The (Infamous) Eastside L.A. 2013 Midyear Round-up! (part III)

Rademacher, August 2012

It's a mystery what happened to Rademacher, but I hope they ride into L.A. magically around Echo Park Rising time this month for a 'sekrit show'

What started with a small and serene handful of indie bands has become a busy army of multicolored, many-tentacled octopi. Yes, it’s time for the third installment in my four-part Eastside L.A. midyear band round-up. If you’re wondering what Pisces (Sarah Negahdari), Pretty Flowers, Princeton, Radar Brothers, Radars to the Sky, Rademacher, Robert Francis, Sara Radle, Seasons, Sea Wolf and Shadow Shadow Shade have been up to, read on.

From San Antonio, Texas, to L.A.’s Eastside, songwriter, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Sara Radle has been performing since 1996, first in the punk-pop trio Lucy Loves Schroeder, then in The Rentals with ex-Weezer bassist Matt Sharp (who convinced her to move out to Los Angeles). After releasing an EP and going on a world tour, she left The Rentals to join up with her current band, Walking Sleep (formerly known as The Flying Tourbillon Orchestra).

Throughout those years, she’s also had a solo career. In February, she released her fifth album, Same Sun Shines, on which she plays guitars, drums, piano, and violin, as well as doing all the engineering and mixing herself. It was released on Jeez Louise Records, her own label. On the plucky and proud “The Pins,” she sings “I’ll do this without you.” Indeed. The result? Vibrant and poppy with a ’60s girl group vibe, and some delicately pretty, sad and sweet pop ballads. Of special note, the song “Still Here,” a chilling matter-of-fact contemplation of suicide, and a cover of “Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys” sung as a duet with Mary Lou Lord.
