Remember last week when Julian Casablancas said that if we lived in an alternate timeline we’d be heralding Ariel Pink instead of Ed Sheeran? Well the proof is in the pizza, baby! Pizzagirl, that is! While pizzagirl is quite distinctly its own unique thing, it’s got a little flavor of Pink’s essence sprinkled on for good measure. Julian must be onto something, because the bizarro timeline in question seems to be bleeding into ours a bit more than usual in celebration of this excellent, amazing, ground-breakingly exciting new release from my new favorite bedroom producer/solo artist, pizza girl. “Coffee Shop” is just the right kind of magical fun weirdness that the freaks of the world united can (and will) get behind. Move over Ed Sheeran! We got a new UK sensation to freak out over.

This is Internet chill for the new age, with driving drums, caffeinated crooning and psuperb psychedelic psongwriting. Get with the program or get off my lawn.



I just so happen to be in a coffee shop while writing about a song called “Coffee Shop.”

It’s the most synchronous thing in my life right now and I couldn’t be more grateful for such an infectious, fun-loving tune to be the one bopping around my head while enjoying a Hot Americano on this cold winter morning. I watch as these people around me have no idea about the power of music in my headphones. If there were only a way to share it with the world. Like a blog…. hmmm…

pizzagirl’s first EP, An Extended Play (how meta!), will be released on Friday April 13th. Get ready!


From deep within the murky depths of the Los Angeles River emerged a creature: 50% raver, 50% comedian, 10% Robotcop. Kurt Kroeber doesn’t own a dog, operates Soundbleed (the world’s only dance party comedy talk show rave), and is down to party with you. Come up some time and say “Hey dude!” But definitely make sure to casually drop the secret Illuminati password.
