Bassist Jack Sundquist and drummer Paul Conroy joined in 2015 and early 2018 respectively to contribute their groovy and heavy rhythms to the quartet’s energetic recorded and live performance. Their sound has been described by Consequence of Sound as “strange mix of joy and existential dread” and their performance has been earned them the label of being “one of San Francisco’s most energetic bands” by The Bay Bridged. Their latest album, “No Waves” was mixed and produced by Aaron Hellam in Oakland, California and released June 6, with videos for singles “Moon” directed by George S. Rosenthal and “Get Away” released shortly after. WEBSITE

Billie Gale, Send
Billie Gale’s atmospheric dream pop explores the beauty borne out of devastating loss. Taking its name from lead singer Beth Garber’s late mother, the band’s enveloping shoegaze textures blanket Garber’s emotive lyrical outcries. Even the rain-soaked sounds of her native Pacific Northwest get a warm bath of reverb and dreamy synth. Sparkling guitars (Adam Wayne, Charmparticles), elastic bass lines (Eric Shawn), and accelerating drum beats (Justin Wayne) create deeply melodic layers, only to pull away and leave a single sound bare, straining to fill the expansive space left behind.

Recorded at Tiny Telephone, San Francisco, CA

Additional Engineering by Ron Guensche at New Future Vintage
Written by Billie Gale

Bam!Bam!, Holy Rollers

Bam!Bam! formed in 2010 after Zola and Chloe met while bartending at The Uptown in Oakland. Zola’s band Make Me had just broken up and it had been a while since Chole had drummed for her old band Stilleta. The two quickly bonded over shots of Fernet, live music, and a mutual affinity for amphibious vehicles. Their early work was inspired mostly by early K records , 80’s Uk indie , and 90’s Riot Grrrl bands played by a guitar and drum duo. Since then they have released two EP’s Let it Go and Golden Haze 2 to kind reviews from Bust, Maximum Rock n’ Roll, and VICE, among others. In this time they have toured the US a bunch and have opened for Calvin Johnson, Shonen Knife, and Scout Niblett, among others. They have also since expanded to include Chloe’s former bandmate, Stiletta bass player Shelly. Nails, the band’s first full-length, was released on August 2nd.  WEBSITE

Brodie ft. Josh Jacobson, Down Like That

Brodie Jenkins (Cathedrals), grew up in sleepy California wine country in an old farmhouse that echoed with folk, jazz and soul. Before her fifteenth birthday, she was signed and touring with her mother and sister in an Americana-steeped family band. Her love of rock n roll took hold, however, in college, where she joined a 5-piece rock band with classmate Grahame Lesh, honing her stage chops opening for Furthur, Phil Lesh & Friends and Jackie Greene. On campus, Brodie would walk the same hallways as Cathedrals bandmate Johnny Hwin; but they would never meet until one summer after graduation, when a mutual friend corralled them together at the San Francisco artist collective, The SUB. Johnny, with his distinct electronic sensibility, had a vault of tracks and a string of ideas; Brodie, a soulful crooner with folk roots and a Gothic heart, found an uncanny rapport. Over time the band opened itself up to collaborations outside of their studio in the Mission, and Brodie found herself weaving together songs with a new group of talented musicians and producers. Many of the songs from these sessions have yet to be shared with the world. “Down Like That” is the first to be released outside of the band, and perhaps the first of many. WEBSITE
