When Diplo travels to Las Vegas for his regular gig at the nightclub XS, he doesn't take a private jet as many of his peers in Vegas' cash-choked club scene do. Instead, the Los Angeles-based DJ and producer usually trudges through TSA with the plebes at Burbank's Bob Hope Airport, not far from...
It's sometimes hard to fathom the bounty of remarkable music emanating from Los Angeles in any given week. If the sound doesn't arrive via the dozens of nightly gigs overwhelming clubs and theaters, it booms with the volume through new release announcements, video or song premieres, mixtape and...

The work that the German electronic music experimentalist Dieter Moebius crafted as part of the duo Cluster starting in the early 1970s had little precedent. Moebius, who died this week at age 71, helped construct richly emotive ambient tracks and early beat-based works that helped set the tones...

For the 50th anniversary of the world premiere of the Beatles second film, "Help!," the South Pasadena Library will host a free screening on July 30 following a performance of Beatles songs by an ad hoc group of Fab Four-inspired musicians.
Self-reliance doesn't come easy to 23-year-old Jessie Jones. Luckily for her, the '60s - and her devotion to the era's pop music - happened and helped her kick some nervous habits.
Where would Paul McCartney be without John Lennon? Where would Keith Richards be without fellow "Glimmer Twin" Mick Jagger? Where would Drake be without... Quentin Miller?
While most other superstar artists are either on vacation, on tour or otherwise removed from the conversation, Prince is spending the summer focused on protest and injustice.
De Lux singer and lyricist Sean Guerin was merely trying to fall asleep when he struck upon the idea for "Oh Man the Future," a song from the Glendale duo's new album, "Generation."
When Mexican singer-songwriter Natalia Lafourcade launched her eponymous first album at the age of 19 in 2003, it hardly seemed like the sort of contender to top the charts.
Tame Impala, "Currents" (Interscope). The songs on the new album by Australian songwriter, singer and primary Tame Impala member Kevin Parker double down on the tripped-out psychedelia of his earlier work. But "Currents" accomplishes this through a lightness of touch and a broader palette. As on...
