INCHES reviews Best Coast, Omar Rodriguez Lopez Group, Lustmord, Bipolar Bear [MP3s]

Apologies for the lack of updates. Perhaps you’ve made a New Year’s resolution to read a wee bit more in 2010? Well, why not get a jump on it now, here, for free. Check out the second latest edition of INCHES, here. As is my weekly wont, you’ll find four fresh slabs of L.A.-relevant vinyl reviewed, photographed* and MP3’d for your audio-visual pleasure.

My pick of the litter?

Best Coast, 'When I'm With You'

INCHES reviews Lambo, The Marshmallow Ghosts (members of BMSR, Appleseed Cast), Bipolar Bear, and The Pink Noise (MP3s)

The latest edition of INCHES is up! Click here to read reviews of records by Lambo (AutoTune funk on Stones Throw), The Marshmallow Ghosts (featuring members of Black Moth Super Rainbow and The Appleseed Cast), The Pink Noise (Canuck punk on Kill Shaman Records), and Bipolar Bear (local crew whose latest is on Mexican Summer). Good, free tunes. Good, free photos. Good, free words. You’ll like it. Check out older installments here.

Lambo's "Computer Bagel"

INCHES002: More local revolutions w/ Mayer Hawthorne, Frankel, Vibes, Polyamorous, more

INCHES002 is up! The second installation continues on the same L.A.-centric path as the first, exploring five additional releases from five different local artists on five different nearby independent labels (with free MP3s). The releases are chosen with an eye toward both content and outward packaging.

This week’s gold medal-winner:

Mayer Hawthorne, Just Aint Gonna Work Out

Mayer Hawthorne, "Just Ain't Gonna Work Out"

Featured in INCHES002: Mayer Hawthorne (Stones Throw), Vibes (Not Not Fun), Frankel (Autumn Tone), The Polyamorous Affair (Manimal Vinyl), and Bipolar Bear (olFactory). Again, future installments will include reviews, interviews, guest bloggers, outings, and more.
