We've got some bad news. Official word has come down and we have 60 days to be out of pehrspace. While we fully intend to continue recording and hopefully find a new home for The Ocotillo quickly, this does mean the end for us here in our home that pehr has provided. Thank you to everyone who has offered us the honor and pleasure of allowing us to help you make music. It's been more fun and more educational than I think I'll truly be able to grasp for a long time. I feel extremely grateful to all of you. If you're the kind of person who is wondering how to be of some comfort or help to us during what will be a very difficult transition (Good for you! You beautiful, sympathetic super human) we would greatly appreciate it. The absolute best way to do that is to honor us once more with a chance to work for you during these last 60 days here. Come in and make music, let's record! Schedule a session! Let's make some great memories during a sad time. Tell your friends about your experience working with us and stay in touch.

I've been involved with this space in one capacity or another for a long time now and it's provided a place to practice/write/learn/collaborate/and build a life around music. Losing pehrspace is nothing short of a tragedy. Even at times when I felt overwhelmed or confused by the space, and myself in it, I always leaned on pehrspace and it always held me up. I'm hoping some sort of fundraising eventually gets started for Pehr to continue elsewhere and I encourage anyone who doesn't already to go like their page and follow this as it progresses.

We truly can't thank the pehrspace community and the musicians who worked with us at The Ocotillo enough for allowing us the opportunity to work here and make some cool stuff.

French Negative – “Hell” (Stereogum Premiere)

VERY PROUD to say this new French Negative track was made right here at The Ocotillo. #riseoftheschaefer #dawningoftheageofdavids

French Negative is the project of LA-based musician David Schaefer, and "Hell" comes from his forthcoming full-length, Sublimate Or Die. It's a simply constructed but deeply effective track, which approaches the idea of hell as a looming and ever-present state of being. But for a song with a conceit…

🔥 Ocotillo alumni Post Life killing the game. 🔥

Last month, Los Angeles four-piece Post Life put out their debut album, Living Can Wait, a very promising collection of loose and scrappy punk songs, built on toe-tapping rhythms and punctuated by alternating sweet-and-poisonous vocals. Unlike their respective band and album names, which seem to hin…

LISTEN: Dan Bern, 'Merle, Hank, & Johnny'

So excited one of my favorite songs I've heard in the last few years was recorded here at the Ocotillo. Bluegrasssituation.com showing some love and knowing what's up.

Dan Bern is a “songwriter's songwriter” who comes from the Woody Guthrie/Bob Dylan tradition. That legacy is evident in both the craftsmanship and performances that have filled more than 20 releases over the past 20 years. Despite the prolific output and respect in circles that include everyone from…
