Stream: Ben & Ellen Harper, ‘A House Is a Home’

0

Mother’s Day is Sunday, so we would be remiss (if not severely upbraided) if we did not tout the new album “Childhood Home” (out this week). It’s the work of Ben & Ellen Harper – yes, the son in collaboration with the mother – and you’d be hard-pressed to find a more familial album of […]

Monday madness: ‣ Since Scottish trio Chvrches last visited L.A. in May, they’ve released their full-length “The Bones of What You Believe” and toured a lot. The indie-pop trio returns tonight for a date at the Wiltern. That’s their video for “The Mother We Share,” above. ‣ Body Parts continue their residency at the Satellite […]

0

This qualifies as a Monster Monday: ‣ Bon Iver plays the first of two L.A. dates, tonight at the Shrine, and equally good, for our money, are tourmates Other Lives, whose album “Tamer Animals” will end up near the top of BBLA’s 2011 lists. ‣ James Blake and Teengirl Fantasy do a second night at […]

Mp3-pack: Micol Cazzell, Fistful of Mercy, Low

1

[Some mellow stuff in today’s three-pack. Enjoy …] ‣ Micol Cazzell, “Hollowed Out.” Young Central Valley folkie Cazzell self-released his DIY album “Spinner’s Yarn” this summer. I like this song, and some of my favorite musicians are from Modesto. Hear some more here. ‣ Fistful of Mercy, “Father’s Son.” Acoustic goodness from the triumvirate of […]
