Sunhaze Releases New Music: Wishful Thinking

Sunhaze has released their debut album entitled, Wishful Thinking. Sunhaze originated from the vision of Danae Labraña, a San Francisco transplant hailing from the shores of Santa Barbara. Fellow San Francisco State alumni Priscilla del Rosario with Erin Walter then added their native Bay Area-influenced elements to a handful of Labraña's singer-songwriter works. The last two additions Brandon Iljas and Aaron Chin completed the lineup soon after and as a group, they began molding their sound.

Jacob Montague Shares New Music Project - Tsutro

San Francisco-based artist/producer Jacob Montague has announced a new project called Tsutro, and will be releasing a self-titled debut LP February 10, 2017. The new Tsutro album—mastered by Dale Becker (Beyonce & Ryan Lewis) and drawing from a diverse collection of sounds including pop, worldbeat, future garage, ambient & downtempo—sounds at first like one band backing a new guest vocalist on each of its 10 songs. But in reality, Montague hasn't even met most of the singers, let alone recorded with them.

"With most of the tracks," he explains, "I took a phrase or two from an existing song, then built all new music around it."

Despite the collage-like approach, Montague is hesitant to call any of the songs remixes—which makes perfect sense considering Tsutro's unified arrangements. As much as the album relies on minimalist electronic textures, there's an unquestionably organic connection between the instrumentation and the carefully curated vocal stems.

Premiere: Mark Nelsen Band - In My Own Defense

Mark Nelsen Band has a new single called In My Own Defense and we're excited to share it with you! We reviewed Mark Nelsen's solo single, Screwball (Change the Weather) two years ago, which is a part of this same collection / album being released. Nonetheless, the songs by Mark Nelsen Band are heavier rock n roll / alternative and bluesy.

"Our newest track 'In My Own Defense' foreshadows the long overdue 'Change The Weather' LP - a collection of heavier, bluesier band recordings from 2012-2015. Finally this album is coming out! This particular song is an upbeat rocker who's remorseful narrator searches for peace of mind under the moonlight. He's unsure why he's guilty and wonders if he really must change. Something like that." - Mark Nelsen

Lara Downes Set to Release America Again Inspired by the Langston Hughes Poem

San Francisco based pianist, Lara Downes will release her next solo album, America Again on October 28, 2016. The album’s title is taken from Langston Hughes’ poem, Let America Be America Again, written in 1938.

Downes’ 2016 album, America Again, explores music that expresses different facets of the American dream – its hope, its impossibility, and its necessity. Lara Downes conceived of the album in June 2015, in response to the Charleston, SC shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. She recorded the album in March 2016 at Sono Luminus’ studio in Boyce, VA. Downes writes of the meaning in the album, “Today, as I write these words, we are living again in troubled times. For too many Americans, circumstance and skin color still keep the promise out of reach, the dream deferred. The hard-won rights and long-sought justice for which our parents and grandparents fought are too easily slipping away. The rifts and rivalries that divide us as a nation seem to run deeper than ever. But still, we dreamers keep dreaming our dream. This music is a tribute to the generations of Americans who dream the impossible: black and white, men and women, immigrants and pioneers. It tells the story of their journeys, their loves and longings, their hardships and their hopes. American music is made of everything we are, coming from so many different people and places, expressing so many different dreams
