Starcrawler Announces Sophomore LP DEVOUR YOUStarcrawler Announces Sophomore LP DEVOUR YOU
by TV News Desk - Aug 1, 2019

To kick off the album announcement, Starcrawler share the heavy, swinging and brutally catchy “Bet My Brains” alongside its manic and murderous music video. “That song came from thinking about the tunnel people in New York and Vegas and the Catacombs in France, and the underground village of people who live in the sewers of the L.A. River,” says de Wilde. “I was fascinated with the fact that there is a whole other world happening right under our feet.” Guitarist and vocalist Henri Cash adds: “Arrow and I hadn't even talked about it yet, but I'd already written something about the same thing—about how these people's eyes adapt to pitch-blackness, and they end up going crazy from never seeing the sunlight.” Check out the song and the Jellyclaw-directed video below!

Lauren Ruth Ward New Single HUNGRY BARBER via CoS FeatureLauren Ruth Ward New Single HUNGRY BARBER via CoS Feature
by BWW News Desk - Apr 4, 2019

Today, Lauren Ruth Ward struts her 70s psych chops and blends enchanting folk stylings on poignant new track, “Hungry Barber” via Consequence of Sound “Origins” feature. Described by Lauren and longtime collaborator Eduardo Rivera, “Hungry Barber” is “...a departure from our usual sound and process. The main percussive elements were done by tapping and flipping the pages of my songwriting journal. First pass, stream of conscience lyrics about the inner dialogue when chasing the night. Recorded by Eduardo and produced by us both. It's the antithesis of what we songwriters are asked to do: write a 3 minute-ish song, use budget to work with bigger names, hire players, etc. Ed and I wanted to see what it would sound like to create in-house and not think 'what genre are we?' or 'what will the label think?'” (more...)

On Friday, March 22, the LA Phil presented BREATHEWATCHLISTENTOUCH: The Work and Music of Yoko Ono at Walt Disney Concert Hall as part of the LA Phil's season-long Fluxus Festival, produced in partnership with the Getty Research Institute and Girlschool who named the concert after Ono's Dance Piece X which includes a Fluxus score that is a fitting summation of the grace, love, and sense of peace that permeates her career.
