[Lolipop Records; 2012]
This is the best band in Los Angeles. If you are looking for some sick garage rock and a bassist with the craziest legs, CORNERS is your band. They just put out their cassette EP "Beyond Way" on Lollipop Records and it kills. My favorite song is "Sometimes." No wait, "The Greatest" is my favorite. "Give me a reason" is really good too. Dude, "The Grave." That song is tight. Corners have been playing all over the city lately, so go see them and tell em that Bennett says sup.

Top Ten Hits of the End of The World
Brooklyn's Prince Rama is so rad. They put out this killer record last year called "Top Ten Hits of the End of the World" and it is a fictional compilation record of 10 different pop bands that died during the apocalypse. On each track, the band takes on the different name and persona - including that of a Hindi pop act or a dessert psych group. The ghosts of these bands have been channeled to perform on the new record and as ghosts, I think they do a pretty good job at it.

Ali Baba 7"
This song is such an awesome jam, Gap dream definitely knows how to turn a droning, psychedelic garage rock song into a catchy sing along. They were probably the best band of the day at our recent KXLU CMJ showcase this past week in New York City at the Cake Shop. If you like King Tuff or Ty Segall but want something with a more relaxed, but still entertaining vibe, make sure to check these guys out, they are definitely on the rise.

7" Split EP
Two different bands with intertwining members make this split dynamic and copacetic. Coming from San Antonio Texas and supporting their own tour off their record label AYEAYEAYE, these kids left an impression at KXLU with their dope throwback tunes. They overdrive their tones with tape-like saturation and sing melodies familiar to great 60’s garage bands like Los Saicos and The Sonics. Each band has their own full length with better songs on cassette so there’s plenty to dig your teeth into.
