Great Northern | East of Wilton

I’m outnumbered by the West of Lincoln posse at G Living, and when it comes to commuting – sure, cycling to work beats bumper to bumper traffic. But when it comes to music, being East of Wilton (self-coined, you like?) literally rocks. Silverlake and its surrounds is the epicenter of the L.A. music scene — home to cool bands and artists like Silversun Pickups, Lavender Diamond, not to mention Elliott Smith. East of Wilton is where it’s at to catch a live gig any night of the week. Not to mention the annual Sunset Junction festival.

We were all utterly spoiled by Great Northern’s performance in our kitchen studio this week. I mean, when do you get a slice of Spaceland in your own space? Our private concert consisted of two melodic tracks from their Trading Twilight for Daylight album, “Just A Dream” and “Home”, which is getting massive airplay on KCRW and Indie 103.1 FM.

So, why wasn’t I surprised to learn that the two founding members — Rachel Stolte and Solon Bixler — live a mere stone’s throw from maison Backhouse in Los Feliz. But then again, where else would a cool musician live?
