Take Lana Del Rey and Nirvana and put them in a blender. What comes out is a California dream of an 18 year old girl and her high school band, Cherry Glazerr.

I first read about the Los Angeles band Cherry Glazerr in Nylon Magazine, but after a little more reading realized that I’d heard their sound before in Hedi Slimane’s first videos for Yves Saint Laurent. And their runway show. And now I see them daily on my playlists. 

See & listen on BrokeAndBeautiful.com.



My present favorite band, staright outa L.A.; I must have seen these kids half a dozen times this year


The Peach Kings - “Lonely’

Damn this is a great video.  Perfect for the eerily beautiful track.

Five of Five Music Entertainment Talent Search

Hello! This year I’m part of a student run record label called Five of Five Music Entertainment, and right now we are looking for bands or artists to be chosen as our Artist of The Year! Basically a number of artists from the Los Angeles area will submit their presskits on our home website to be considered to be chosen. Then the top two or three will compete by perform live and the best based off of the performance will become the Artist of The Year.

Everything we do for the artist is completely free, and all the content created with Five of Five will belong to them. Five of Five will own nothing. Basically the chosen artist or band will have a team of focused students working towards what ever the artist needs to take them to the next level. 

So if you are a musician in the LA area, please take advantage of this great opportunity! Also if you know of a musician or band let me know!
