Post Malone Was Almost On The New Fleet Foxes Album

Post Malone’s love of Fleet Foxes is well-documented. He once tweeted “if you don’t like flee foxes then fuck you.” Last year, he sang along to “The Shrine/An Argument” while smoking a cigarette; “This made my day ha,” Robin Pecknold wrote on his Instagram story in response. Well, it seems that that moment was just one small piece of a beautiful friendship.

All Things Blue – “Lully”

All Things Blue is the LA-based project of India Coombs (aka Blue) and Jon Joseph. Their debut album Get Bit is dropping in December, and the rollout continues today with a stunning new single called “Lully,” a dreamy trip-hop track with traces of Radiohead’s “Pyramid Song.” In a pinched soprano whisper, Coombs repeats the refrain, “It doesn’t matter anymore,” over a loose, jazzy lope. It’s rad, and as Coombs explains, it’s about unsustainable farming: “My brother sent me an article about farm...

Covid Fan Tutti: Opera In Exotic Places

LA’s Pacific Opera Project’s unconventional, often playful productions have included a bilingual “Madama Butterfly” performed in the Aratani Theatre in L.A.’s Little Tokyo; a “Magic Flute” that took its cue from 1990s video games; and at the outdoor Ford Theatres, a version of Mozart’s “Abduction From the Seraglio” staged as an episode of “Star Trek.” Still, the company has done nothing quite like what it is attempting in the parking lot of Camarillo United Methodist Church in Ventura County, a...

Drakeo The Ruler – “Fights Don’t Matter”

Five days ago, Drakeo The Ruler, overlord of the LA rap underground, got out of jail. Drakeo helped create a strain of jumpy, restless, casually wordy street-rap that’s essentially become the sound of California, but he hasn’t been around to see it. For the better part of two years, Drakeo has been in jail, awaiting trail. He was acquitted on murder charges last year, but then he was arrested again and held without bail on charges of shooting and conspiracy, stemming from the same incident. Last...

Toso – “Black Hearts” (Mixtape Review)

Toso is a Rhode Island native, who is now in Los Angeles and has been making a name for himself in the City of Angels for about 4 years. I recently had the chance to listen to his latest mixtape, “Black Hearts” and two words come to mind; beats and flow. The project is his 7th mixtape, his R-rated take on some well known tracks. “Black Hearts” is 11 tracks long, which is cool because most new artists opt for a shorter EP kind of project, but Toso went relatively old school with the length of th...

How Rusty Eye made COVID-safe music videos at LA’s legendary Jumbo’s Clown Room

When the pandemic hit back in March, many musical artists pivoted to some sort of livestreaming outlet to perform, chat or release fresh content. Los Angeles-based heavy metal trio Rusty Eye hasn’t gotten in the livestreaming game yet, but the band has been ferociously promoting its new album, “Dissecting Shadows,” which dropped on Oct. 23. It’s a fun and horror-filled record that plays out like a script from a slasher film with cuts like “Mrs. Baylock,” which pays homage to the character from t...
