Considered a revered epicenter of fine art, the well-to-do city of Laguna Beach isn't known as a bastion of new music discovery (unless you're looking for surf rock or reggae à la Sublime). Grant Owens--a disc jockey at member-supported KX-FM 93.5--is trying to change that. For the past six months, he has faithfully flipped on his studio mic every Friday at 9 p.m. to host the recently expanded show We Found New Music. The concept of the now-two-hour show is as simple as its name: During each episode, Owens plays the newest releases and features live sets from subterranean indie, pop and electronic gems just begging to be discovered.
