LAist Essential Listening
Sample these tracks and let us know what's in your iPod playlist this week.
|The Shore |
Hard Road [download | watch video]
Formed in Silverlake during 2002, The Shore's hard work paid off when they were signed to the Maverick label. Listen to "Hard Road" from their self-titled debut. If you like what you hear, you can see them at Spaceland on November 16.
|Judd and Maggie |
Perfectly [free stream | download]
This Maryland-based brother and sister duo cook up some spectacular ear candy on Subjects. Sample a few free clips on their website. Then listen to Judd & Maggie live at Spaceland on November 15.
These OC natives have been touring cross-country—from Tulsa to Minneapolis to Tucson. Their latest CD (which has hints of Tom Petty) reflects that vagabond experience. Limbeck perform at the echo on November 17.
|David Ryan Harris |
For You [free stream | buy]
This tremendously talented Atlanta musician has a voice that is reminiscent of Stevie Wonder. Take a listen to any of the tracks on Harris' latest release and you'll be a fan. Harris performs November 16 & 30 at Hotel Cafe.
|Zack Hexum |
Met A Girl Like You [free stream | buy]
You've probably heard Hexum on Fox's OC or perhaps KROQ. His music is polished and radio-friendly, but remains honest enough to keep it believable. You can catch Hexum at Hotel Cafe on November 18.
