About this video
Welcome to the 2012 edition of Rhapsody Radar, our annual survey of 25 up-and-coming artists we love, from hip-hop to indie rock, trad country to stoner metal, Latin pop to EDM. Here's our exclusive video chat with East L.A. surf-punk scuzzballs FIDLAR, who hold forth on the somewhat profane origin of their band name, the vibrant Los Angeles music scene, their biggest influences (The Hives!), and their total lack of an evolutionary strategy. Enjoy.
