Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks’ - Enter the Slasher House

20 April 2014

Austin - Though the band name and cover art might suggest some sort of black metal nightmare, Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks’ “Enter the Slasher House” is more like a whimsical fun house.  If anything, this album was created from the trappings of a bad acid trip, though...

Harriet Ends Its Echo Residency With A Bang

Published in Live Reviews
Wednesday, 27 March 2013 07:45
  One of my favorite things about the Los Angeles music scene is its residencies. Every month, a few magical venues host Monday (or in some cases, Tuesday) night residencies, in which one lucky (and well-deserving) local act is graced with the privilege of headlining once a week for a whole month (!!). During March, Harriet was that fortunate band...

TORCHES And Lovelife Transform The Echo

Published in Live Reviews
Tuesday, 26 March 2013 03:26
  Friday nights in Los Angeles are always exhilarating, and last weekend The Echo transformed from its typical small bar/venue feel into a stadium of sorts with epic performances by L.A. natives TORCHES and UK/New York-based electro-poppers Lovelife. The night began with TORCHES’ sweeping, anthemic brand of indie rock. Though recorded the band co...

Foxygen Awes The Echo

Published in Live Reviews
Sunday, 23 September 2012 23:05
Foxygen was a name I heard floating around in the blogosphere, but something I (shamefully) never took the time to research. When I heard that the duo was playing with Moonface at The Echo, I figured I’d check them out. Why not? Getting to that show early was one of the smartest things I’ve ever done. Led by vocalist Sam France and keyboardist/g...

Published in Interviews
Tuesday, 05 June 2012 15:54
For a new artist, Harlan has been making a lot of headway and fast. It’s not too often that you can score a Monday residency at The Echo in Los Angeles unless you have the chops to win over the notoriously fickle crowd of hipsters and industry types. But Harlan has done that. Citing Prince, Genesis and Shuggie Otis, his music is filled with memor...

Los Angeles band RACES is hitting the scene with their first full-length album, Year of the Witch. Formed in 2009, RACES have distinguished themselves through their alternative, orchestral, rolling melodies and awesomely spastic moments of fuzzed-up, garage instrumentals.

Class Actress Takes The Echo Back to The ‘80s

Published in Live Reviews
Friday, 24 February 2012 11:53
  When you see Elizabeth Harper twisting and twirling on stage, seductively cooing lyrics about sex, love, and fame, and occasionally pounding on a synthesizer, it’s hard to imagine that the chanteuse started as a singer-songwriter. With the amount of energy she exudes during her live performances, it seems unnatural to picture her planted on a ...
