Photos and words by Scott Sheff It’s been more than 20 years since The Ocean Blue released its self-titled debut album, and over 10 years since its last studio work. New and old fans packed The Satellite to see the band deliver a set of dreamy, atmospheric music that garnered the indie pop band wide acclaim in its early days. Touring in support of its latest full-length album Ultramarine , The Ocean Blue picked up where they left off without skipping a beat. Known for its airy jangles and hooks, the new music continues [...]

Founded in 2012 by Jayk Gallagher, Hobart W Fink describe themselves as slightly nerdy, ironic indie rock with a soupçon of grunge. The band's co-lead singers, Gallagher and Marie Bollinger, blend razor sharp harmonies atop their eclectic stew of rock influences. Their debut single, "Hundred Dollar Bill," is gutsy, grungy, and raw. A fast-paced and edgy rock tune that never takes itself too seriously. The band has a release show at The Satellite May 30 followed by an EP release in July at Casey's Pub. - Jacqueline Caruso

Rolling Stones Finally Let Mick Taylor Loose On Sticky Fingers Classics At Staples Center In Los Angeles
Last night was the evening Rolling Stones fans have been waiting for since it was announced that former guitarist Mick Taylor would be joining the band as a guest on their 50 and Counting Tour. Up until yesterday's show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the use of Taylor has been sparse with "The Other Mick" only turning up to perform on Midnight Rambler each night and on (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction at a handful of shows. At The Staples Center Taylor performed on a total of four songs, two of which were long-awaited tour debuts. [...]
Thank god. It seems trap producers are making a real effort to keep the style fresh and not recycle the same old formula. While 8082s, fast hi-hats, and snare rolls will always be part of the genre, there are a so many artists now getting more comfortable using new sounds and rhythms. This week is just a sample of some of those artists. It's no surprise why ƱZ is here, the real highlights of this batch are the up-and-comers: Brazillian Tropkillas , LA's Kayzo , and our friends Chasing Dragonz . The vibes of some [...]

What is merely a tease to his upcoming full length release, "Remind Me," is the first single off of experimentalist Lee Noble's 'Ruiner' LP. With a touch of drone-y atmospherics, the song dishes out a heavy does of mood while managing to maintain a sense of rhythm and melody that is more often neglected in this genre for the sake of boundary-pushing. Crunchy guitar swells drift atop lo-fi drum machine loops and ambient sound design as Noble moans with the emotional inflection found on Thom York's 'Eraser,' and the affected lethargy of early Atlas Sound. Dappled with homespun [...]

Over ten years ago, millions of pre-teen girls began their crush on a young actor/musician playing prince to Anne Hathaway's princess. Tonight, in a dark bar in Silverlake, Los Angeles, those same girls – now women – are wanting a lot more from that prince than a peck on the cheek... His name is Robert Schwartzman, and he is currently smack dab in the middle of a month's residency at the Satellite, a local venue tucked into the Silverlake hills offering free Monday night resident acts. Schwartzman (formerly of the band Rooney, and of Coppola royalty), has gained [...]
