    With Guns N' Roses, No Doubt, and many others getting their start on our local soil, L.A.'s music history is hard to beat. And, the latest crop of SoCal bands proves the best may still be yet to come.

    From a brother-sister duo that manages to sound both soulful and demure, to a female folk singer whom we can only describe as Harry Nilsson's pulse mixed with Jenny Lewis' punch, each of these seven groups boasts a style entirely unique, distinct, and, without a doubt, highly addictive.
