Song Of The Day


SONG OF THE DAY: David Bowie blesses us with creepy new music


Have you seen this? David Bowie is putting out a new album, Blackstar (due out January 8), and released this nearly 10-minute long short film a few days ago as the first single. If this video is any indication of what’s to come, we are no doubt in for a sweeping and cinematic saga ripe with genre-defying Read More


SONG OF THE DAY: “Glory Days” by 1955


Check out this video from Bay Area band 1955, weaving a tight rock n roll sound that throws back (and sideways) to Nick Cave, The Strokes, The Black Keys and even some new wave vibes. The video cultivates the song’s wicked hook and plays out in vivid Palm Springs detail the irony of the song. Where at first it seems Read More


SONG OF THE DAY: Foxtails Brigade inject ghosts into Joanna Newsom’s “Book of Right On”


If you know local band Foxtails Brigade (OIM Records) — whose career got a boost recently when their video for “Far Away And Long Ago” won the a Best Music Video Award at the Atlanta Underground Film Festival — you know that they have an uncanny ability to make creepy sound beautiful. Their cover of Joanna Read More

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)


There is a lot going on so far in 2015 for Detroit’s Josh Epstein and Daniel Zott. This summer they made the big decision to chop down their name from Dale Earnhardt JR JR to just JR JR. They will test the new name for the San Francisco audience October 9th at Great American Music Read More

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
