Go See Owen Pallett At The El Rey

Owen Pallett El Rey Los Angeles

Have you seen the movie Her? It’s a undoubtedly a new LA classic film, one that shows off the city as this wondrous and somewhat utopian city. It’s well made and looks good and also sounds good too. A big part of it “sounding” good is new classicist and avant pop musician Owen Pallett‘s contributions. The Canadian composer is very talented and highly regarded and is actually coming to town next week, to play a show on September 13 at the El Rey. Are you a fan of his or curious to see what he’s all about? You’re in luck: we have a pair of tickets to the show to giveaway, courtesy of our friends over at Goldenvoice.

To make matters worse (Or better?), their new collaboration with Comme des Garçons has surfaced and it is a sexy, sleek camo pair of kicks.

Peaking Lights’ Breakdown

Peaking Lights Breakthrough Los Angeles

If you still have the idea of an all too gentle and ethereal sound for the band Peaking Lights, you should maybe drop it. The days of lightweight Lucifer from two years ago, when the band was relatively new to the area, are gone. How? Their new song “Breakdown” is an aggressively fun assertion into the dance category. It’s sunny and bright and a song that everyone is going to love in late Summer.
