Every month I listen to the majority of bands/singers/musicians/artists who are playing in Los Angeles. This month’s playlist is long, but believe it or not it, this is the narrowed down version. There are many different genres included and most of the selections are recent works.
This month I’ve also included a song from one of the original post punk bands, Gang of Four (founded in 1976), who are currently on tour.
