Where slightly circumspect pop is concerned, Cheerleader has the act nailed down. Their sound is stripped-back and easy, meant for long drives with the windows down as you feel the encroaching fall breezes stream through your hair (or across your head, in some self-referential cases).

We’ve had some pretty major losses in the music community over the course of 2016, with some particularly painful ones in the mix. One of those artists is Prince, whose artistic brilliance and persona will remain ingrained in our collective consciousness so long as we keep spinning his records and periodically screening Purple Rain, which is exactly what happened at the very last Eat|See|Hear of the summer.

Local songstress Luna Shadows has had a massive summer. She released an EP filled with hazy, pop perfection (Summertime) and debuted her live show right here in the city that inspired her West Coast hymns. The Los Angeles singer/writer/producer/you name it shows no signs of stopping as she has now released her debut music video, and it’s for one of my favorite tracks of the summer.

What I like most about Special Force is their altruistic, communal approach to music. It’s not only about the hooks and beautiful melodies, but also about sharing the energy and enjoyment of sound, almost as if part of the goal is to encourage others to be loving and excellent.
