Shrouded UK newcomers Jungle made their LA debut last night at The Echo with local (and March resident band) James Supercave opening. The set was streamlined, soulful and hypnotic and finished perfectly with pure-gold-jammer “Platoon.” Watch the band’s latest video for “Busy Earning” here and check out photos from the show below. Jungle’s 7″ and 12″s –...

Last week we ran contest for this show and for those two lucky winners, what a handsome prize… Photos follow from a great Echo bill comprised of delicate, unlit songstress Chelsea Wolfe, Seattle’s dark, bleak and beaty trio Crypts (feat. Steve from These Arms Are Snakes) and LA no-wave gazers Gothic Tropic. Chelsea Wolfe’s first-ever fully acoustic record,...

Zach Cole Smith’s moody guitar-bouncing project, DIIV, feel like Captured Tracks royalty right now. With their wonderful debut, Oshin out and a solid and practiced touring lineup along for the ride (Devin Ruben Perez, ex-Smith Westerns drummer Colby Hewitt and Andrew Bailey), the band are having quite a good and warranted 2012. The band hit The Echo stage with force (way...

LA-based emotional, gender-bending electronic duo Hecuba have just returned with their second LP, Modern via the label they helped co-found Germ Records (Dreamers, E.S.P.). Modern may take some listens to uncover, swaying from pop-leaning to cold and weird, but what the pair do do immediately and quite well is solidify what they want their image to be. Below is visual...

Fresh off the release of her heavily-buzzed third album, Visions, the Montreal-based electronic-pop gazer Grimes (real name Claire Boucher) played a sold-out crowd at mainstay venue The Echo last Friday. A perfect weekend-starting set, Boucher performed solo alongside a pair of keyboards, other boxes and some heavily hyped-out folks that stood near the back, on stage drinking-...

Celebrating the release of their debut record, Rad Times Xpress IV for Drag City, brand-new outfit Black Bananas brought their soul-skuzzing, dance-oriented garage sound to the Echo for a record-release show last week with the rather good Pink Mountaintops supporting. Formed from the ranks of RTX, the BB project is led by glammer Jennifer Herrema,...

Shabazz Palaces in Red and Black

Seattle’s slow moving, drip hop duo Shabazz Palaces played an introductory set to a crammed-in crowd at The Echo last week here in Smog City in support of their Sub Pop-released longplayer, Black Up- it’s good, but I’m still allowing for it to flower. Rawkblog was there. Grimy Goods too. I was hustling up and down from Check Yo (Drums, IO Echo)...
