Come join us and our friends at Future Sounds, Stranded in Stereo and BMI tomorrow night at 3 Clubs for the December Rumble L.A. Party! It’s the last one of the year and it boasts a seriously solid lineup… San Diego’s Tape Deck Mountain, who has been getting plenty o’ blog love lately, will be making the trek up Highway 5 along with fellow Chargers fans The Drowning Men. Representing L.A., the enamoring All Wrong & the Plans Change will be playing as well as RCRD LBL favorite Evan Voytas. What a way to close out 2009! It’s been a great experience having a hand in presenting the Rumble L.A. parties this past year. We’ve had a lot of fun (sometimes a little too much), witnessed some great performances from artists on the rise and made a lot of new friends. Okay, enough schmaltz, see you tomorrow night!
Rumble L.A. – Thursday, December 10th – 9:00PM – FREE!!!

A list of the first 200+ artists who are confirmed for SXSW 2010 showcases was released yesterday, representing only a small fraction of the total number of artists who will play next year’s festival. Scanning through, the mix is varied and as expected shows a strong international presence. Any early contenders for possible buzz band status on the list? Our clairvoyant tells us to keep an eye on chi-town’s I Fight Dragons, L.A.’s Warpaint and Auckland’s Kingston.
Checkout the full list HERE.
We’re excited to give you a first-look at RM64 Artists Record, a project created in partnership with Propellerhead, makers of the highly-popular music software Reason. Now with the release of Record, their latest innovative recording product, the company has teamed up with RM 64 to launch a campaign promoting their new software with new talent.
The idea was simple; put together a group of hand-picked emerging artists, provide them with the necessary tools, including Propellerhead software and gear from sponsors KRK, Rode, Line 6 and Novation, and document their recording journey in pictures, videos and words. The campaign imparts a unique and raw perspective following the creative processes of a group of talented individuals from different locations, musical backgrounds, styles and aspirations. We look forward to bringing you special updates and exclusives along the way. You can follow all the action at www.rm64artistsrecord.com.
With names perfect for the makings of a Zeppelin song, a new group of bands come off the heels of CMJ causing a bustle of label action. Leading the pack are Seattle’s Lonely Forest and Brooklyn’s Freelance Whales who both have majors and big indies prime to make a move… More pubco’s join the hunt for Texas’ Scorpion Child, whose brand of blues-riffed rock ala the aforementioned ZOSO gods has had labels taking aim as well. And a name you won’t forget and will be hearing a lot more of soon is Portland’s Baby Monster. The electronic-edged duo received recent nods in NME and just released their new single “Ultra Violence and Beethoven” on London’s rapidly rising 50 Bones label (Little Boots, We Have Band, Rogues)… Finally, tonight in L.A. catch Lindsey Ray, who you’ll recognize as the voice behind “Brand New Day,” the Tim Myers-penned tune used in the recent massive Target campaign. Lindsey performs tonight at the Hotel Café at 9:00PM.
