Sub Pop Announces Avi Buffalo LP, IAMSOUND Kicks Off “LA Collection” 7-Inch Series

Two bits of exciting news from Los Angeles-area music-makers. The first pertains to Avi Buffalo, who I wrote about for the Weekly back in October (and whose first Sub Pop release made it into INCHES). The second comes from up-and-coming L.A. indie label IAMSOUND and involves a ton of great local artists including Nosaj Thing and Ryan Heffington’s We Are The World. Since I’m in a beastly mood, click the linx for the links.

IAMSOUND Launches 7-inch Series Ft. Nosaj Thing, Fool's Gold, Edward Sharpe...

L.A. Experiential: These Arms Are Snakes, Signals, DD/MM/YYY (also: Breakestra, Mem1)

If you live in/around the L.A. area, seriously consider attending this:

  • Region: Downtown
    Music: These Arms Are Snakes, DD/MM/YYY, Signals
    Vitals: The Smell on Tuesday, October 13
    (details at LA Weekly).

Also, for posterity’s sake, here’s a link to a “lost” preview of last week’s Breakestra record release show (along with text on a Mem1/Swiss minimalist electronics night). Like the above entry, the text was included in the “Rock Picks” post, but not added to the independent entry. I suspect gaslighting. Mark Cetilia of Mem1 was an instrumental help on the “Bend Everything” piece.
