We're cramming all six members of the Salt Lake City-based band L'anarchiste into the studio on Wednesday as part of our Local Music series. The music of L'anarchiste began as a one-man project in Rob LeCheminant's basement. As great as his solo-produced debut EP is, it's not much fun to go to a concert to see a guy hit the play button on his computer. So LeCheminant recruited five musicians to help perform his densely structured take on indie folk. We'll talk to L’anarchiste and survey new local bands and albums.

  • Download L'anarchiste's debut self-released EP for free at Bandcamp.com
  • Next Wednesday, May 23, L'anarchiste is opening for the band Here We Go Magic at the Urban Lounge in Salt Lake City. Visit the Urban Lounge's web site for more information.
