Daniel Kohn

Ever since he first heard the opening chords to "Smells Like Teen Spirit," at the age of 11, Daniel Kohn has been hooked on music. Born in New York City, raised in the music hotbed of Long Island and currently residing in Los Angeles, Kohn has been writing since high school, when he realized he could get CDs for free. He's a sucker for '90s music, especially that from Seattle. Like a small minority of Americans, he likes football of the European variety, especially Liverpool. When he's not chasing down bands, you can find him at your local pub with a pint of Carlsberg, usually at ungodly hours cheering on his beloved Reds.

Whenever a band uses extensive synths and heavy, yet interesting production in their sound, there will always be a challenge in trying to get that music to translate well in a live setting. This is one of the major challenges that many indie and (in some cases) not so indie bands face today. It can either sound heavy or hollow, sometimes at the s...

In a time when the Internet is a kingmaker, it’s hard for a band to come from literally nowhere to land on the airwaves across the globe. But when you’re a band from the farthest stretches of Los Angeles county and have only been together for 18 months it makes things that much more interesting. Add to that the singer of the band was a budding ra...

There’s something pure about seeing a three-piece band rock like they’re playing in their garage or rehearsal. Yes, many of the big outfits over the years have been quartets, but that doesn’t take away from the stripped down simplicity of a three-piece. Last week at the Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles, RNDM, a trio hailing from all over, but for t...
