The Bixby Knolls possess the certain kind of gritty rock 'n' roll swagger that only bands from LA can lay claim to, a studied, self-aware cool that doesn't give a damn what you or anyone else thinks. Since their formation in 2009, they've cut their teeth on hometown shows and tours to Mexico. Now, with the digital release today of their debut LP Near & Undear via El Camino Media and a physical release to follow on February 4th, 2014, The Bixby Knolls are ready to step into a broader spotlight. The album was recorded at the famed Sound Factory Studios in Hollywood and produced by Joe Cadamone (The Icarus Line) and engineered by Greg Gordon (Shooter Jennings, The Dandy Warhols, Oasis). Rolling Stone certainly agrees the band is ready to meet the masses, and are featuring their track "Runnin and Runnin" as today's Daily Download.
