Treasure Island Day 2 Photos and Review: Massive Attack, alt-J, Chet Faker and More

10/20/2014

Sunday at Treasure Island Music Festival was predictably chill. Like years past, Sunday’s lineup of indie rock and downtempo electronic artists served as the perfect “hair of the dog” to Saturday’s cocktail of electronic and hip hop acts. Even the weather mellowed by a cool five degrees. The crowd, far soberer, drifted between sedentary cigarette puffs and stages. With Massive Read More

Interview with Alyssa Robbins, Playing Hotel Utah This Friday Night

10/15/2014

About two years ago, I had the opportunity to meet singer-songwriter Alyssa Robbins at a mutual friend’s house in Washington State. Since then, I have been following her career from afar as she continued to evolve her style in Brooklyn. Recently, Robbins recorded her second album, her first since 2007, entitled Our Time Was Here We Read More

Review: Milky Chance Release Sadneccesary Ahead of Show at Rickshaw Stop

10/14/2014

Milky Chance is one of those acts that appears to come out of nowhere, but immediately makes its presence known. Similar to Gotye, their single “Stolen Dance” just emerges from thin air, and then you hear it everywhere. Recently, I heard it in a cab and at my favorite ramen spot on the same day. Although Read More

10/08/2014

Last night, The Fillmore hosted two fantastic sets from Lake Street Dive and Ages and Ages. We have been excited for this show for several weeks, but I have to admit that as a huge San Francisco Giants fan I was initially not happy to leave a big playoff game and head to the Fillmore. Luckily what I found there Read More

Song of the Day: Mysterious UK Duo, Wonder Wonder With “Shark”

10/07/2014

London-based Wonder Wonder is an enigma. In an age where big name acts are usually paired with a big story about their personal life, trials, or tribulations, this duo decided to try a different approach aimed at trying to let the music speak for itself. The band has no website. No photos or biographical information on their Read More
