Leave it to Mount Elsewhere to rise to the challenge of effectively encompassing all things indie rock. At once sounding Americana and folk-funky and the next experimental bluesy, they’ve developed a musical style that blends acoustic tradition with modern electronic experimentation. Throw in the vocals and it becomes weighty travelling music for sure.

 

This trio comes to us from Michigan and it definitely shows: maudlin lyricism on top of all-out jamming is their specialty. Get their debut album Heart and Soul.

Crystal Fighters | Cave Rave | Tickets for LA 6/4

Folktronica phenoms Crystal Fighters’ follow up to Star of Love made its way to the masses last week. Since their first album came out in 2010, there had been little word of new material until the latter end of 2012, when they released their collaboration with Feed Me titled ‘Love is All I Got’. The sextet addressed their recess as a means of finding the roots of their sound amidst the drudgery of popular music. We’ll give that to them.

Cave Rave comes to us as a call to ‘the freedom of utopic spaces’. Thematically, the album progresses like an exotic fete filled with love, laughter, and smiles – the best of life, music, and people. Lively beats mixed in with catchy guitar riffs make for perfect celebration music no matter your aural preferences. Album opener ‘Wave’ is a triumphant cry to the universe and togetherness; it brings to mind Arcade Fire. The rising cheer continues until ‘Bridge of Bones’ where the tempo calms for a state of reflection – call this the sunset. ‘Are We One’ culminates as the most electro infused track, which fits perfectly with the sentiments that we are all one energy. It is nigh upon bizarre to consider frowning or resisting movement while listening to Cave Rave.

LA Residents, don’t miss their June 4th show at the El Rey Theatre. They play with CAD approved Australians: ALPINE. Buy your tickets here and enjoy a slice of utopia with us!

One-man show Ryan McMahon is yet another folk-pop poncho-wearing hippie with a Jesus beard singing about sexual liberation and god-knows-what. Since 2009, he’s toured with electronic acts such as Justice, Bloody Beetroots, Yelle and Acid Girls, which is odd considering he’s folk-rock eccentric. I think he’s pretty weird, but that could be cause I’m not on the same drugs as him. His catchy songs are worth knowing though. I personally will keep my eyes peeled for this guy in the future.

Happy Sunday everyone! Ok so sorry I haven’t had a chance to post anything up here in the past few weeks. Hopefully this post will make up for it. I’m going to start putting together a playlist weekly of a handful of different genres from bands I really like. I’m going to keep it to around 20 songs each time so you can put it on a CD to enjoy on your summer drives. If you don’t know already, YOLO is short hand for You Only Live Once. If i could live my life by any four letters, it’d be these. Life isn’t too short, but too dear to be confined to any one genre of music, or to any one way of life for that matter. There is some good in every genre, even country. Open your minds and your ears and give it a shot. You never know..
