Album Review
Consisting of three sections, Long Form Live 1 moves from, mellow and exploratory chord structures to more energetic and complex themes. The first track “Searching/Chant/Rise” is impressive in its movement and curiousness as it moves from an introduction, into a complex motif. I personally enjoyed the middle section of the record ”Possibilities Lost/Possibilities Gained” and...

San Francisco’s Bourbon Therapy has released a three song EP that has emerged from the pandemic like many things; broken down and simplified from last year. As I have noticed in my own life, this isn’t such a bad thing.

After listening to Franck’s new album Symphoney, I really understood what he is trying to do with his music. It really took me out of the world. Each song or part, in this album’s case, really takes you to a different realm which is a super powerful thing for music to do.

The Treacherous French's latest record, "Snapshots" is a rock 'n' roll Spaghetti Western born in the misty streets of San Francisco. Cara Madden, Charlie Kaupp, Phil Bergeron, and Olivier René have a distinctive knack for poignant lyrics, lilting melodies, and aggressive instrumental sounds that, when combined, evoke the best of folk-punk, Celtic rock, and Americana.

The hounds are out the gate in the California Bay Area rock scene- and it seems, for Dogs That Bite drummer Sam Gagliardi and fiancee/singer/bassist Joey Zamjahn, that there are no signs of getting down.

If you're hooked like I am, check out Nick's newest single "This Is Gonna Happen," to released today, Friday, November 1st. Face-melting chorusing bass synths, space-y extragalactic lead lines, and Nick's now-patented driving, relentless octave'd lead vocals, joined by lush dreamy harmonies from musical partner Katrina Bushnell...this is Nick's best work yet. It's the ultimate...

Enter Necking - Vancouver B.C.'s own quartet slice of girl-punk pie. With the emergence of their first full-length release and subsequent west-coast tour, guitarist Nada Hayek, drummer Melissa Kuipers, bassist Sonya R, and vocal shredder Hannah Karren, take on the year with nothing short of an unassuming hostile takeover.

Overall, the EP is a great introduction to Beebout's sound and serves to showcase his many diverse talents, both musically and lyrically.

This is an album worth listening to multiple times. I honestly did not like it at all on first listen. What are they after? But like most works that seek to break down our sense of artistic boundaries and genres, we often are shocked before we are awed.

Never seen Steve in concert? It’s hard to summarize him! His Facebook and Spotify carry very few details except for a few humorous one-word reviews from supposed attendees. He wears a red velvet blazer with a signature pink ascot tucked over the top and dark round John Lennon sunglasses. His live music is a melange...

Those of you who’ve never met me know that I’m a silent but deadly advocate/lover/evangelist of electronic music in the San Francisco Bay Area. It’s a little hard down in the amateur ranks of Bay Area music to push electropop, livetronica, and all things DJ-based or synth-y or drum-pad-tacular. Up at the top in big...
