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

The 30 Best New Musical Artists of 2018

Amnesia Scanner Amnesia Scanner is the experimental electronic duo of Ville Haimala and Martti Kalliala. Created in late 2013, the group is not exactly new, but they have remained somewhat unrecognizable and wholly inaccessible until this year. As they used to refuse interviews and released several unannounced, unexplained EP's and mixtapes, Amnesia Scanner floated around as illegible codes for devoted listeners to decipher. Every track title was prefaced by "AS", and each music video reg...

Desert Daze 2018: What you need to know about the first two days of the festival

Desert Daze packed plenty of drama in its first two days at the Lake Perris State Recreation Area. On Friday night, severe thunderstorms rolled through, prompting organizers to pull the plug on the whole night early in Tame Impala’s set. A day later, it was like the rain had washed away the bad vibes of the night before (and the opening day parking woes) with hours of psychedelic rock at the lakeside park. But Friday wasn’t all bad. Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker brought his new project Jarv Is, which inc...
