    L.A. Takedown - Live at dublab (06.30.18)

    On their new album II, L.A. Takedown align the moody grandeur of a film score with the pure melodicism of pop. Led by Los Angeles-based composer/multi-instrumentalist Aaron M. Olson, the seven-piece band delivers a guitar-driven take on synth-pop that’s inspired its own genre. “Bjorn Copeland of Black Dice once described L.A. Takedown to me as ‘Baywatch Krautrock,’” Olson recalls. “I found myself saying, ‘Well, you know…it’s not not that—works for me!” Still, despite any association with oceanic hedonism, II ultimately leaves it to the listener to dream up their own imaginary movie for each beautifully sprawling track to live in.

    Triorganico – Live At Dublab (10.16.09)

    Enjoy a live session from our past series at KPFK! We first heard of Triorganico thanks to the forward thinking folks at Now-Again who released their album Convivencia. After multiple listens we were sure this was a revived archival rarity from a mysterious bunch of Brasilian musicians recorded circa ’67. We were thrilled to learn that these cats were making this wonderful music now and right around the corner so we invited them in for a session. The resulting recording captures the three musicians beautifully boiling Bossanova down to its essence. They reach complex climaxes from core elements masterfully combined. They reflect wide ranges of emotion and tone while channeling the vibes of composers such as Hermeto Pascoal whose songs reflect shades within us all.
