Heat for Haim!

Band crush >> Haim << three sisters from Los Angeles (Valley Village) who grew up playing in a covers band with their parents. Whoa! Doesn’t get much better than that. They have been playing around LA for the past five years and will be getting in some serious tour chops this winter when they open for Florence and The Machine in the UK. Their haunting voices and bittersweet harmonies will stay with you long after the last note has rung out. All three sisters sing and shred on guitars, bass, keys. So glad they are making music!

NEW! Alicia Murphy interview in Griffith Park

Last summer (2011) we caught a lucky break and were able to interview Alicia Murphy in Griffith Park, Los Angeles. We took a super nice morning walk in the park and chatted a bit with the sunny and talented folk singer. She let us in on some of her influences and growing up in a musical household. We dig her! Alicia Murphy has a new EP coming out, It is or It Isn’t, August 17th, 2012. Catch her playing shows in LA or Davis with her band The Mandlebrot Set. www.aliciamurphymusic.com
