blog http://www.kcsn.org/blog/rss Songs Of Summer 2014 http://www.kcsn.org/blog/jeff-penfield/songs-of-summer-2014/ <p>Every summer a song comes along that seems to fit right in for the season. Of course a number of songs declaired "song of summer" lean a little poppy to outright catchy before getting old fast. Here are some songs destined to stick around, especially for this summer.</p> <p><strong>First Aid Kit's</strong> new album <strong><em>Stay Gold</em></strong> just looks and feels like summer. The warmth and optimisim of <strong>"Cedar Lane"</strong> fits perfectly with the season. This is a song to put on while relaxing on the porch watching the sun set on a cool summer night.</p> <div align="center"><iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/zKmit_uQrSQ?rel=0" width="560" height="315" frameborder="0"></iframe></div> <p> </p> <p><strong>The Shins</strong> had their big break when <strong>Zach Braff</strong> decided to include them on the <strong>Garden State</strong> soundtrack ten years ago. Now that a decade has passed, they come together again with <strong>"So What Now"</strong> on the soundtrack for <em><strong>Wish I Was Here</strong></em>. This song seems perfect for lounging on the beach or on a cruise with the top down.</p> <div align="center"><iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/R7-DjDF1MRM?rel=0" width="560" height="315" frameborder="0"></iframe></div> <p>  </p> <p><strong>Ryan Adams</strong> has a late entry, and although the full album doesn't come until the fall, <strong>"Gimme Something Good"</strong> should be considered a summertime song. Straightforward and hopeful, this is another one to enjoy during your vacation.</p> <p><iframe src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/156147140&amp;color=ff5500&amp;auto_play=false&amp;hide_related=false&amp;show_comments=true&amp;show_user=true&amp;show_reposts=false" width="100%" height="166" frameborder="no" scrolling="no"></iframe></p> <p> </p> <p>So what songs jump out to you this summer?</p> Fri, 25 Jul 2014 17:00:00 -0700 http://www.kcsn.org/blog/jeff-penfield/songs-of-summer-2014/ My Dream Concert for 2014 http://www.kcsn.org/blog/robert-hilburn/my-dream-concert-for-2014/ <p>One frequent question during my 35 years as pop critic at the Los Angeles Times was, "What's your favorite concert ever?"</p> <p>And I always had a hard time answering it because I saw an average of 100 concerts a year during that time, and there were so many magical moments each year.</p> <p>The shows that usually came to mind landmark performances by such varied figures as Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Janis Joplin, James Brown, the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen, Prince, U2 and the White Stripes.</p> <p>Yet I was never able to boil it down to a single favorite show.</p> <p>It’s much easier answering this question: “What concert are you most looking forward to seeing this year?"</p> <p>My choice, by far, is the Oct. 5 pairing at the Greek Theater of two of my favorite singer-songwriters ever: John Prine and Conor Oberst.</p> <hr><p>John’s self-titled debut album was a classic the moment it hit the shelves in the early 1970s—songs filled with convincing portraits of people caught in various stages of joy, acceptance and despair. I was so hooked that I went around for months quoting the lyrics—lines like these from “Sam Stone,” a song about a child’s horror at seeing his father return home from Vietnam combat with a heroin habit:</p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><em>There’s a hole in daddy’s arm, where all the money goes.</em></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><em>Jesus Christ died for nothin, I suppose.</em></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><em>In a sweeping change of pace, John, 24, wrote with equal empathy about the way old people are often shunned aside in a youth-obsessed culture. In “Hello in There,” he wrote:</em></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><em>You know that old trees just grow stronger,</em></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><em>And old rivers grow wilder every day.</em></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><em>But old people just grow lonesome,</em></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><em>Waiting for someone to say, “Hello in there, hello."</em></p> <div align="center"><iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/Sl9ZkYViEIs?rel=0" width="420" height="315" frameborder="0"></iframe> </div> <p>More than 30 years later, Conor’s “I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning” album—which he released under the group name Bright Eyes--hit with similar force. Conor, who had been making records in his native Omaha since his teens, was also 24 and his best songs conveyed an innocence and intelligence that enabled him to see the world with fresh and fearless eyes. He weaved his findings into intimate songs whose melodies are as timeless as a hymnal and whose images are hauntingly poetic.</p> <p>In “Lua,” one of my favorites Conor spoke about a night in New York with a girl who was moving close to the edge—a gripping reflection on the sometimes recklessness of youth:</p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><em>I got a flask inside my pocket</em></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><em>We can share it on the train</em></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><em>And if you promise to stay conscious</em></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><em>I will try and do the same.</em></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><em>We might die from medication</em></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><em>But we sure kill all the pain.</em></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><em>What was normal in the evening</em></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><em>By the morning seems insane.</em></p> <div align="center"><iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/5aZh261KZWI?rel=0" width="420" height="315" frameborder="0"></iframe> </div> <p>Conor’s latest album, “Upside Down Mountain,” released this spring under his own name, is his finest collection since “I’m Wide Awake,” which makes his Greek appearance doubly appealing.</p> <hr><p>Being a fan of both artists, I was delighted during Conor’s show in 2007 the El Rey Theatre when he sang a song that was blessed with so many of the same warm, human touches that made his work so compelling that most people in the theater figured it was one of his new songs. It was in fact “Crazy as a Loon,” a Prine song, about a man who keeps blaming the rest of the world for his problems. It was thrilling to have these two generations of songwriters joined however briefly.</p> <p>By sharing the bill for the first time ever in Los Angeles, the link between Prine and Oberst will be more notable at the Greek, and the results should be more thrilling.</p> <hr><p>Tickets on sale now at <a href="http://www.greektheatrela.com/events/event_details.asp?id=2863">Greek Theatre's website</a>.</p> Thu, 24 Jul 2014 11:20:38 -0700 http://www.kcsn.org/blog/robert-hilburn/my-dream-concert-for-2014/ Way Over Yonder Festival 9/26 and 9/27 http://www.kcsn.org/blog/jeff-penfield/way-over-yonder-festival-926-and-927/ <p>Way Over Yonder, the west coast’s version of Newport Folk Fesitival, returns for it’s second year at the Santa Monica Pier September 26th and 27th and KCSN is proud to announce we will be the official radio sponsor.

Artists like Robert Plant, Ryan Adams, Delta Spirit, and more have new albums on the way, but here are some to keep an eye on.</p> <p><strong>Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers <em>Hypnotic Eye</em> - Out July 29th</strong></p> <p>Petty and co. have been quiet since 2010's <strong><em>Mojo</em></strong>, but they look to make a spash with their new album at the end of the month. The band is rocking again on tracks like <strong>"Red River"</strong>.</p> <p><iframe src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/156006078&amp;color=ff5500&amp;auto_play=false&amp;hide_related=false&amp;show_comments=true&amp;show_user=true&amp;show_reposts=false" width="100%" height="166" frameborder="no" scrolling="no"></iframe></p> <p><strong>Tweedy <em>Sukierae</em> - Out September 16th</strong></p> <p>First rumors swirled that <strong>Jeff Tweedy</strong> of <strong>Wilco</strong> fame would release his first solo record this fall. Then, a few weeks later, came the first track <strong>"I'll Sing It"</strong> and the announcement that his son <strong>Spencer</strong> would be joining him on the drums and the group would simply go by Tweedy. Out on the road now, father and son already have lots of experience together when Spencer drums on <strong>Mavis Staple's</strong> album <strong>One True Vine</strong>, produced by Jeff.</p> <p><iframe src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/152676334&amp;color=ff5500&amp;auto_play=false&amp;hide_related=false&amp;show_comments=true&amp;show_user=true&amp;show_reposts=false" width="100%" height="166" frameborder="no" scrolling="no"></iframe></p> <p><strong>Jenny Lewis <em>The Voyager</em> - Out July 29th</strong></p> <p>Bringing it back home to Los Angeles, Jenny Lewis made a name for herself first as a child actress then as the lead singer of <strong>Rilo Kiley</strong>. Now on her second solo album she's just trying to be one of the guys, at least according to the first song we heard from the new album. Here's the video for <strong>"Just One Of The Guys"</strong> starring <strong>Anne Hathaway</strong>, <strong>Kristen Stewart</strong>, and <strong>Brie Larson.</strong></p> <div align="center"><iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/Irvcf6dCk-k?rel=0" width="560" height="315" frameborder="0"></iframe></div> <p> </p> <p>What are you excited for?</p> Wed, 16 Jul 2014 10:00:00 -0700 http://www.kcsn.org/blog/jeff-penfield/best-of-whats-next-in-2014/ Art Or Advertisment? http://www.kcsn.org/blog/jeff-penfield/art-or-advertisment/ <p>Just before the weekend, the <a href="http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/music/posts/la-et-ms-foster-the-people-mural-supermodel-remove-20140711-story.html" target="_blank">LA Times posted a story</a> about <strong>Foster The People's</strong> giant mural on the side of a downtown building at 539 S. Los Angeles St. The mural was painted in anticipation of their latest album <strong>Supermodel</strong> and it mirrors the artwork for the album. They received permits from the city to paint it, however the permits were recinded last week. Why? The city claimed that is was an advertisement for the album, which is against city regulation. Late last night, thanks to a petition started after Friday's announcement, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has saved it from being removed.</p> <div align="center"><img title="" src="http://www.kcsn.org/assets/Uploads/_resampled/resizedimage500500-Supermodel-Mural.jpg" alt="Supermodel Mural" width="500" height="500"></div> <p>This came a week after a mural in Philadelphia that was used as artwork for <strong>Kurt Vile's</strong> album <strong>Walkin On A Pretty Daze</strong> was painted over. The perpitrator who painted over the mural there said the it was attracting graffiti in the neighborhood.</p> <p>So that leads to this question: murals by musicians, artwork or advertisement?</p> <p>Looking at Foster The People's mural here in Los Angeles, there was no specific mention of the album on the mural. Although the painting of it was used in a promotional video and the band performed a special concert there, there was no further use to promote the release. Mark Foster, lead singer of the band, said he simply wanted to make a lasting impact on Los Angeles.</p> <p>The other way of looking at this is the mural was used to promote the album. Whether or not it mentions the album or the band, they used it for promotional purposes and it is, at the end of the day, the album cover. It implicitly is connected to Supermodel and could be considered an advertisement.</p> <p>So do you think this is art? Does a mural have to be specific to be considered an advertisement? Or does promotional use and implicit connections make it an oversized billboard?</p> Mon, 14 Jul 2014 09:20:33 -0700 http://www.kcsn.org/blog/jeff-penfield/art-or-advertisment/ CALIFORNIA CONVERGENCE http://www.kcsn.org/blog/sky-daniels/california-convergence/ <div align="center"><img class="center" title="" src="http://www.kcsn.org/assets/Uploads/The-FabForum.jpg" alt="The FabForum" width="300" height="182"></div> <p class="p1">It may seem fitting, or perhaps, ironic, that Beck has released “Blue Moon”, the first track from his self-proclaimed  new album of "California music…the songs are coming out of a California tradition. I'm hearing the Byrds, Crosby Stills and Nash, Gram Parsons, Neil Young – the bigger idea of what that sound is to me." During the heralded launch of the renovated Forum with a six night stand by The Eagles. </p> <p>Beck has held province as cutting-edge stalwart since his first release. As he examines the history of ‘California rock’ in his forthcoming record “Morning Phase”, The Eagles are documenting it in their concerts at The Forum. </p> <p>Industry pundit, Bob Lefsetz, in one of his more sincere proclamations, reveled, “Take the 405 to Manchester. Or La Cienega from downtown. Southward as you go. Because five more times this month the biggest band in Southern California history, in American history, is demonstrating what it was once like. When we were addicted to the radio, when going to the record store was a pilgrimage as important as a trip to Mecca or Jerusalem. When we couldn't wait to get home and break the shrinkwrap and hear what our favorites had to say.” </p> <p>When it was announced that The Forum would re-open, it was destiny that The Eagles would be the choice to revive this great Los Angeles institution. Irving Azoff, their manager and long-time Svengali, has a considerable financial interest in the building.  But, after witnessing one of their opening nights concerts, only a cynic would focus on finance, rather than the romance of the event. </p> <p>Everything you may have heard about the renovated facility seemed accurate to me. The sound was impeccable, the gigantic 4K screens were dynamic, the seats plush, and, yeah, the beers still cost a car payment.  The Forum’s walls are covered with celebratory photos of all the legendary acts that played the hallowed hall. </p> <p>The Eagles understood that history, and how it is entwined with their own, in their performance. Starting out with just Glenn Frey and Don Henley sitting on amps, they reminisced about their own ‘long road to Eden’.  Subsequently, each member of the band gradually made their way to the stage. At times, augmented by long-standing sidemen, they delivered stunning eight-part harmonies on a list of their most memorable compositions.  The Forum’s new sound system was integral to hearing those amazing vocals. </p> <p>The Eagles, like Beck,  paid homage to their own heroes, citing Linda Ronstadt, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Beach Boys, Jackson Browne, and, yes, The Byrds, as they took us all back to a time when  ‘the California sound’ was being birthed.   My own memories of those days seemed to have been perfectly stored, not only in my mind, but in that “Fabulous’ hall…</p> Mon, 20 Jan 2014 15:40:46 -0800 http://www.kcsn.org/blog/sky-daniels/california-convergence/ "Christmas in LA" with Owen Wilson & Harry Dean Stanton & The Killers http://www.kcsn.org/blog/mark-shovel/christmasinla/ <p>For those of us who know the joy of experiencing Christmas in Los Angeles, this video will hit home.</p> <p>This collaboration between The Killers and Dawes is an instant LA Holiday classic!</p> <p>To top it off, this video stars Harry Dean Stanton and Owen Wilson, epitomising the holidays in Hollywood.</p> <p>Enjoy this worthwhile LA Christmas gem.</p> <p> </p> <p>Happy Holidays!</p> <p>Shovel</p> <p> </p> <p><object bgcolor="#000000" data="http://videoplayer.vevo.com/embed/Embedded?videoId=USUV71302719&amp;playlist=false&amp;autoplay=0&amp;playerId=null&amp;playerType=embedded&amp;env=0&amp;cultureName=en_us&amp;cultureIsRTL=False" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="575" height="324"><param name="wmode" value="transparent"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"><param name="src" value="http://videoplayer.vevo.com/embed/Embedded?videoId=USUV71302719&amp;playlist=false&amp;autoplay=0&amp;playerId=null&amp;playerType=embedded&amp;env=0&amp;cultureName=en_us&amp;cultureIsRTL=False"><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true"><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></object></p> Fri, 13 Dec 2013 12:46:31 -0800 http://www.kcsn.org/blog/mark-shovel/christmasinla/ Nightmare AIr, The Foreign Resort, Light FM http://www.kcsn.org/blog/mark-shovel/nightmare-air-the-foreign-resort-light-fm/ <p style="text-align: justify;">KCSN is happy to be presenting this line-up on Nov. 20 at Loaded in Hollywood.
