Grand Analog - "Mutations" Video, Playin' The Drake 02.23

Grand Analog band leader Odario Williams describes their sound as “A beautiful mess of rap n’ roll, dub and soul.” Personally I find most new hip hop to be hard to listen to but these guys are a true band who have the skill to play instruments, write smart tunes and lay down a bouncin’ beat when that’s what needs to be done. Their latest video “Mutations” takes you through a day in the life of a 14 year old boy as he searches for manhood. This sounds like a classic hip hop tune. The beat is old school and quite honestly its bang on. The De La Soul influence is obvious as it features Posdnuos. Really diggin’ these fellas. They will be heading to SXSW this year. Go see em before they go at The Drake Underground on February 23rd. – Kris Gies





Oakland-based The Heartlights release infectious, surfy garage EP "Oh Dear"

Oakland rockers The Heartlights are all energy on their debut release Oh Dear, a six-track EP with thrashing guitars, fast-paced percussion, and delightfully melodic vocals. Lead vocalist Maggie Aytac has a saccharine voice that layers infectiously over their garage-influenced power pop arrangements to create instant hits like “You’re So Cute (It Hurts)” (streaming below), which comes across as a fuzzier take on classic surf rock. The rest of the EP shows similar influences, combining angst with energy to create a tongue-in-cheek ode to Californiacation. At the moment, their next announced live show is on March 9th at The Octopus Literary Salon in Oakland. - Lilly Milman





Ritual Talk premiere single "More Than I Can Mention" + celebrate release at Union Pool on 2/10

Ritual Talk's newest single "More Than I Can Mention" is downright exciting. From the get-go, the sublime guitar hook is intriguing and has you hanging onto the end of each juicy note. The song builds into an old-school, everything-goes indie rock tune with a dose of soul to keep things groovy. This wall of sound is nothing like you've heard before- it's carefully executed, properly funky, but most importantly: huge. "More Than I Can Mention" is a song you'll want to put on repeat and rock out to, all day. The band plays Union Pool on 2/10 to celebrate the release. -Geena Kloeppel





New Bardo Pond Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Take flight aboard the sonic shuttle of Philly psych-rock stalwarts Bardo Pond, whose latest mission Volume 8 was recently released via Fire Records. Unearthing mindful stillness as one’s surroundings spin further out into the ether, there’s a brooding, eye-of-the-storm circumstance. Engulfing heaviness is shot through with moments of beautiful clarity. Bardo Pond will be touching down on Johnny Brenda’s stage on February 16, where they'll be supported by Honey Radar, Major Stars, and Henry Owings.
