Preview: Girls In Suede Album Release w/ Wes Leslie, Of Shape & Sound, and Coast Jumper

Santa Rosa schizophrenic garage rockers Girls in Suede demand your attention. Just when you think you can juggle the music in their debut self-titled album, they’ll toss you another sound. 

Aligning closest with alt rockers like early Chili Peppers and Modest Mouse, the band also nods to jazz, call-and-response, funk, prog, and old-fashioned garage punk. That's a lot of nodding. Listen for angst-ridden screaming choruses, soulful saxophones, and guttural, fuzzed out guitars and basses that make up the album's teenage anthemic colors. 

Girls in Suede will be making their way down to Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco for their album release on Thursday, December 20th. Joining them will be locals Wes Leslie, Of Shape and Sound, and "post-schizoid" rockers Coast Jumper. Get your tickets here


Fresno Fun at Fulton 55: For the Love of Coffee with Coast Jumper, Fierce Creatures, and Strange Vine

If there are any Fresno readers out there, or if any Bay Area folks want to take the trek down CA-99, this is for you. 

Café Corazon is hosting a coffee-themed amalgamation of great cuisine, micro-roasted java, art, film, and music on Saturday, October 13 at Fulton 55. The lineup features nine artists including the lush, kaleidoscopic sounds of Fierce Creatures, the schizoid rock of Oakland’s Coast Jumper, and the fuzzy, bluesy grit of Strange Vine.  

As if the music and coffee weren’t reason enough to attend, the event will hit you right in the altruism by donating some of the proceeds to Relay For Life.

Get the full lineup and some tickets here.



New Video + EP from Wildlife Control

Brothers Neil and Sumul Shah, who live in Brooklyn and San Francisco respectively, were drawn together by their shared love of music to form Wildlife Control, recently producing a video for its debut single, “Analog or Digital,” a brilliant use of music and community controlled by interactive 8-bit technology.

The rhythm of the song correlates with each frame of the video. For example, every sixteenth note of “Analog or Digital,” is rolling by at the same rate as 12 frames per second animation. Confused yet? Watch Wildlife Control’s “Analog or Digital” to understand what the indie-music geeks are talking about.

Wildlife Control will perform songs off its new EP Spin at Brick & Mortar on June 18 joined by another band we love, Coast Jumper.
