The LA Music Blogcast is good for many things, David Fisch’s Randy Newman impression chief among them, of course. However, the number of sweet LA bands I’ve discovered as a result of the show rates a close second on the list.

Last week’s guests, ethereal rockers Kiven, fired off a couple of killer live performances and talked with Mikiel and David about their upcoming debut album and its release party tonight at Club Los Globos in Silverlake.

Want to get familiar? As is so often the case, their kick-ass performance on the Blogcast was enough to make a fan out of me. Check it out below starting off at around the 34-minute mark.

Kiven will play shows in San Francisco, Fullerton, San Diego, and a few other western cities before wrapping up at SXSW in March. Beat your know-it-all friends to the punch and discover Kiven ahead of the zeitgeist.
