Recap: Giraffage ft. Spazzkid at the El Rey!

Over the weekend, I saw Giraffage and Spazzkid at their closing show at the El Rey! A sold out show at a small venue – all I can say is that it was one big dance party. 


StarRo opened up the show, and he really got the crowd moving with his instrumental beats and dance remixes – especially through opening his set with a remix of “Latch” by Disclosure. That’s always a crowd favorite since everyone knows the lyrics! But what really caught my attention during his set was his use of an electronic drum pad, while mixing songs and beats simultaneously. Everything had a natural feel to it, rather than just computer-produced sounds. 


Spazzkid & starRo


Once Spazzkid came out, everyone was really into the music, and most people knew the flow of every song, even if they were just beats. Everyone “sang” along, and really vibed with him. StarRo and Spazzkid gave so much energy on stage, not just through their music, but through actually dancing and interacting with the audience. Their love for music really translated through their aura on stage. Spazzkid also has some really trippy visuals in the background, most of which were Asian girls or a mix of 3-d graphics.

This was the first time I really got to listen to Giraffage, and his sound is so different live. He really utilized his lights and cute dog visuals within his set. (YES, cute dog visuals - corgis, a dancing golden retriever, frenchies on swings, you name it.) Every song he played got the crowd dancing – especially through his remixes of “Party in the USA,” “Ignition,” and closing with an encore by playing his mix of “Someone to Call My Lover” by Janette Jackson. What better way to end a show than with some good throwbacks?

New Music from Passion Pit!


Passion Pit is a renowned feel-good favorite. You may be familiar with some of their popular songs, such as “Take a Walk,” or “Carried Away.” With Michael Angelakos as lead vocals and keyboards, and Jeff Apruzzese playing bass and synth bass, Passion Pit never fails to make you feel ecstatic, despite their darker underlying lyrics.



Passion Pit is definitely one of my all time favorites, and I’m happy to see that they’re finally releasing a new album! I saw them live at Club Nokia about 2 years ago, and a handful of shows later, that specific concert is still my all time favorite. They haven’t released a full record since Gossamer in 2012, so it’s exciting to see what they’re coming up with. Their upcoming album, Kindred, is set to release on April 21st through Columbia Records.

Watch/listen to their album teasers below:

Recap: Daedelus at The Echoplex!


Last Thursday, I got to see Daedelus perform at The Echoplex in Echo Park, courtesy of the man himself. After seeing him perform live again after our interview together, it’s just amazing to see how passionate he is about his music. You could just see the smile on his face when he drops a beat, and this really translates through his music and through the crowd. The crowd really vibed with him throughout the night; everywhere you turned, you could see everyone bobbing their heads to the beat, or dancing to the sweet sounds. His mesmerizing visuals also helped set the mood throughout the show. Other artists that performed that night included Boogie and Nosaj Thing! Overall, really great performances from all the artists.

Meet Kilo Kish!


Vocalist, songwriter, visual artist, painter, textile designer, and model Kilo Kish is one of the most well-rounded and down to earth artists you will ever come across.  Kish was originally born in Florida, but then moved to New York to study Textile Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology. She released her first EP, Homeschool, in 2012, and since then, has released K+ and Across. She’s worked with big name artists such as Childish Gambino, A$AP Ferg, The Internet, and more. Today, Kish tells us about her experiences as a musician, the inspirations behind her EP Across, and what she’s working on now. 



How would you describe your sound for those who have never listened to your music?

i would say its super conversational it has a stream of consciousness vibe as well i think a lot of my songs are really me talking to myself

 

How did you first start out at a musician? 

pretty much for fun, I had a roommate who was a rapper and we would fool around at home in the at home studio he had made and the rest is kind of what it is now 

 

What motivates you?

I like exploring myself through art and trying my best to arrive at making some sense out of my world and our world. I really love working on projects conceptually, i get a lot of gratification out of working on something completely.

Recap: Brooke Fraser & Dark Waves at The Fonda


Last Thursday, I got the chance to see Brooke Fraser and Dark Waves live at the Fonda, courtesy of our friends over at Goldenvoice! Overall, it was a night of really great performances. With this New Zealand native’s mesmerizing voice, sense of humor, and stunning use of visuals, she was truly able to bring her music to life (She even did a cover of Love Lockdown!). Personally, I think she sounds like a mix of Lorde and HAIM - Lorde instrumentals, with that Danielle Haim voice. Dark Waves were a great opening act, and set the mood for the audience as we waited for Brooke. Listen to some of her songs below, and check out the rest of the recap!

A Sneak Peak from Toro Y Moi's Upcoming Album


Chaz Bundick, otherwise known as Toro y Moi, is a recording artist and producer signed to Carpark Records. He is well known for his releases during the rise of chillwave in 2010. His past albums include Causers of This, Underneath the Pine, and Anything in Return. Bundick is also known for his side project, Les Sins, and the release of his latest album, Michael. He recently revealed that his next album, What For? will be released on April 7, 2015! He will be performing at Coachella this year, but will also be making a pitstop in Los Angeles, at the Fonda Theater, on April 16th.  

 

“While it is obvious that each song is crafted around a personally meaningful experience, Chaz seems to purposefully leave the lyrics just vague enough to let each listener mold it into something unique. Chaz presents you with a few themes: love, beauty, nature; and gently lets go of your hand so you can wander off on your own.”


Listen to his new track, “Empty Nesters” here

Meet Daedelus!


Los Angeles based producer Alfred Darlington, better known as Daedelus, has been taking the electronic music scene by storm since his first album release in 2001. Since then, he has released music on various labels, such as Ninja Tune and Brainfeeder; performed live sets big and small, from Low End in Los Angeles, to the depths of the jungles of Boracay, Philippines; and has recently invented his own music-making device. He is one of the most fascinating musicians – not just because of his Dandyist Victorian-era looks, but through his passionate outlook on the world of music, use of the monome in live performances, and inventive persona. Luckily, I was able to talk to him, in person, over a cup of joe at Go Get ‘Em Tiger.


 

Since we’re already in a coffee shop, how do you like your coffee? What’s your go-to shop?

Black or espresso. My favorite shops are Go Get Em Tiger, and G&B.

 

How did you choose the name Daedelus?

When I was a kid, I wanted to be an inventor. I liked the idea of making things; I had this fascination in my childhood. I had the knowledge of real people but was also intrigued by mythology. Later in life, I like to think that I’ve been able to fill those shoes. I try to be an inventor as much as I can.

 

How would you define your sound for those who have never heard your music?

A lot of sounds. I used to say my sound was romantic – sick in your stomach because you’re so overwhelmed with feelings. I can go from playing at a cheesy EDM rave, to playing at a wedding, or playing in a tiny room. It’s not so much that I’m changing, but the sound is changing. We expect people we put on pedestals to be amazing artists, but very few people get rewarded for trying new things.
