Close to 300,000 Spartans invaded the City of Angels last weekend to witness the Spartan victory at the 100th Rose Bowl. While we weren’t listening to the Drive soundtrack while speeding down Ventura, these songs were played most frequently throughout the week by local stations like the world-famous KROQ. If you weren’t there to experience the Spartan Green that flooded the streets of Southern California, this is a little taste of the good vibrations that the west coast gave off.

1. Thee Oh Sees–Floating Coffin
I pre-ordered this record without even hearing it because, 1. I was pretty fond of the album art and 2. It’s THEE OH SEES. Needless to say I wasn’t disappointed in the slightest. John Dwyer is basically the reason I keep living. He turned 39 this year and is still the master of all that is psych-rock.
Hey everyone! We made it into the New Year successfully! Lets make this year an awesome year for local music. Head out to a show or two, buy some merch from the band down the street, lets keep things going!

What a great year 2013 was for music. At least if you look in the right places. Music for the sake of shock value may have spread across the mainstream, but the Impact is here to quell your agitation with the best new music out there. So here is my list for the Top 10 Albums of 2013
1. A Great Big Pile of Leaves – You’re Always On My Mind
The sophomore release from AGBPOL continues to purport their signature style of nostalgia-based, care-free indie rock. Though they seemed to have dropped the underlying mathy inspiration, they’ve created a very stripped-down, lick-based record that doesn’t stray from what fans crave.
Happy New Year from the Impact!! Tonight Chelbucket took us on a trip back in time to cover her highlights from 2013 with artists such as Smash Mouth, Shaggy, and Led Zeppelin. She also gave our ears a taste of what is to come for 2014: The Crew Cuts, Frank Sinatra and more!
Remember, the best is yet to come!
We Are The Champions – Queen
Roses – Outkast
The Longest Time – Billy Joel
California Love – 2Pac,Roger Troutman, Dr. Dre
Judas Priest – Dissident Aggressor
Kalmah – With Terminal Intensity
Brujeria – Revolución
