Fresh Buzz! Tino Drima drops LP "Her Kind of Man", plays Verdi Club 9/22

"Tino Drima is a cauldron of then, now, and what will be" boasts the band's profile. Though that may be a lofty statement for an artist to make, there's no denying that Tino Drima has the uncanny ability to effortlessly wade through multiple styles, feels, and time periods with their music. Frontman Gregory DiMartino's crooning vocals are as enchanting as they are distant, and the band's instrumentals manage to pull off both a laid-back effortlessness, and driving, visceral rock 'n' roll. The band's new album dropping 9/22, Her Kind of Man, is a hearty mix of lax, cool-kid ballads and borderline-experimental doo-wop anthems that leave us scrambling trying to choose a favorite. Listen to Tino Drima streaming below and catch the band live at the Verdi Club 9/22.-Olivia Sisinni

Dark Satellite's chilling post hardcore

We have an intriguing two-song demo to share with you guys released back in April from SF's Dark Satellite. The post-rock demo begins with a brilliant incorporation of Charlie Chaplin's iconic speech from The Great Dictator, fusing it with hardcore noise-rock buildup, ultimately unleashing into "La Valette", a mostly instrumental track with screechy math and post-hardcore influences. Check out the band's work below and keep an eye out for upcoming shows. The band recently also unveiled a video for track "A Star is Dying" - watch it here.- Pearse Devlin

New Spell have an upcoming show in the Bay Area at Bottom Of The Hill this September 24th. The SF band's most recent EP is a darkwave project with heavy synth and dream pop sounds overtaken by haunting atmospheres, giving it a dreery presence throughout.

Sore Thumb brings sunny, surfy rock to Feral on 9.22

To call the Bay Area’s Sore Thumb surf rock would be a restrictive oversimplification. While the beginning half of their debut LP An Album By… is straight-up, 60s inspired, reverb-drenched rock, the record moves on from that pretty quickly. A few of the middle tracks, like “No Right, No Wrong” and “Meltdown,” explore darker undertones and move deeper into the territory of alternative rock. However, like a rubber band snapping back into shape, the sunny, surfy rock that Southern California has grown to love returns in “That’s Why” (streaming below) and remains throughout the end of the track list. This LP is also accompanied by a visual album that is streaming on the band’s YouTube. Currently, the LP is available for free download for anyone who attends a show or connects with the band on Facebook. Catch their next live show at Feral in Oakland on September 22nd. - Lilly Milman 





Primitive Heats bring punk romance to SF Scene

Not only do Primitive Hearts have the best band name of the whole SF scene, but they may be the next, great rockabilly power-pop group. Their latest LP, High & Tight, speaks to eternal teen angst but it's done with an air of nostalgic, bad-boy cool. If it was possible to take take your 50's greaser teen-crush and turn him into a sound, you may just get Primitive Hearts. And for all of you buzzkills that somehow get tired of the 12 endlessly fun songs on the album, listen to their split with other punk locals, Pookie & the Poodles. -Allie Miller
