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. ...

No Doubt talks ‘Tragic Kingdom’ at 25: The tears, tours and triumphs behind the classic album

On Oct. 10, 1995, No Doubt’s third album, “Tragic Kingdom,” was released. The Anaheim-based band — comprised of vocalist Gwen Stefani, guitarist Tom Dumont, drummer Adrian Young, bassist Tony Kanal, trombonist Gabrial McNair and trumpeter Stephen Bradley — feared that the record would never see the light of day. The label had gone through some changes and they’d been shuffled in and out of nearly a dozen Los Angeles area recording studios during the album-making process. They’d also received les...

How Tom Petty’s death inspired the Flaming Lips’ new ‘American Head’ album

For the Flaming Lips, a feeling is always more important than a plan, singer Wayne Coyne says. “We know that if we don’t go with the thing that we’re feeling then we don’t deserve to be the Flaming Lips,” he says near the end of a recent conversation about “American Head,” the band’s 21st studio album. “That’s the thing that our audience has encouraged us to do,” Coyne says of the idiosyncratic path the Flaming Lips have forged over almost four decades of music. “It’s like, ‘Hey, man, if you fin...

50 years on, the wild story of ‘Creem: America’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll Magazine’ gets told

Rock journalist Jaan Uhelszki laughs as she describes a friend’s skepticism about life and work at Creem magazine during its glory days in the ’70s. “He keeps telling me, ‘All you Creem people romanticize it, you always make it seem like it was much better than it was,’” Uhelszki says. “I say, ‘No, it really was that good.’” With the release of the new documentary “Creem: America’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll Magazine” on Friday, Aug. 7, Uhelszki — who co-wrote the film with director Scott Crawford and c...

Why Iration’s new album, ‘Coastin” is just right for staying home during the coronavirus

As the coronavirus pandemic shut down live concert events and people began quarantining at home, the Santa Barbara-based reggae-rock band Iration contemplated whether or not to release its new music. The bulk of its seventh studio album, “Coastin’,” which was recorded at EastWest Studios in Los Angeles, was in the can by mid-spring. After a few weeks of serious deliberation, the band decided to go ahead with its July 10 release. “The first songs we put out were ‘Coastin” and ‘Right Here Right No...

“American Idol” revealed the results of its viewer votes on Sunday as the Top 20 was cut to just 11 singers – including three from Southern California.

Long Beach band Wargirl’s European tour cut short amid worsening pandemic

Months ago, up-and-coming Long Beach band Wargirl mapped out a 14-performance tour that included stops in England, France, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. As it turned out, however, the eclectic indie band flew unwittingly into the heart of a pandemic. As the band’s shifting itinerary crisscrossed Europe this month, the novel coronavirus outbreak worsened with each passing day.

Want vintage audio for your classic vinyl? Here’s what you need to know

Eight years ago, Mikey Weiss had wanted to build a display of vintage stereos at his Brooklyn store – “a museum piece,” he calls it – to show people what stereos looked like in the 1970s. His customers, however, wanted to buy those artifacts. Since then, Weiss has since sold oodles of old school gear, and last September he celebrated the grand opening of the West Coast Branch of Mikey’s Hook Up in Silver Lake. Amidst the stock of 21st-century gizmos, there was, of course, a smattering of vintage...
