[hot off the press] Y LUV//Keep It Rollin

Today the tastemaker indie/electronic blog (and one of my personal favorites) Earmilk premiered the brand new single from Y LUV, “Keep It Rollin’.”  More electronic-leaning that most of their previous tracks, Y LUV mixes their usual genre-crossing with a party vibe that’s bound to get you moving. To listen, download, and read more about the song, head to earmilk.com.

“Keep It Rollin'” is the second of two new singles from Y LUV this November.  The first, “Earthquakes,” premiered earlier this month on the blog Blahblahblahscience. These singles follow their celebrated EP, How Chill Can You Let Go, released earlier this year.

With both singles, Y LUV creates indie-pop fused with an amalgamation of psychedelic rock, spine-chilling harmonies, explosive beats and aggressive guitar riffs, conjuring comparisons from Bloc Party and The Killers to Kings of Leon and Arctic Monkeys. As you can see with the diversity of these two tracks, they shine when drawing upon a vast array of inspirations and not limiting themselves to a specific genre, while still producing a cohesive sound. [source: planetary group]

If any of you LA locals want to catch ’em live, you’re in luck, Y LUV will perform on December 7th at Silverlake Lounge.

LA’s own Light FM will be bringing their energetic synth-rock to the Silverlake Lounge for a December residency starting on Monday, December 15th.  These are free shows, so no excuses!

This indie-rock quartet recently wrapped a tour opening for Smashing Pumpkins in promotion of their latest full-length album Buzz Kill City, which was released this past October through Moonboot Records. In addition, the group performed at KROQ’s Lobsterfest 2011 and headlined shows at Subterranean in Chicago, Hollywood’s The Roxy Theater and San Francisco’s Bottom of the Hill.

Front-man Josiah Mazzaschi relocated from Chicago to Los Angeles several years ago, founding his own studio The Cave and working as a studio engineer and producer with artists such as Built to Spill, William Reid (Jesus and Mary Chain), Rilo Kiley, and Money Mark. Upon releasing their breakthrough album Let There Be Light FM, the group has also performed with The National, Ra Ra Riot, Earlimart, Billy Corgan, and Grandaddy. Now they’re back in their hometown of Los Angeles to play a Monday-night residency and we hope you’ll come out and join us at the Silverlake Lounge for a string of impressive (free) shows.
