Song Premiere: Growwler - Long Hair, Short Wits

The exuberant band, Growwler is celebrating their album release today. We wrote about it here. We're honored to be able to share a song from their upcoming single, Long Hair, Short Wits. This A side title track is a charming acoustic track that has style and character, melding folk and college indie rock together in a talented and unassuming manner.

I know that combination sounds odd, but Growwler makes it work and owns their musical style effortlessly. Please take the time to enjoy Long Hair, Short Wits and join Growwler, Giggle Party and Taxes at Public Works TONIGHT to celebrate this single's release!! Support hardworking, local, emerging bands. We'll say it over and over, cus we love what they do. -je


SF Band to Watch: C A T H E D R A L S

Experimental electronic duo, C A T H E D R A L S is definitely a Bay Area based band to pay attention to. With their eerie twist on mainstream indie music, this band creates dark and artistic soundscapes that are coated with pristine female vocal layering and powerful instrumental climaxes.

C A T H E D R A L S is drawing a lot of attention and conveys a similar sound to Lana Del Rey, but this duo is a lot more thoughtful and sincere with their compositions. Once you turn on their latest track, Harlem, it will be hard to ignore the quality of the song, and the heartfelt effort that pulses through every note of the band's music.


Growwler Celebrates Single Release at Public Works with Giggle Party and Taxes - 5/29

San Francisco based art rock indie band, Growwler will be celebrating the release of their upcoming single, Long Hair, Short Wits, with an event at Public Works in the Mission District on Thursday, May 29th. Long Hair, Short Wits is a two track alt indie folk single that will invigorate your senses.

Rounding out the bill will be two other San Francisco based musical outfits, Giggle Party and Taxes. Public Works will be hosting a solid line up of alternative art rock, and if you're looking to go to a show that confidently sits on the outskirts of SF's usual garage indie line ups, you should attend this event. We're always into shows that are a little different and bands who throw unique events. 

Come party and celebrate with a great band who is going to release a cool single, which you can attain digitally the day of the show. -je


New Music Video: Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah - American Flags

The San Francisco based psych americana band, Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah have released a new music video for their single, American Flags. This hazy folk rock - americana track gives a serious nod to the musical aesthetics of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young but Gallagher’s voice upholds a particularly recognizable nod to Neil Young.

The lyrics are a bit mysterious, making it unclear in regards to if the song is actually as patriotic as the title implies. Nonetheless, the video is shot beautifully, and displays breathtaking panoramic views of the band and the American (Californian) countryside. The video also highlights all of the band member's physical attributes, as the American Flags video is chock full of man beauty. There’s nothing but bootcut jeans, long hair, cowboy boots and tank tops, and it’s pretty great.

You can see Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah perform live at the Not Dead Yet Fest at thee Parkside on June 7th. Do your best to support this great, hardworking local band in all their endeavors. -je

New Music Premiere: WAG - Shed

The new San Francisco based heavy indie rock band, WAG has released an impressive single entitled, Shed. This band of young and enthusiastic musicians has really stepped their game up over the last few months, and this new single proves that they are a band to watch. With this track's spot on tonal, genre and time signature changes, the band shows some clean and daring compositional talent.

Shed starts off as an alt folk track, but quickly changes into a heavy indie rock song, and morphing one more time into a hard rock (almost metal) climax. With simple, but very personal lyrics, the song makes a strong statement without having to push the envelope. We're into it. You should be too.

Recorded at Tiny Telephone and produced by Brandon Eggleston (Modest Mouse / tUne-yArdS / Swans ), this song is the last track off of their upcoming debut LP, No Worries, which will be released both online and on cassette through the Los Angeles based record label, DRrecords. -je
