NEW TRACKS: The Arctic Monkeys - ‘Do I Wanna Know?’
Suck It And See brought us a darker, heavier, and more grown up Arctic Monkeys that we happily banged our heads for live. The subsequent release of tracks like “R U Mine” and “Electricity” followed a similar trend. Now knowing that singer Alex Turner took his motorcycles (and bad ass attitude) to L.A., and collaborated with the king of dark sexy vibes, Josh Homme, we’ve have had our ideas about what a possible 2013 album from Arctic Monkeys would sound like.
Clearly, they are delivering. Performing this new track live in Ventura last night, we hear a song about love and yearning with a sinister undertone. Our thoughts? Hell yes. Check it out and cross your fingers for a new album and tour in 2013. We know we are.
What a GREAT day for music! Alex Turner always makes us swoon.
SHOW PREVIEW: Best Coast
No one does poppy, California-doused indie rock quite like Best Coast. Fronted by the tatted-up, tousle-haired Bethany Cosentino, Best Coast earned a whole new wave of fans after sophomore album The Only Place was released last May. The album sort of encapsulates the Best Coast vibe: open, honest songs about relationships, catchy, jangly-pop hooks, and an onslaught of never-ending ‘I-love-you’s’ to California, the only place worth living in Cosentino’s opinion.
Founded in 2009 by Cosentino and friend Bobb Bruno, the band released their surf rock, lo-fi side, debut album Crazy for You the following year to rave reviews from critics. It even gained a few famous fans, with actress Drew Barrymore directing a star-studded music video for track “Our Deal.” Since then, the hype for the band has only been growing.
Get your lo-fi fix when Best Coast comes to the club on June 4!

People are still outraged at Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries’s attitude towards plus-size women, so Greg Karber goes to a Goodwill store, buys all of the Abercrombie clothing, and gives it to homeless people on Skid Row to transform the brand’s image.
