LOS ANGELES ALTERNATIVE RADIO SUPPORTING BABY BANDS - L.A.-based TALENTfilter band Iglu & Hartly, who we first reported on in early 2008 (and have since signed with Mercury in the UK and Universal Republic in the U.S.), have their first single, "In This City" officially added into regular rotation on L.A. Alt-outlet KROQ. As there is no 'official' add date set, this is a huge score - and will more than likely make the Uni Republic folks rush the single to the rest of the Alternative radio panel. Woo hoo!

Indie 103-1 Los Angeles has been heavily supporting Brooklyn-based Amazing Baby as of late. Their song "Head Dress" is in a solid all-daypart rotation. While the band's MySpace page states that they're signed to "psilocybe", we know that the announcement of a major label signing is coming shortly.
