L.A.'s VUM create a dawn-to-dusk soundtrack of moody organ tones, dirty drum machine sounds and Jennifer Pearl's deep, ghostly voice on their new album, Psychotropic Jukebox (vinyl out Dec. 3). To celebrate the release of the album, the trio, made up of Christopher Badger and Amoeba alumn Pearl and Scott Spaulding, is playing The Echo in Echo Park every Monday in December. The residency shows are free and start at 8:30 p.m. The shows will run as follows:

12/2 with The Parallelograms, HOTT MT, Conway

12/9 with Lo-Fang, Globelamp (Member of Foxygen), Galaxy Electric

12/16 with Fang Moon, The Present Moment, Black Mare

12/23 with Death Valley Girls, DJ Mahssa (Mount Analog)

12/30 with Intimatchine, Net Shaker

We caught up with Pearl prior to VUM's residency to talk about their terrific new album.
