Hear Perfume Genius Sing A Tender Cover Of Leonard Cohen’s “Bird On The Wire”

Leonard Cohen's "Bird On The Wire" is one of those songs that will never go away, that people will never tire of covering.

Popular With Us 2019: Buzz Bands LA’s Albums of the Year

The mere existence of 100 Gecs excepted, 2019 was a fantastic year for music, worldwide and locally. Following is “Popular With Us 2019: Buzz Bands LA’s Albums of the Year,” an unwieldy list of L.A. artists who caught our ears and wouldn’t let go.
