Stream: Almost Monday, ‘Hailey Beebs’

San Diego dance-pop trio Almost Monday has gone from nowhere to “know-them” in just a year and half, tapping into a common commercial formula: Keep things funky, euphoric and, as their choruses are concerned, big — even at the risk of running them into the ground. Having made their mark with their 2019 single “Broken People” (and, eventually, it Sofi Tukker remix), the trio of singer Dawson Daugherty, bassist Luke Fabry […]

And […]

Video: Bizou, ‘Tragic Lover’

L.A. quartet Bizou lives at the intersection of post-punk and popgazing, a dimly lit street corner where angst hangs out and watches old tapes of MTV’s “120 Minutes.” They’ve released two EPs, a 2019 self-titled debut and last year’s “Stilllifeburning,” both aperitifs for their first full-length. Today, the quartet — singer Marissa Prietto (Wax Idols, Glaare), multi-instrumentalist/producer Josiah Mazzaschi (Light FM), Nicole Fiorentino (The Cold and Lovely, and former bassist for […]

Ears Wide Open: Palms Station

Palms Station is the brainchild of singer-songwriter Hillel Tigay, who, once upon the late ’90s, was Dr. Dreidel in the Jewish hip-hop parody outfit M.O.T. (Members of the Tribe). He went on to become musical director of L.A.’s IKAR congregation and release two albums of modern Jewish liturgical music, “Judeo.” “Alive,” which appeared on the second “Judeo” album (as well as in Season 1 of the TV program “Manifest”), serves […]

Video: Cale Tyson, ‘Alone’

Texas native Cale Tyson ditched the twang but not the hat when he moved from Nashville to L.A. In 2019, he released two spectacularly melancholic EPs, “Narcissist” and “Who Hurt You?” And today he returns with his first single since, “Alone.” It’s only tangentially a song about being lonely — the beautifully glacial tune actually comes from the feeling that one’s lover is, ahem, otherwise involved. “I don’t think you’re […]

Stream: Liz Phair, ‘Spanish Doors’

Video: BIIANCO, ‘That’s What Friends Are For’

The visual for BIIANCO’s throbbing little electropop ditty “That’s What Friends Are For” — and it’s more than just a music video — could be titled “Rise of the Toxic Exes.” Of course, the point is that they eventually fall, too. Not simply the video embedded below, “That’s What Friends Are For” is an interactive video survival game. You can play via BIIANCO’s website here. Hint: Don’t make any bad […]
