  • In case you haven't heard, Swedish band The Shout Out Louds are playing at The Wiltern tonight and tomorrow. They're not headlining. They're not even sharing the bill. They're opening for Secret Machines and Kings Of Leon.So this is us telling you to get there early. If you don't know The Shout Out Louds yet, you will soon. Their album of catchy and pulse-quickening music, Howl Howl Gaff Gaff, is out at better music...

  • Okay, this is some serious heat. And yes, we know, we know, it's not so much the heat, it's the humidity. But we think the heat has something to do with our sticky discomfort during that short scurry from one air conditioner to another. Our advice? Wear as little as possible. And before you get excited, we're only snagging your attention so we can talk about that staple of summer wear, the t-shirt. More...

  • The corner of Gardner and Sunset is a special corner. Actually, it looks pretty ordinary. But if you've seen a certain Spike Jonze video collection, you know the corner very well. This is where Jonze and Director of Photography Scott Henriksen shot the video for the song, "California" by the band Wax several years ago. The video is quick and simple. A man runs down a street and around a corner, head down, in...

  • Anyone remember Catherine Wheel? Rob Dickinson and the boys were one of our favorite acts of the Nineties. They somehow managed to balance a hard, heavy sound with an scintillating and arty sensibility. Their 1997 album "Adam & Eve" came off like a terrific blend of Pink Floyd and Radiohead, achieving a delicate sound that they'd hinted at but never quite delivered in their earlier efforts. They've been quiet since then, but we're excited...

  • Continuing the pursuit of cool musical appearances this summer, we swing our warm lights around to settle on Maria Taylor. She's one half of Azure Ray, whose warm and synth-laced "Burn and Shiver" was one of the nicest discs to come out of 2002. Last month, Taylor released her first solo effort, titled "11:11" (make a wish!) The collection of ten tunes is forty minutes of pulsing, melancholy bliss, above which drifts Taylor's voice,...
