John Safari of OCML reporting live from the Santa Ana riverbed 4/29/17. The homeless in the area encountered a fire that destroyed a few residents tents and belongings. We traveled back to assist as well as asses the situation.
This is a problem that needs a real solution, these people have been forced to move and as you can see they have nowhere else to go.
Lets get this weekend started! A little of a change of pace on this episode. I tend to post fast paced, ear-popping, blood rushing rock on here but this week we take things more slower and chill. Here’s some of the best local songs from great local bands!
5.Moon Ensemble- Future Colours
4.Bird and the War- Bone and Flesh
3.Flying Hand- Remember how
1.DCR Pollock- Try Harder

Where did the name of the EP come from?
What kind of ‘sound’, production wise, did you have in the back of your mind, prior to entering the studio?
Sophia Anita: I personally wanted to make an album with unique/haunting transitions much like Dead Man’s Bones first album. There are a lot of spooky sound clips on our album like children laughing, menacing winds, and my voice interrupting an old radio show reading the sentence that our band name was based off of which is from the Anne Rice book, The Vampire Lestat.
What is one of your favorite tracks on the new EP? and why?
Sophia Anita: Oh man, I love all the tracks! One of my favorites has be ‘A witch shall be born’ because it is a summary of all of the emotions and experiences we have been through as a band.
What encouraged the band to choose the current single for this new EP?
Sophia Anita: The musical drive/power of Pale Skin Latin Girls and the lyrics that reflect how overwhelming life can be/also how we have created such amazing relationships with so many female fronted bands since day 1. PSLG is such a true representation of what NEW EViL is about.
Any overall theme of mood that you’re trying to capture while writing songs?
Does your vision for coming up with music get affected at all by time?
How would you describe the sound of your new CD to any potential new fan?

Sophia Anita: Sleigh Bells, any musical movie Anne Margret has been in, Public Enemy, Wu-Tang clan ,and ALOT of movie/tv soundtracks.
