IR: The SoCal Sessions #2 – California Soul
Welcome back for episode #2 of the SoCal Sessions. We’ve got five more great LA based (and related) artists in this new session that might help you conjure up the imagery of a less developed California.
The title of this show, “California Soul”, was coined from a Mother Hips song that reflects on the hardships of grinding out a living making music on the road. The phrase was immediately adopted to label the unique sound of the Hips and the many bands they’ve inspired over their 12+ year tenure. However California Soul embodies more than simply a sound. It’s a lifestyle and culture celebrated in the music halls, on the beaches, and in the mountains across much of the western parts of the United States” – Californiasoul.org
See you earlier than usual next week, right before New Years, for an upbeat electronica session from a handful of angelenos – a perfect opportunity to use those glowsticks that you’ve all unconsciously stashed.
