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

Be Calm Honcho Release New Track - Bad Man

The San Francisco based band, Be Calm Honcho has released a new track, Bad Man.

Bad Man tells the story of lead singer Shannon Harney's brother who is currently serving a jail term. She explains: "In and out of the justice system, various addictions, the whole gamut of trauma and trouble and family can go through. It's very personal, it's very dear to me and the themes it tackles are important to the people who gravitate towards my music.

“I wrote this song for my kid brother in jail,” shares Be Calm Honcho’s vocalist Shannon Harney. “In and out of the justice system, various addictions, the whole gamut of trauma and trouble and family can go through. It's very personal, it's very dear to me and the themes it tackles are important to the people who gravitate towards my music.”

All Your Sisters touring Eastern Europe in support of sophomore album 'Uncomfortable Skin'

Those of you enamoured with the minimalistic and suspenceful sound of early post punk (think Joy Division, Bauhaus and The Cure from the Pornography years) should check out San Francisco's duo All Your Sisters, who released their second full length album 'Uncomfortable Skin' this past summer and is currently touring the whole of Europe, a land inhabited by music fans who, on average, appreciate that sound more than Americans do. The tour is a month long, 25+ date tour de force, and has already taken them from Germany to Moscow in two weeks. After playing St. Petersburg and Zurich back to back in the last two days, they'll head to Zagreb, Basel, Paris, Amsterdam, up to Helsinki, and back east again to Warsaw and Berlin. Legendary stuff! They'll be back in the US in December with a show at LA's The Echo on the 4th.
