July 2014
Baked
"'Debt'
"
mp3

Last year Baked came out with a tape called S/T Cassette.  Two songs short, it's enough to see where the band is coming from; they're not afraid to blur themselves, letting the sounds melt into landscape jams.  On Debt, their debut off Exploding in Sound, Baked is still melting, but it's a much more guided flow.  The album mixes high velocities with the turned down mellow feels that Baked just seems to ooze from every orifice.   R.J. Gordon's vocals take a back seat under a wash of reverb, sitting just below the pop driven melodies that surround him.  "Mick Jagger" especially is a stunner, where Yoni David's drumming drives the tune as the rest of the sounds float in zero gravity.  There's something unobtainably attractive about this band's sound, whether it's because they remind us of England's long lost Wu Lyf, or because they channel Bedhead at the same time. - Jake Saunders

​Slowness Dead Leaf Echo Cruel Summe​r and​ Moonbeams Perform TONIGHT at Hemlock Tavern

The bi-coastal shoegaze band, Slowness has always made amazing ethereal music, and they will be accompanied by the hardworking, brilliant NYC based shoegaze band, Dead Leaf Echo tonight at Hemlock Tavern! The bill will be rounded out by Moonbeams who are a noise psych pop band currently based in San Francisco from San Diego. Cruel Summer is also a psych dream pop band whose music is steamy and will blend well with the entire line up.

We love it when shows can have a great mix of east coast and west coast bands. Don't miss this opportunity to hear some music that you wouldn't otherwise be able to experience unless you were 3,000 miles east!

​This show is going to be a lovely washed out, psyched out night of music. We recommend you expend some time and energy to make it out.​


Buzzmutt Celebrates Album Release at Hemlock Tavern TONIGHT

San Francisco based experimental post punk band, Buzzmutt has released a new album entitled, Strange Planes of Surveillance. Their music is loud and untamed, but their song's composition is structurally coherent. Buzzmutt's  brand of noise music has a danceable element that is really fun but doesn't take away from their punk integrity.

If you're into Sonic Youth and New Order, you'll be into Buzzmutt. They certainly standout and you should check out their show and pick up an album just to make sure you keep your music taste diverse.

Head out to the Hemlock Tavern TONIGHT to see Buzzmutt share a bill with Wild Pack of Canaries and The Shape.

John Murry Plays Two Nights at Amnesia

Influential folk musician, John Murry will be playing Amnesia on September 14th and September 21st. This Mississippi transplant is now residing in Oakland and we're enthusiastic about him bringing his eerie presence and music that sits like a wax coating on your psyche to the Bay Area.

His music resonates and encapsulates musical resemblances to Townes Van Zandt, Pete Yorn and Tom Petty, but Murry's music a bit more modern and experimental, bringing his dark folk lyrics animation and color.

Make sure you check out his two performances at Amnesia. His music has been featured on the popular television show, Sons of Anarchy...but that's not why you should see him live. Take a listen to his recordings and you'll be convinced. -je

​Lords of Sealand Release New Album + Play Benefit Show - 9/20

​San Francisco based avant indie rock band Lords of Sealand are releasing a new album entitled, Found Fiction. You can catch their live performance and album release celebration at El Rio on September 20th.

Their new single, Never Disappoint exudes elements of progressive and reggae musical styles. Lords of Sealand's sound is very unique and the music sucks you in by grabbing your ears with their sensual instrumentation and haunting lyrics and vocal performances.

The bill for their album release show will include Hoxton Mob and Van Damnit, while doubling as a benefit event for Home Away from Homelessness, a non-profit that provides after school care for children of homeless families. Do it for the kids! Don't miss this show. Bands who help people are cool.
