Talk in Tongues Were Born in the '90s, But Their Sound Is Pure '80s Shoegaze

The crowd is thick surrounding Bardot's stage. Onlookers stand close as Talk in Tongues whip through one psychedelic pop jam after the next. It might seem as though the band has been playing its big-guitar, harmony-heavy tunes since the shoegaze wave of the late 1980s and early '90s, but that...

The Owner of Canter's Deli Has a Plan to Reunite Guns N' Roses

I think about the possibility of the Appetite for Destruction lineup reuniting more often than I think about many of my dead relatives. So pop-culture website Uproxx’s three-part mini-documentary, One Man's Plan to Reunite Guns N' Roses, grabbed my fascination by its imaginary leather pants within seven opening seconds: A mid-'80s clip...

What Happens When Rabid Concertgoers Get Old?

Snoop Dogg-Backed Weed Delivery Is Coming to Los Angeles

While riding Uber, a thought may have crossed your mind. Why not combine a weed delivery with vehicles and drivers flexible enough to serve all kinds of destinations? Snoop Dogg and others are aiming to make that dream come true. The rap star is now a contributing investor in new...

This Fake FYF Flyer Proves It's Not That Hard for Festivals to Book More Women

These days, in most genres of music — especially rock, as demonstrated by last year's wildly successful, female-focused Burger a-Go-Go festival — women are just as active as men. So why are so many major music festivals still big, hairy bro-fests? The sausage party effect was cleverly illustrated in a...

Depeche Mode's Martin Gore Talks About His "Sci-Fi" Solo Album, MG

Martin Gore makes note of his "old school" tendencies on a recent phone call. He appreciates that music-making technology has become so portable and accessible that people can create with minimal equipment. However, that's not his style. "I find it very inspirational to be surrounded by equipment," says the Depeche...

Hear a New Song From Jon DeRosa's L.A.-Inspired Album, Black Halo (PREMIERE)

Tropical House Is Hot Now, But Will it Last?

The first time I heard Kygo, it was like breathing in fresh air after leaving a sauna. The song was a remix of Passenger’s “Let Her Go,” and I heard it just as I was getting to the peak of my jadedness with big room house, well-known for its predictable...

On Double Naught Spy Car's Panorama City, Songs Were Made Up on the Spot

You might call veteran surf/roots/jazz/rock/psych/world/whatyougot crew Double Naught Spy Car a contemporary electric chamber ensemble, but that’d sound a touch too arty, and the L.A. quartet is anything but toffee-nosed about their super-eclectic musical melange. While this gang of good buds can boast some of the finest instrumentalists our town...

Every Odd Future Album, Ranked

Believe it or not, we're already a half-decade into the Odd Future era. While their first mixtape dropped in late 2008, it wasn't until the 2010 one-two punch of Earl Sweatshirt's "Earl" and Tyler, the Creator's "French" videos that a viral phenomenon was born. But unlike most hip-hop blog darlings,...

Australia's Alison Wonderland Is Ready to Take the U.S. EDM Scene by Storm (VIDEO)

Playing Coachella at 2:30 p.m. on a Saturday is no easy task. Half the attendees aren't even there yet; the ones who are tend to be nursing hangovers from the night before, or conserving their energy for that evening's headliners, or both. It's also hot enough to cause flower crowns...
