Beyond the Cerebral: Nosaj Thing, Jogger and Daedelus Live at Le Poisson Rouge in NYC

Ever worked out almost to the point of exhaustion and experienced runner’s high? Been in the presence of someone you could’ve swore was your soul mate? Lay within the gentle glow and breeze of a perfect, 75-degree day? Or baked in an 180-degree sauna for 20 minutes? Then you probably already know the feeling: “I have left this world and am floating amidst the clouds, sun, and trees.”
With one swift wave of his hand on Feb. 20 at NYC’s sexiest, swankiest spot Le Poisson Rouge, L.A. breakthrough beatmaker Nosaj Thing shot out electrical shock waves of meditative nirvana. Buddhists say all our suffering is caused by desire. If so, Nosaj’s set was the antigravity vacuum where desire dissipates into oodles of undulating, blissful indifference. What helped was wordlessness, an absence of reason and the cerebral. As technologically advanced as Jason Chung’s music is, his zeroes and ones are purely emotive, free-flowing and visceral.


Best of LA #24 Lemon Sun to play The Echo April 29th

Lemon Sun plays pure, unadulturated rock and roll.  With a voice that evokes Against Me's Tom Gabel, Rob Kolar's vocals are both masculine and lilting.  It's clear upon the first listen of any of their songs that this band loves to play together.  Songs such as "Same Old Ground" and "Touch the Lightning" are sure to convert anyone to an instant fan. 


Best of LA #24 Spindrift to play the Prospector March 11th

The seven piece band, Spindrift has married the grit of the wild west with the mind altering effects of psych rock. The union has proven to be a great one, as seen in their latest album The West.  They are on tour this month, stopping in Long Beach on the 11th and The Redwood Bar in LA on the 26th. 


Knock in the 'Wood

This Thursday night at Hollywood's 3 of Clubs, Rumspringa's rollicking rhythms will cause many heads to inadvertently bob and many hips to inexplicably gyrate. If you've never seen this L.A. duo live, then it's about time you experience post-psychedelic, R&B-inspired rock that smacks of The Doors and Velvet Underground-- only made for this generation's 20-somethings who want to live in the moment... whatever that means. Just come. They'll be joined by Beaters and Twin Tigers. The Deli LA will be there too-- handing out mags, taking photos and soaking up the sound waves.
