Odd Future Destroy On Fallon

I can count on less than 1 hand how many times I’ve written about hip hop on this site. It’s called Rock Insider after all. That’s not to say I haven’t been following what Odd Future aka OFWGKTA have been up to in the dark corners of LA. The group’s hardcore brand of hip hop is something you just can’t ignore. They dare to go there – and then some. Fact of the matter – They are INCREDIBLY PUNK. As a semi-reformed hardcore kid I fucking support that 100%.

Tyler, The Creator and Hodgy Beats made their network television debut on Fallon last night performing “Sandwitches.” They made the set all their own. Try and ignore that.  Watch above.

Arc In Round – Spirit

Arc In Round (Philadelphia, PA)

I don’t remember where I first stumbled upon Philadelphia natives Arc in Round. All I know is when this cinematic and lush tune comes up in my queue my ears perk up. The melody on the distorted keyboard perfectly compliments the smoky/fuzzy vocals.

You can download their EP Diagonal Fields on Bandcamp.

MP3: Arc In Round – Spirit

“Black Jesus are a 7-member mammoth of a band featuring four handsome men and three gorgeous ladies that we’d all like to make our husbands/wives one day. When you hear them do harmonies you’ll want to marry them too, especially when you realize that they’re not even into the chorus yet and you’re already crying. A new record is out soon and we’re pretty sure all the cool bloggers will be putting it on lists 12 months from now.” - LA UNDERGROUND

Therapies Son – Yellow Mama

THERAPIES SON (VAN NUY, CA)

Transparent posted yet another track off Van Nuy’s native Therapies Son‘s debut EP Over The Sea. The EP will be released in March through the blog’s label. I already pre-ordered mine on import. There’s something about 10 inch vinyl that makes us giddy around these parts.

Such a great track. If you live in Los Angeles be sure to catch Therapies Son TONIGHT opening up for Smith Westerns and Yuck at The Echo.

Chelsea Wolfe – The Grime and The Glow

Chelsea Wolfe (Los Angeles, CA)

Chelsea Wolfe - where do I find the words to describe how mesmerizing her voice is.  These are the songs mystics sing in lands least traveled – through cold mornings just before dawn in the wilderness through deep snow.  Chelsea Wolfe’s music allows the listener to paint their own gothic scene with always a glimmer of light at the end. This kind of artistry is in short supply these days.

MP3: Chelsea Wolfe – Moses

Chelsea’s new album The Grime And The Glow is out now on Pendu Sound Recordings. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Los Angeles readers can catch her LA release show this Saturday Feb 12th at Show Cave in Eagle Rock. Details can be found below.

Blackbird Blackbird – Give You Everything

Blackbird Blackbird (San Francisco, CA)

Seriously how fucking great is this track? Mikey Sanders aka Blackbird Blackbird has done it again, This could be the happiest electro jam I’ve heard in ages and the whole thing has an underlying track of bird noises. I love discovering hidden gems.

MP3: Blackbird Blackbird – Give You Everything.

Blackbird Blackbird are currently touring the east coast w/ Braids & Baths. Dates below!

Extreme Makeover – BLOG Edition

We’ve been doing some much needed spring cleaning around these blog parts and are excited to launch our brand new layout. We couldn’t have done it without help from our friend Nicholas who deserves a mega shout out for helping us tame the code monster that lives on our web server.

You will notice several key changes around the blog – the biggest being that Rock Insider is now integrated with the JAXART website. Rock Insider and JAXART have always been joined at the hip and now they’ve officially tied the knot. It was a beautiful ceremony.

We have also done away with the LA Show Calendar for the time being. If you want the skinny on upcoming shows in LA for the week ahead Sign Up for our weekly concert calendar blast.

New site features:

- JAXART Events Calendar - Listing all our upcoming events and shows we think you should check out
- Links To The JAXART Shop
- JAXART mailing list sign up – Where we give away tickets, goodies, gossip, & more.
- New navbar complete with links to our twitter, facebook, vimeo, 8 tracks, and youtube accounts.

So click around and explore our new look. Be sure to leave us a comment and let us know what you think!
