Seasons premiere new video for 'Light, Lost'

LA band Seasons

If your idea of a good music video includes a beautiful girl running away from sandman-esque stalkers set to the flowing vibes of Season's song 'Light, Lost', well then this video is for you. If you didn't see the band premiere the video earlier this week after their set at Spaceland then you can certainly watch it here. The video is directed by Christopher J. Ewing and is nothing less than delightful.


MiM0SA puts a spell on us all

MiM0SA by Angela Dawn

22-year-old producer phenom, MiM0SA, will be dropping his glitched up, dubstepped, mini-LP Silver Lining on October 4th on Multi Music Records. A month is too long to wait, so we're sharing his blistering remix of Nina Simone's classic 'I Put a Spell on You' as a free download. Classic, groovy, and a bit gritty, it'll conjure up inflences like trip-hop masters Massive Attack.

If you like other LA producers like Rusko or Baths (A Deli LA personal favorite) then you'll fall right in line with MiM0SA. He's been making waves at festivals like Cochella and Burning Man, and he's embarking on a US tour that will bring him to the Music Box/Henry Fonda on Sept. 23rd.


The Song Shop: An Interview with Say Anything's Max Bemis

Max Bemis and Say Anything

If all of our shoulder devils that urge excess and temptation left our consciences to prevail and formed an indie rock band, Say Anything would be it.  With content ranging from sex, love, religion, drugs and all that’s stemmed in controversy, their music stands as an eccentric journey through the life of a bipolar, dirty-minded rock star that is bold enough to speak his mind.  Through the use of metaphors and one-liners packed with double meanings, front man Max Bemis always manages to conjure a bizarre twist on almost anything he blurts out.

It is no surprise that the filterless front man who penned lyrics such as, “When I was spat onto the earth in a stream of guts, by Mother Nature, that green-eyed slut”, would conjure up so much attention from critics and fans dumbfounded with intrigue.  Say Anything’s music speaks in tongues of straightforward honesty and off-center commentary, in a way that pushes listeners to the point where they almost have to question Bemis’ sanity.  He has nurtured his ability to write about prototypical scenarios, while confronting them with a stream of words that are anything but streamline.  His wittily-written lines not only scream out Bemis’ quirky, peculiar mindset, but also of his ability to understand the industry and his fan base of music hungry listeners.

Loomis and the Lust hit the road to support their Space Camp EP

Loomis and the Lust

Searching for fun in the avant garde landscape of serious singer/songwriters, noise bands, or whomever else can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. Santa Barbara's Loomis and the Lust is indeed that needle. Embracing pop rock for all it's worth, their sound is a mix of hot guitar riffs, tongue-in-cheek lyrics, and a danceable backbone. Their first single off the Space Camp EP, 'Barbarella', is a sing-along romp that mixes surf rock, Brit pop, and Motown grooves (To my dismay, I was hoping it would lean more towards Duran Duran's 'Electric Barbarella' but I was mistaken).

The band will be playing Ground Zero at USC on Sept. 17th. before heading back North to play a few shows in their hometown of Santa Barbara.
