    YOUTH LAGOON Two weeks ago, Trevor Powers came through L.A. on the second night of his cross-country tour in support of his band Youth Lagoon, playing to a sold-out crowd at The Echo in Echo Park. Before the show, Trevor walked down two storefronts on Sunset Blvd. and into Origami Vinyl to play a short set of songs in front of a decidedly smaller (yet-still-crazy-packed) house. His debut album The Year in Hibernation landed on Pitchfork’s “Best New Music” and we can easily hear why. Described by Trevor as an outlet for fears and emotions he couldn’t otherwise express, Youth Lagoon’s first record is an at-times haunting, always gorgeous collection of tracks. There was some question among those of us filming as to what his voice would sound like without the reverb and lo-fi production found on the record. Any doubts were completely smashed by what turned to be one of the most searing performances we’ve seen in the loft. Trevor’s got pipes, yo. Just saying.

        We caught up with Hrishikesh Hirway and his band The One AM Radio for a late afternoon jaunt in the Origami Loft. Sanctuary from the stifling summer heat in the loft was handily provided by Hrishikesh's smooth, measured vocals while backing members Scott Leahy and Fontaine Cole dropped a steady dream-like groove on the audience. This week we bring you their performance of "Everyone But You" from their newest record 'Heaven is Attached by a Slender Thread' on Dangerbird Records.

              It seems like the Santa Barbara quintet Gardens & Villa came out of nowhere to give us one of the best debut LPs of the summer, filled top-to-bottom with self-contained soundtracks to fry, frolic and fritter away under the sun to. Their self-titled release makes us feel like kids again, with the requisite injection of enthusiasm and uncertainty that go hand-in-hand. They came into Origami shortly after the release of their new album and surprised the crowd with a stripped-down set. It seemed like they took their LP, dripped some honey on it and let it bake in the sun for a couple hours. Chris Lynch commanded the room with his gliding vocals, imbuing hints of both optimism and pained regret with each verse. A couple dozen faithful fans were waiting before the band went on. The crowd grew as the set progressed, with curious pedestrians filing into the store to exhaust what little standing room was left and to snag the last copies of the G&V LP once they realized "what was up." We are proud to present you with "Black Hills" - the opening track off their album, available now on Secretly Canadian.

                We met up with Adam and Patrick of Brainstorm after one of their many sets at SXSW this year. We chatted over tacos and Lone Stars and found a way to meet up here in LA as they made their way back to Portland. They brought their visceral and playful sense of eclectic indie rock to bear on a balmy Echo Park rooftop just before the rain started to pour. We expected something stripped down due to the circumstances but were blown away by their searing, plugged-in rendition of “Split The Lark”, one of several in a batch of new material. We’re just glad the roof didn’t cave in. Special thanks to Campbell Scarborough for being kind enough to loan us his roof in exchange for the gentlemanly offer of 59¢ tacos and a case of beer.

                  On April 16th, 2011 vinyl aficionados across the country flocked to their local record stores in celebration of Record Store Day to show their support of independent music retailers and hopefully get lucky enough to snag a copy of one of the many limited edition EP's that go on sale in celebration of the event. At Origami Vinyl in Echo Park, RSD was rung in with a series of live performances and the special release of dozens of limited pressings. One of these discs was the 7" of "Gay Thoughts" by LA outfit The Growlers. The band descended onto the loft to play a full set, including the title track off their new 7". The store was packed to the gills, with scores of fans spilling out onto the streets in a mosh pit that only ended after the third encore. Brooks, the Growlers front man, played a dangerous game throughout as he danced close to the edge of stage, ignoring the potential for a two-story drop onto the crowd below. A metaphor for the band's barely-maintained sense of propriety? Or a functioning example of a band that finds its center on the edge of reason?

                      L.A. band The Growlers took Austin by storm this past March for SXSW 2011, playing a series of shows across several days of the festival. They took on bars, clubs, venues, and yes a furniture store to spread their gospel of sleazy garage psych jubilation to the hungered masses. This performance comes as part 1 of 2 in our coverage of the Everloving Records showcase. Check out their performance of “What It Is”, a track off their latest full length offering, available on Everloving Records. Stay tuned for more Growlers goodness from their obscenely packed performance at Origami Vinyl on Record Store Day last month.
