Late Night Brew | LA Weekly: Stones Throw Rec.

This week the LA Weekly put out an interesting article about the indie music scene in LA. And of course it explores the obvious area of Silverlake and a few crop of bands that came out of LA, such like the Silversun Pickups, Earlimart, Autolux, Midnight Movies and the sorta defuncted Giant Drag.

Read about them ovah at these two links here:
LA Weekly: LA Music '06- Welcome to Indie Land
LA Weekly- "Weird Scenes Inside the Silver Mine" -A look at the Eastside Indie Rock Scene in LA.

But I'm primarily interested in the Stone Throws Records label story, with the indie Hip Hop scene with such acts as MadLib, Peanut Butter Wolf and Percee P.

I've always been surprised that the Stones throw dudes dont do more shows in seems like the indie bands like the Silversuns and the CWKids are always playing some show, but its all too rare that Madlib plays a solo set...speaking of the Edan since you posted that song...I heard a rumor that Stones Throw wanted to sign him really bad but he didn't want to. I'm not sure why,but its surprising nonetheless.
