This Week: New Music from Earl Sweatshirt and Action Bronson!


This week, we're graced with new album releases from both Earl Sweatshirt and Action Bronson.

Earl's self-produced album, "I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside," is available on iTunes and streaming through Spotify. According to Pitchfork, "the album's aesthetic is still based in the ambling beats, messy synth counterpoint and off-jazz chording to which Odd Future releases usually defer." His 10 track album features Vince Staples, Na'kel, and others. Meanwhile, Action Bronson has released his 13 track album, "Mr Wonderful." Stereogum says, "It's a full-bodied soulful album that kicks off with a Billy Joel sample, and stays deep in jazz and soul territory." Bronson's album features tracks with Chance the Rapper, Big Body Bes, and more.

Stream both albums below!

Tuxedo Album Release Party!



Mayer Hawthorne and Jake Uno have teamed up to form the funk duo, Tuxedo. They released their self named album, "Tuxedo," on March 3, 2015, and since then have remained #1 on R&B charts. The duo also hosted an album release show the following night at The Regent Theater in Downtown LA. With Mayer Hawthorne being one of my favorite artists, it's really fun seeing him team up with Jake Uno to create an album that just makes you want to dance - which is what their original intention was when they first started. NPR said, "Jake and Hawthorne have mastered a new old sound." With Dam-Funk and Peanut Butter Wolf as opening acts, it was one groovy night to remember.

Lola Blanc: Friday's Recap and a Chat with Lola Herself!


Last Friday, Lola Blanc came and performed for us here at Space15Twenty! She’s a singer, songwriter, actress, and model based right here in Los Angeles. She’s widely known for co-writing Britney Spears’ single “Ooh La La,” and for her colorful style and dance music. It was a great turnout for the night, and the weather was perfect for a concert under the stars. With Miss Glitt3r’s jammin’ dj set that prepped the crowd for Lola, and drinks complimentary of House Beer, we had one dance big party! Luckily, I was able to talk to Lola for a little bit before the show about herself, her career, and what’s coming next.


Lola & Miss Glitt3r


How did you choose the name Lola Blanc?

I’ve always been obsessed with lolitas! I wanted to embody the spirit of what it meant. Choosing “Blanc” was just me wanting to be French.

How would you describe your sound?

I’ve been working on a new description for that so that one’s kinda tough! But I’d say early 2000’s hiphop meets Cabaret pop

How did you first start out as musician?

I’ve been writing since I was 9, and I was really obsessed with the Spice Girls. I just knew I wanted to be a pop star.

What’s been your favorite experience throughout your career?

Just the process of making music videos and doing all these things that would usually require a major record label to do.


Who are you listening to right now?

Childish Gambino; I also put on a playlist of sad music a lot. It’s really nostalgic of when I was a sad teenager.

Where do you get the most inspiration?

Movies – my favorite is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind! Been really inspired by Liza Minnelli, lots of old music.

What are your favorite trends lately?

I like this idea of polished and classic. I’m growing up and I feel like the trends are growing up with me too.

What’s next for you?

My EP! More videos and more shows.

What’s one thing you’ve learned throughout your career?

Be as brutally honest with yourself as you can! It’s the best thing you can do for yourself.

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.


Spazzkid


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.
