Shannon & The Clams @ The Echoplex - 3/20/2014
Snapped a few shots of Shannon & The Clams the same night as Nobunny and Hunx. Great lineup this was and if you haven’t heard of these guys then you should definitely check them out.
They ebb and flow so nicely on the vocals that honestly if it wasn’t for one or the other standing at the mic I maybe wouldn’t know who was singing. Great energy between the two on stage too, this fucking dude shreds on guitar. See THEM live and in person! They play LA a lot so get off your ass and catch them next time.
First LA appearance for this awesome funk and soul filled band out of the UK. When I first heard Jungle’s debut EP “The Heat” about 6 or so months ago I wasn’t even sure if this was an actual band. It sort of had that sound like it could have been produced in someone’s bedroom on an MPC, full of samples or self recorded instrumentation. Adding to the mystery is the lack of information about the band or people behind it out on the interwebs, not to mention the cover of the EP being two black men lounging back on a couch decked out in full matching Adidas jumpsuits so you can only really assume that this must be the band. What’s the point of all this? I’m not really sure, and honestly I don’t really care.
To my pleasant surprise and delight, they ended up being a full 5-piece band with the two main front-men (worth mentioning that they are white) as well as the back-up vocalist that you hear in the recordings, live and in person. This show is definitely near the top of the list so far this year. Amazing performance, can’t wait to see them again and to hear a full length from this band.
fuck the police
The latest, most colorful example of the crackdown on subway performers.

So a few years ago I started a set on my Flickr called “Nomads In LA” which is basically just a set of photos featuring random adventures around LA shooting random shit or just things I’m doing and happen to have my camera along, some might call it street photography.
Since I got my X-E2 that pretty much never leaves my shoulder I have started shooting a lot more street shit. This camera is so much more discrete and captures the most aesthetically pleasing photos so instead of just keeping these photos hidden away in my hoard of stuff that I’ll never post I’m going to start doing a weekly or bi-weekly blog post called, you guessed it, “Nomads In LA” that will feature the best of these photos or really just whatever I feel like sharing.
Hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy experiencing these moments and capturing them and the people/places that are a part of them.
Check these guys out of you get a chance. This Los Angeles band has a bit of soul, a bit of rock-n-roll, a bit of pop all in just the right amounts.
They recently released their debut EP called “The Afternoon” and you can listen to it in its entirety over on their Bandcamp.
These photos are from they second Monday of their residency at the Echo last month and although these shows are normally free, this night was special and they stepped aside to allow the UK’s Jungle to jump into the spotlight for their LA debut. Peep them on the next post.
This beat is so fucking dope. One of my favorite sessions from OOTF.
Marian Hill “Lovit” / Out Of Town Films
Back in January, we spent some time with the Philly electropop duo, Marian Hill, at the middle school where the two first met to document two songs in their old auditorium. It was where they got their start, singing and performing in the middle school theatre. Here’s the second release from that day, “Lovit”.

As we get ready for a busy summer, of spreading the sound of tomorrow across the globe, we can’t help but take a step back and bring you all the feel good, forward thinking music you know and love from Soulection. This installment of our White Label series comes from 18 year old London composer, songwriter, guitarist, singer & violinist, Tom Misch. We felt the need to list all of this in the description, because each track is such an audio masterpiece. This one is for everyone, but true fans of Dilla, and smooth, mellow, R&B inspired hip-hop beats, will definitely enjoy this release.
“Basically this EP is me attempting to make instrumentals that will effect people moods in a positive way but also make people think, all produced and recorded by myself in my bedroom. I’ve used a combination of obscure jazz samples but mostly live instrumentation that I’ve recorded, so I recored guitar, violin, bit of vocals and sound effects etc.” -Tom Misch
