Chippendale and formed the duo Wasted Shirt; they released their debut album Fungus II in February. More »

José James Amplifies His Debut with 'No Beginning No End 2'

This is a pop record. James' performance of the Billy Joel "Just the Way You Are" transforms the sappiness of the original into something more passionate. James' version begins with a simple banging of a single note on the piano reminiscent of Harry Nilsson's classic ode "One". It's unclear if James is deliberately referencing to the tune or if the connection is merely serendipitous, but it fits thematically and musically. There are no syrupy/blaring horns here, as in the Joel rendition. This ...

Video premiere: Bebopalula, ‘Coloring Book’

L.A. quartet Bebopalula don’t call themselves a band, but a songwriting collective — four guys with solid bona fides whose music is rooted in, but certainly not constrained by, tradition. Sixties guys at heart, they stretch the boundaries of what history has pigeonholed as power-pop, adding their own paisley flourishes with skill, precision and no small amount of (what some would call impish) enthusiasm. “Coloring Book,” the first single from the quartet’s long-in-the-works debut album, puts the...

Trail Mix – December 2019

I don’t know if it was really bound to happen, but I am sure excited that it did. This month, a former fifth grade student of mine – Shane McLaughlin – and his band appear on Trail Mix. Folks, that is pretty cool. I taught McLaughlin during one of my first years teaching near Charlottesville, Virginia. Life took Shane, and his passion for music, to Harrisonburg, Virginia, and then eventually to the University of Pittsburgh, where he studied finance and eventually ended up pursuing a career...

Too Old to Rock ‘n’ Roll #14: Jump Into the Fire

(Archive) Thursday, January 12, 2017 I’m beginning to feel distinctly that I am more trouble than I’m worth. It’s crunch time for Roscoe’s Basement — we’ve got a gig in less than a month, and our bass player will soon need couple of weeks off — but I am, by any reasonable metric, not pulling my weight. It’s bad enough that I can’t play a note, being as I am still in the early stages of physical therapy after my accident; I find myself having to bum a ride like a damned teenager. My car is still...

Ari Roar preps debut LP for Bella Union (listen to "Calm Down"), playing SXSW

Dallas-area singer-songwriter Caleb Campbell makes music under the name Ari Roar, taking a low key approach to writing and recording. His songs are short and uncluttered, but punchy and memorable. You can hear The Zombies and Harry Nilsson in his melodies, but there's some mid-'90s Northwest in there too (Elliot Smith, Built to Spill). Continue reading… [Author: Bill Pearis]

Album Review: Luther Russell, “Selective Memories: An Anthology”

Before we get to the heart of the matter, here’s a quick history/primer on Mr. Luther Russell, the marvelous Los Angeles guitarist/producer:  he’s been recording since 1991, initially as lead singer/songwriter of the band, The Freewheelers (2 albums), going solo with Lowdown World (1997), Down At Kit’s and Spare Change (2001); these were recorded while living in Portland, Oregon.  While in the Great Northwest, Mr. Russell took to producing independent releases by such acclaimed artists as Richm...

Kyle Craft Is Bringing Gonzo Journalism to Rock and Roll

Singer/songwriter Kyle Craft turned 29 this month, but the music he makes feels right at home among '60s folk and '70s glam. While it may be a cliché to refer to Craft as an "old soul", he's perfectly happy being compared to older, classic acts. "I love Dylan, the Stones, Neil Young," the Louisiana native says from his home in his adopted town of Portland, Oregon. "All those guys are my tried and true. Every time I start to like something else, I always end up saying, 'Well, I li...

ALBUM REVIEW: WRECK LOOSE, “OK, Wreck Loose”

From the first, forceful moment of their debut full-length album, OK, Wreck Loose, Pittsburgh-bred Wreck Loose announce themselves as heirs to the tradition of loud, thoughtful pop rock that dominated AM radio in the 1970’s. Their sound combines a bright piano and analog guitar with lyrics that are both quirky yet introspective, for a sound that remains modern yet consistently steeped in pop music tradition, which is no easy feat. On OK, Wreck Loose, the band marries big rhythms to off-beat lyr...

ALBUM REVIEW: CHRIS PRICE, “Stop Talking”

  This sophomore effort from heralded producer/musician Chris Price is a revelation.  I found it, thanks to the excited recommendations of a friend and I’m so glad I paid attention to his glowing exhortations.  Having spent time recording this album over a four year period, during which he helped produce Emitt Rhodes’ stunning comeback album, Rainbow Ends, and writing songs with (among others) Roger Manning, Mr. Price has crafted a beautiful, low voltage modern classic.  It is, without soundin...

Joel, Thad and Jerry

In The Wall Street Journal this week, I interviewed Joel Grey for my "House Call" column on growing up in Cleveland (go here). His father was a saxophonist and clarinetist who played with local society bands and then moved the family to Los Angeles when he joined Spike Jones's band in the 1940s. Joel's mother had terrible mood swings that often sent him scurrying to hide under his bed.   Also in the WSJ this week , my "Playlist" interview with John O'Hurley, who played J. Peterman on Sein...

Lena Horne and Gabor Szabo

There are plenty of jazz albums in the rock era that, on paper, never should have worked but did and still do, exceptionally well. Joe Pass's The Stones Jazz (1966) is one. Paul Desmond's Bridge Over Troubled Water (1970) is another. Add Lena & Gabor (1970) to the list. When the album by vocalist Lena Horne backed by guitarist Gábor Szabó (above) was released in 1970, it came out on Skye Records, a label formed in 1968 by Szabó, vibraphonist Cal Tjader, arranger Gary McFarland and executive No...

Wilco brings a generous touch of Schmilco to the Theatre at Ace

[See image gallery at buzzbands.la] Jeff Tweedy and his Wilco cohorts stood Tuesday at the Theatre at the Ace Hotel on a stage looking like a detailed pop-up illustration of a canopy of trees in a kids book, extra-magical for being in this stunningly ornate Deco-era room, the musicians lost in — or escaping to — the woods. Well, childhood did figure prominently in the generous, 27-song set the band played in this first of three Ace nights, particularly the opening sequence of the three songs ...
