HEALTH shares new video for "L.A. Looks"

Noise punk group HEALTH sure have come a long way since we first wrote about them during their start, and it's great to still see them at their idiosyncratic best. Their latest video off of last year's Death Magic, "L.A. Looks", is a stylistically retro take on public access television that equally exposes and pokes fun at the weirder side of Los Angeles. Consider it as an apt travel guide for for those who've yet to visit our lovely city. Proceed with caution.


Gavin Turek releases disco-tinged new single "Good Look For You"

Singer/songwriter Gavin Turek provides a stellar blend of rhythm and soul on "Good Luck For You", a disco-tinged groover for the modern era that puts her on the spotlight after a series of fruitful collaborations with artists such as Mayor Hawthorne and TOKiMONSTA. It's faultlessly layered soul-funk that keeps its classical influences intact, with fuzzy synth lines and strapping piano keys prancing about as Turek lends her wholesome vocal delivery.

"Good Luck For You" will be featured on her debut EP of the same name, which is not coming out until February 17 of next year. Her sole date for the remainder of the year will be at ShowGlobe Music Festival on 12/29. A slew of new tour dates are due to show up sometime soon, so keep your eyes peeled for any further announcements.

Blonde Summer releases new single "Beer on Ice"

Let the fuzz take you in on "Beer on Ice", the latest single by Blonde Summer. The band's brainchild, Chris Pope, keeps things single by offering a heavy riff with a basic drum pattern that alludes to mid-nineties power pop. But behind the song's killer guitar part there's Pope himself, an affable character who writes about the everyday with an economy of language that's both relatable and absurd.

"Beer on Ice" is out now via Dangerbird.




Common Souls release intimate new single "Roots//Habit"

Common Souls, a self proclaimed ESM (electronic sad music) duo, just released their newest single off of their latest EP, Pyramids. The single, “Roots//Habit”, is a love song so organic and raw you’d swear it was written just for you (and for one of you out there, it probably is). The pure talent Ryan Yoo and Nick Velez have is equivalent to an entire studio production, with sound producers, mixers, band members, etc. But they do it alone and the amount of soul and vibrant energy the two produce is astonishing. Pyramids creates a dynamic, electronic, spellbinding musical experience that captures the emotion in music most artists struggle to find. Common Souls might just be the secret love child of The Weeknd and Frank Ocean, and I am definitely okay with that. - Kayla Hay


Blond Ambition's new video for "Shasta" + debut album coming soon

LA’s Blond Ambition, the solo project of Brian Harding from Ex Cops, is taking us back to the warm summer sun with his new video for “Shasta”. Brian’s nonchalant vocals and funky psychedelic groove perfectly matches the clips of happy beach goers soaking in the sun, skaters trying out slick moves, and surfers getting ready to take on the waves, all with a neat vintage film aesthetic. Look out for Blond Ambition’s debut album in spring 2017. - Ashley Muniz
