So I didn’t make it out to LAMC again(sad face emoji here), no biggie I continue to find new music ‘cuz that’s what I like to do with a little help from my friends. New music by a few artists you may have heard of and several you most likely haven’t from Porter (MX), Kinky(MX/LA), Jorge Drexler (Uruguay), Kikagaku Moyo (Japan), , Guts (Spain), Cosmic Analog Ensemble (France), Ayer Amarillo (MX), Cafe Tacvba(MX), Ciclo (Nicaragua) . Be sure to also give a listen to some of our great local acts with new music and shows; Sin Color, Twin Seas, Crashing Star, L.A. Witch, Wesley Park, Daizy, Messiahs From Outer Space, and The Tissues.
