Sweet melodies and psych guitar freak outs on Mikal Cronin's debut

Stepping away from the rhythm section of Orange County surf-punk bashers The Moonhearts, Mikal Cronin has emerged with a fully realized, cohesive and beautiful debut self-titled LP, out September 20, 2011 via Chicago's Trouble In Mind.
With long-time friend and collaborator Ty Segall producing, Eric Bauer [Ty Segall, Royal Baths] running the tape machine and guests like Thee Oh Sees' John Dwyer, Mikal blends sweet melodies and chords with chunky, psychedelic guitar freak-outs.
If you've ever wondered what the Beach Boys would sound like if they became pals with the Ramones, Mikal Cronin offers his sonic vision and joins Ty Segall out on the road this summer and fall, including stops at Total Trash Fest and Goner Fest, to share his California fuzz take on gorgeously unexpected psych garage pop.

Los Lonely Boys continue carving out their legend with 4th studio album

After proving themselves one of the most stunning and wonderful musical success stories of the last decade, Los Lonely Boys continue to carve out their legend with their fourth studio album, their first self-produced LP on their own LonelyTone/Playing In Traffic Records, Rockpango.
Supporting this newest release, Los Lonely Boys hit the road to share the utterly unique combination of blues, rock, soul, their Latino heritage and snippets of hip-hop found on Rockpango. For a preview of what to expect, check out the undeniably fun animated video for "16 Monkeys."
Since debuting in 2003 with a multi-chart gold single, selling millions of albums, winning a Grammy, racking up reams of critical praise, opening for the Rolling Stones and playing and recording with such legends as Willie Nelson and Carlos Santana, Rockpango further enforces All Music Guide's assertion that Los Lonely Boys are "one of America's premier rock bands."
