OV WEEKLY: The One Where We All Try To Recover From RSD

Somehow we survived RSD. We hope you did too! Now let's just take it easy for a bit ok?


Monday, April 21st (that's today!)
Mystic Braves Residency @ The Echo!

Tonight Echo Park faves and OV alums Mystic Braves take the stage with their patented blend of garage and psych rock! Formerly known as Blackfeet Braves, these guys have been gaining recognition within LA over the last couple years, and for good reason. The Braves craft groovy, psychedelic jams that tunnel right to pleasure centers in both your brain and your feet. Their 2013 self-titled album was one of our favorite local records of the year and we are super stoked for their newest record Desert Island which comes out later this month! So stop on by The Echo tonight at 8:30 for a kickass night of music courtesy of Mystic Braves. See you there!




Tuesday, April 22nd
RSD Leftovers! Record Club!

Missed out on RSD? Well OV's got your back, cuz we're gonna be stocking some RSD leftovers throughout the week! While some releases are truly sold out, we'll definitely have a few releases that sold out early Saturday morning for you to snag! Check back later this week for a list, but we think you'll be able to find RSD releases from Childish Gambino, Little Dragon, Anamanaguchi & more!

Once you grab those last few RSD releases, why not show 'em off to the world tonight at Record Club? We're gonna be spinning all night long at El Prado and would love to see some of those RSD rarities make an appearance! We know you wanna show your hard-earned wax off, so stop by and jam with us!


Wednesday, April 23rd
FYF Presents OFF! + Cerebral Ballzy @ The Roxy

Get that mid-week frustration out with us tonight when OFF! takes the stage at The Roxy. We're gonna be going at it hard and hope you can join us! We won't say anymore because we're not allowed to talk about OFF! for any longer than one of their songs.




Thursday, April 24th
Last Chance to Pre-Order Wye Oak's Shriek!

Now that RSD is over, we're back to that new release grind (if you can call it a grind), and this week features your last chance to nab Wye Oak's newest album Shriek on limited edition orange vinyl! Early reviews of the Baltimore band's newest have been glowing and we fully expect this LP to be sold out come next Tuesday. So beat the demand and secure your copy of Shriek today in our online store!




Friday, April 25th
Incan Abraham In-Store!

Tonight at 7PM, we've got our homies Incan Abraham throwing down jams up in the loft! Friends since kindergarten, the members of Incan Abraham channel their multifaceted past in their debut LP Tolerance, fusing Lost Boys tribal energy with guitar, synth, and harmony vocal soundscapes that entice and hypnotize. Back in L.A and fresh off the heels of the release of Tolerance (which we totally dug when they were in the shop a few months ago), these awesome guys will be sharing their sound for all to hear tonight at 7PM!



Saturday, April 26th
An In-Store Double Feature: Washing Machines & FIM!

Because we are crazy, we booked two in-stores for tonight and hope you can handle two hours of kickass music tonight at 6PM!

First up, we've got L.A locals Washing Machines tearing up our loft at 6PM! Sounding like a Frankenstein mix of early 90s grunge and the emotive heart of post-punk, these locals have been garnering steady praise for their rough-around-the-edges live shows and unrelenting sonic attack. A perfect way to start any evening.

Following them, FIM will be laying down their experimental art-pop at 7PM! A quartet who came together through a mutual love for terrible horror movies and challenging music, FIM (which means end in Portuguese) released their latest EP Alien Dance Party last July, calling forth comparisons to Ween and Ariel Pink in the same sentence. Which we gotta hear live, because that almost sounds impossible.

So get them ears ready for a night of good music and we'll see you here at 6PM!




Now that we've planned your week, take a nap dude -- you deserve it!

RELEASE PARTY: Courtney Barnett "The Double EP: A Sea Of Split Peas" TONIGHT @ Record Club!

Tonight we've got a super special edition of Record Club coming your way courtesy of Courtney Barnett! As part of the release of her newest double EP A Sea Of Split Peas on Mom + Pop, Courtney will be stopping by Record Club to hang and spin her newest record with us!

After years toiling away as a guitarist in other-people’s bands, Courtney Barnett finally gained the courage to step out as a solo artist less than two years ago. Gathering together a bunch of like minded friends, she recorded two EPs of rambling garage pop and began her auspicious career as a front-woman. Both EPs garnered considerable praise at home and abroad, and Courtney quickly moved from LP credits to article headlines across the likes of Stereogum, Pitchfork and CoS. With the increase in demand for her two EPs, Courtney released both EPs as A Sea Of Split Peas abroad earlier this year and now the time has come for the U.S release via Mom + Pop! We've been itching to get out hands on A Sea Of Split Peas ever since it first graced our ears and absolutely can't wait to hear it at Record Club!

Alongside spinning A Sea Of Split Peas, we'll also have the record on sale and the first 30 purchases will score you a FREE DRINK! So come on down, hang with Courtney, throw us a couple high fives, and get an awesome peek into the world of Courtney Barnett! While you wait, check out Courtney's video for her single "Avant Gardener" below! See you soon!

IN-STORE: Plague Vendor TONIGHT @ 5PM!

Tonight at 5PM we've got Plague Vendor performing in our loft!

Straight out of Whitter, we first heard about these dudes earlier this month and we were so blown away we had to have them perform as part of our OV Birthday Bash. Featuring a raw rock sound replete with driving drums, snarling guitars and infectious bass lines, Plague Vendor got us moving and sweaty real quick. Headed by emotive frontman Brandon Blaine, Plague Vendor has been tearing up local joints in support for their new LP Free To Eat and we were lucky to snag them again after their killer set at our bday.

So come on down to OV tonight at 5PM and see the meteorological event that is a Plague Vendor hurricane! Things are gonna get crazy. While you wait for the chaos, give a listen to Plague Vendor's most recent single "Black Sap Scripture" below!

A New Month of Residencies!

Now that it's April, its time for a brand spanking new Monday residency at The Echo!

This month, Echo Park faves and OV alums Mystic Braves take the stage with their patented blend of garage and psych rock! Formerly known as Blackfeet Braves, these guys have been gaining recognition within LA over the last couple years, and for good reason. The Braves craft groovy, psychedelic jams that tunnel right to pleasure centers in both your brain and your feet. Their 2013 self-titled album was one of our favorite local records of the year and we are super stoked for their newest record Desert Island which comes out later this month! So stop on by The Echo tonight at 8:30 for a kickass night of music courtesy of Mystic Braves. Supporting Mystic Braves are two more OV faves Froth & Adult Books! See you there!

Goat @ Pappy & Harriet's!

If your looking to rock out with OV, look no further than tonight's Goat show at Pappy & Harriet's in Pioneertown! The Swedish band's 2013 LP World Music was one of top LPs of 2013 and we've barely been able to keep their LP stocked in the shop. So when we heard that the band was making a rare CA appearance, we got very very excited and got our bags packed wayy early. So come find us out in the desert tonight -- we'll be the dudes dancing all mystical-like in the back.
