Lords of Sealand Releases New Single - Motion

San Francisco's Lords of Sealand has announced the release of Motion, a four-movement dissection of the lives of plants and whether or not they are truly animate. Following the release of 2014's debut album Found Fiction, recorded just 3 months after the the full lineup was assembled, the band intentionally employed a more intricate and methodical group composition dynamic that is now being first unveiled on Motion.

Originally conceived as a distraction from the long production process of the upcoming full-length dream-based album Zs, Motion quickly grew into a self-contained but dense concept record in its own right. Disparate influences including, Yes, Genesis, The Mars Volta, along with the addition of synths, electronic percussion and sound design elements paint a vivid homage to the classic prog epic that feels fresh, modern and, dare we say, danceable.

"Motion, simply, is an exploration of the lives of plants, asking if plants are, in fact, animate objects. Deeper, it explores a concept that is fundamentally human: what does it mean to be living an impactful, meaningful life? It is about yin and yang. The music and lyrics together take you through the journey of a lifecycle, the ups and downs that come with living a purposeful life." -Lords of Sealand

Meklit Performs at Rickshaw Stop on May 6th

The Ethiopian-born, Oakland-based artist Meklit will perform at Rickshaw Stop on May 6th!

Combining Ethiopian jazz influences with soul and pop, Meklit’s music melds complex rhythms with vibrant melodies. Her new album When the People Move, the Music Moves Too will be released on June 23rd through Six Degrees Records, and was produced by multi-grammy winning artist Dan Wilson of Semisonic (Adele, John Legend) and features Andrew Bird as well as the Preservation Hall Jazz Band horns on several tracks.

When the People Move, the Music Moves Too is the result of a fateful encounter Meklit experienced in Addis Ababa with the legendary vibraphonist/composer Mulatu Astatke, who helped spark Ethiopia’s 1960s musical renaissance. She was deeply engaged with his music at the time, but he pushed her to think about how to bring her own experiences into her songs - “He was very pointed with me, saying several times ‘You keep innovating!’” she recalls. “He took me to task and he tasked me. It took me a while to digest that. It’s a big thing to have someone like that say that to you. I sat with it for a couple of years.”





The Undercurrent Releases New Music Video - Waves

The San Francisco based band, The Undercurrent, has released a new music video for their first single, Waves, from their upcoming EP. The song and video embody the band's soulful, indie pop sound with a distinctive California vibe. This new Bay Area duo cleverly combines driving beats, layered guitar riffs, and distinctive melodies, by tying them all together with heartfelt lyrics. The Undercurrent is currently working on their first EP, Lost in the Haze, expected to be released Fall 2017.

As a multi-instrumentalist and producer, Paul is able to both craft and record complex guitar parts, compelling bass lines, and dynamic drum beats, whilst maintaining a keen ear for detail and balance. Wendy's expressive and soulful voice spans.

 





Down Dirty Shake and Cosmic Correlation Conspiracy Share a Bill With Black Doldrums at Elbo Room - 4/20

On April 20th, the San Francisco based neo psych band, Down Dirty Shake will be performing live and sharing a bill with the SF based band, Cosmic Correlation Conspiracy and the UK based psych duo Black Doldrums. Make sure you head down to the Elbo Room to experience a full on night of heavy psychedelic rock vibes.

Down Dirty Shake is a rock n roll band based out of San Francisco. The group is deeply influenced by the 60's/70's. Touching on latin, psych, soul, pop and garage rock. The live shows are guaranteed to be an experience; always full of energy and raw emotion. DDS is most well known for there annual milk bar residency and throwing DIY music festivals. Cosmic Correlation Conspiracy made their first appearance as the opening act for the 1960’s cult-classic, The Chocolate Watchband on their 50th year anniversary show at the Acid Test in May of 2016. Stemming from the universal musical tradition of reinterpretation, their music is a fusion of freewheeling freak-flagged blues with a twist of eastern mysticism and tribal rhythms. Black Doldrums supported Sterling Roswell of Spacemen 3 and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth at the Stock Newington Music Festival as well as Lee Scratch Perry and The Fall at Levels Festival. Additionally, they took time out to play two shows back to back in London and Manchester for the Alan McGee curated charity events Musicians Against Homelessness, supporting 'Blue Orchids' and sharing the stage with Martin Bramah (founding member of The Fall).
