Today we get a sneak peak at a new track from San Francisco-based Lungs and Limbs ahead of their official release show next Friday at Hotel Utah.

Song of the Day: ASTR is Back with “It’s Over,” Playing Mezzanine 11/8


Brooklyn-based electronic duo ASTR is back with a new track. Last time I saw these two they were opening for The Knocks at The Independent and I was blown away by the high energy performance from front-woman Zoe Silverman. Perhaps best know for their fantastic and dreamy cover of Drake‘s “Hold On, We’re Going Home,” Read More


Song of the Day: “Gone” by JR JR (FKA Dale Earnhardt JR JR)

Song of the Day: “Waterfalls” By Aussie Electronic Duo Bag Raiders


The long drought is over. Sorry fellow Californians I am referring to the over 3 year long hiatus from new music by Sydney’s DJ and producer duo Bag Raiders, we’re still fucked in the water department. Known for their impossibly happy synth electronic beats, the duo is set to headline Rickshaw Stop on Friday 9/11. Although Read More


Song of the Day – “Pulse” by Shigeto


Yesterday was a great day in my world. Michigan-based artist Shigeto announced a new EP and released the first track, “Pulse.” Starting off as an epilogue to 2013’s No Better Time Than Now, the track carries you from one musical world to another over seven sparsely lush minutes, hinting at Tropicália with its polyrhythms. Shigeto’s music was introduced to me by his Read More


Song of the Day: Outside Land Artists The Revivalists “Keep Going”


Today The Revivalists are pulling back the curtains on their new album Men Amongst Mountains. New Orleans is famous for its music and producing acts with HUGE sound. The Revivalists are no exception, ethereal keys and slide guitar give way to horns that hit you like a wall of sound. Vocalist David Shaw’s soulful, sometimes gravelly voice brings Read More

You should care about Alex Winston’s show @ The Fillmore 6/9


For a few weeks, I’ve been listening to a lot of radio pop music and yearning for substance. Somehow substance (dynamic, nuanced, well-crafted songwriting) has not been one of the defining characteristics of commercially successful pop music for decades. Today, I got the sonic equivalent of a medium-rare, pan-seared filet mignon delivered right to my inbox: Alex Winston‘s “Careless,” Read More

Oakland’s Trails and Ways Releases “Say You Will,” 2nd Single Off Upcoming Album Pathology


I am a big fan of Trails and Ways, a local band that really embraces the diversity we have here in the Bay Area. Their music is infused with South American genres like bossa nova, and exudes the warmth of California sunshine. And you have to love a group where every member including the drummer sings. Today they are Read More
