Announcement!Fresh TracksMusic Adds

Music Adds March 25, 2020…or…how I learned to stop worrying and love social distancing!

By March 25, 2020 No Comments
(Left): Alt-rock icon Stephen Malkmus follows up 2019’s electro-poppy Groove Denied with a delightfully fresh psych-folk masterpiece, Traditional Techniques. (Right): Angelica Garcia powerfully digs into her East LA roots with her much-anticipated debut album Cha Cha Palace. (Below): Garcia serenades LA from rooftop with the song “Guadalupe”. Good time all around for impromptu rooftop and driveway performances! Keep calm and rock on.
