And without further ado, here is the brand new installment of INCHES, my vinyl column for LA Weekly. If you like your boundaries pushed, this is the one for you. German doom-steeped slow jazz, funky electro jams, tribal grooves and avant garde twosomes abound. As do, of course, all the reviews, photos and free MP3s you’ve come to expect.

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?
