Diving into Radiohead’s ‘Moon Shaped Pool’

Radiohead released their achingly beautiful ninth LP, A Moon Shaped Pool today, May 8th, 2016. No doubt drawing on the disintegration of his 23 year relationship with Rachel Owen, Thom Yorke’s college sweetheart and wife, Pool is replete with moments of pure heartbreak, loneliness and emotional despair in its blunt exploration of human intimacy, a theme […]

Review: Masters of Sex – Season 1

So I’m finally marathoning the Masters of Sex show, after watching the pilot last fall. IDK, I think Virginia would’ve had a lot more ish to deal with from society at large being that ‘independent’ back then, particularly sexually (I mean honestly, I know plenty of women who still do, and none that don’t, even […]

Review: Capsula with Os Mutantes at the Troubadour – May 2, 2013

As Your Girl In Music is as much a product of David Bowie’s 80’s cinematic triumph that is Labyrinth as she is the lace-and-leather rock scene that ran rampant in that same era, her curiosity was piqued at the unexpected but more than welcome discovery of the Spain-by-way-of-the-Argentine trio Capsula. At first glance and listen, […]

Kirk House Brought Sexy Back to On The Rox

West Hollywood’s Sunset Strip has long tradition as a legendary scene in Rock and Roll history. From the House of Blues to the Whiskey A Go Go, the Viper Room to the Roxy, the musically inclined, young and old, hip and square, crowd into clubs, spilling out onto the streets and drink the noise kool-aid. […]

New Music Spotlight: Mariee Sioux

Few albums embody the folksy, ethereal essence of a golden state songstress so well as Gift for the End, the sophomore offering from California’s own Mariee Sioux. Recorded in the summer of 2011 at Placerville’s Moonsoon Studios and Nevada City’s Sun Dial studios, the new song-cycle breathes as easily and resonates as warmly as 2007’s […]

i <3 Nouela's New Noise

Your Girl In Music cannot get over the new noise echoing in her ear drums. The culprit? Nouela, the half-Korean, half-Norwegian spirited songstress ‘from’ Seattle (by way of Korea) who is poised to finally revolutionize Indie Girl Rock in the early 2010′s. This is no case of hyperbole or exaggeration. Listen for yourself, feel that […]

Review: The Hang at Genghis Cohen – 04.13.2012

Some 150 miles away, in the desert, many an Angeleno’s teeth chattered on the soggy polo grounds during the Black Keys headlining set at opening day of the 2012 Coachella Music & Arts Festival, weekend one. Back here in LA however, those of us still in the empty and rain-washed city crowded into the intimate […]

Clark Graham at Hotel Cafe – 3.20.12

Almost one month to the day after his debut in the venue, British Columbia native and LA transplant singer-songwriter Clark Graham did the near impossible and filled the house at 7 pm on a Tuesday evening at Hollywood’s Hotel Cafe. Then, for a brief interlude, time stood still and Clark wove his melodic spell over […]

Album Review: Sparkadia – The Great Impression

Sparkadia is the project and musical vision of alternative pop musician and lyrical mastermind Alexander Burnett. The band formed in Sydney in 2004 and were originally known as The Spark. The brainchild of Alex Burnett (vocals, guitar) and Dave Hall (drums), Sparkadia became a reality with the addition of Nick Rabone (bass) and Josephine Ayling […]

Album Review: Brandon Schott – 13 Satellites

Do you remember the first album you listened to that truly allowed you to lose yourself in the moment and the music – that you could get thoroughly lost in, but was as familiar as your own snuggly and comfy skin? That, my friends is 13 Satellites, the 4th full length album from LA artist […]
