New "What's In My Bag?" Episode with K.Flay

Posted by Amoebite, August 29, 2017 01:05pm | Post a Comment

K.Flay What's In My Bag? Amoeba Music

Alt-pop/hip-hop artist K.Flay visited Amoeba Hollywood recently to perform songs from her new album, Every Where is Some Where. While she was here, she grabbed a few records by some of her favorite bands and chatted with us about getting over her fear of heavy metal. Pulling out Metallica, the self-titled, fifth, and best-selling album for the legendary heavy metal band, K.Flay attributed her recent interest in heavy music to playing on the Warp Tour. "I realized there's so much cool, complex stuff that's part of metal."

K.Flay is the stage name of genre-hopping American songwriter and vocalist Kristine Meredith Flaherty. She began writing music in 2003, when she enrolled at Stanford University. Her early work was a response to the "simplistic, misogynistic, and formulaic" rap songs played on the radio. She released a mixtape called Suburban Rap Queen in 2005 and then began performing live.

K.Flay Every Where Is Some WhereAfter a string of self-released EPs and mixtapes, K.Flay signed to RCA in 2012, releasing two EPs for the label: 2012's Eyes Shut (featuring production from The Prodigy's Liam Howlett) and 2013's What If It Is. After leaving RCA, she crowdfunded 2014's Life As a Dog, which reached number 14 on the Billboard Rap Albums chart and number 2 on the Heatseekers chart. In 2015, she collaborated with Louis the Child on their track "It's Strange," which peaked at number 38 on the Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart and received extra attention after it was praised by Taylor Swift. In 2016, K.Flay signed to Interscope subsidiary Night Street Records for the release of her EP Crush Me. In spring 2017, she released her second full-length, Every Where Is Some Where.

New Green Room Session with Klangstof at Amoeba Hollywood

Posted by Amoebite, August 24, 2017 12:17pm | Post a Comment

Klangstof Green Room Session at Amoeba Hollywood

We were excited to welcome Dutch indie band Klangstof for an intimate Green Room Session at Amoeba Hollywood recently. The band released their debut album, Close Eyes To Exit, in October 2016 and went on to open for The Flaming Lips at The Theatre at Ace Hotel in downtown LA and earn the distinction of being the first Dutch band to play in front of Coachella's massive crowds.

Klangstof Close Eyes To Exit Amoeba Music

During their session at Amoeba, the quartet executed their dynamic sound and showcased their talent for both atmospheric delicacy and heavy vamping. "Hostage" opens their set with a gentle, grooving intro propelled by a subtle electronic beat and synth. Soon, with a Chris Martin-esque ethereal "ooh," lead singer Koen van de Wardt signals a more definite groove with the band's full instrumentation. Up next, "Seasons," featuring some angular but slinky bass licks and funky interplay between the band members. The session closes with the tonal morphing "Amansworld." Fueled by a pensive energy, and a slightly disjointed rhythm, the song alternates between fragility and dissonance until finally building to a wailing climax of high-register guitar soling and sudden stops and starts.

Slowly, Fantano accumulated views and likes on his online channel, which eventually resulted in a partnership with YouTube. By the end of 2010, he had accrued 10,000 subscribers. By the end of 2011, he had 50,000.

Today, The Needle Drop counts over one million subscribers. At the time of writing, some of Fantano's most-viewed videos include his reviews of Kanye West's Life of PabloKendrick Lamar's DAMN., and To Pimp a Butterfly. His reviews sometimes feature fellow music critics, his wife, and his alter ego Cal Chuchesta. He has been profiled in The Guardian, spoken on a SXSW panel, and received the Beyond the Blog award at the MTV O Music Awards.
