Mothers Fathers Sisters Brothers Releases New Track - Favorite Food

Mothers Fathers Sisters Brothers is a collaborative project created by Oakland based musician, Benji Marx.

The music of Mothers Fathers Sisters Brothers focuses on the cycles of gain and loss, happiness and sadness that flow through our lives. The songs were written after the loss of a relationship and a reevaluation of what it means to lead a fulfilling life. I realized that we all have a circle of responsibility and we choose how far we want to extend it. How far can we push this boundary? Can we include each other? This project is a totem to remind me and hopefully others of the circles we draw, and to maintain the mindset that we are all mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers.

"Favorite Food was written with the taste of a lover still in my mouth, her smell still in my nostrils, and a lingering question of where she had gone." - Benji Marx

Scott Hirsch Celebrates Record Release Show - 8/5

After many years spent as a steadfast and inventive collaborator—not only playing bass and producing four albums with Hiss Golden Messenger, but in large part forging that band’s sonic signature—multi­instrumentalist, recordist, and audio engineer Scott Hirsch has finally made a solo album, and it’s called Blue Rider Songs.

To describe Blue Rider Songs as cinematic is almost too easy, considering Hirsch’s acclaimed work as a film sound designer, but there are moments here (like “Raga of the Sea”) that remind me of what Ry Cooder’s Paris, Texas soundtrack might have sounded like if it was recorded in 2016; there is a similar sense of Western scale and desert longing. But what is most interesting about the album is not any one setting or voice, but rather the illimitable, in­between spaces it traverses, the blue highways it rides between various traditions and tangents of North American vernacular music and the various nodes of Hirsch’s long and accomplished musical practice.

Scott is playing his record release show at The Lost Church in San Francisco on August 5th.

The Bribes Play Hyde Street Studios Eclectic Tuesday - 8/2

The Bribes are to play Hyde Street Studios' Eclectic Tuesday on August 2nd from 7pm - 11pm!

The Bribes is the project of Chicago-born, San Francisco-based musician Philip Toscano. Toscano has relocated The Bribes to the Bay after releasing three records and headlining nearly every mid-sized and DIY venue on the northwest side. He is currently performing solo under the name The Bribes and collaborating with Jameson Irish Whisky as a part of the "Spirit of the Neighborhood" campaign.

The band's latest recording, "Dust Tapes," released in May 2016, is an ambitious bite-sized rock opera ​intended ​to portray a series of dreams about mortality through a melodically accessible sonic landscape. The result is a cohesive, dark-but-danceable record infused with pop rock hooks and 1950s/60s rock and roll sensibilities.

Beautiful Machines Introduce New Album - Bridges

The San Francisco based band, Beautiful Machines is back with their new album, Bridges.

Bridges takes the band in a new direction, deepening their exploration of live analog/electronic music. The album is purposefully arranged to take the listener on a journey, like cycling through a Tron-grid landscape to launching into a euphoric stratosphere. Thoughtful, dynamic and full of rich powerful choruses, wide lush verses and tangential bridges, this album strikes a chord and "bridges" technology and emotion.

The 2nd of a trilogy and thematically bridging Disconnect : : Reconnect (2014) with its following concept album Singularity (2017), think of Bridges as an inter-dimensional gateway connecting a circuit or a thought.

Everyone is Dirty Releases New Album - Banana Split

Everyone Is Dirty will be releasing a new piece of music entitled, Banana Split.

Banana Split is a schizophrenic cassette single featuring two brand new tracks of art/rock insanity—the title track un-winds like a fever dream with its warped sound waves and amphetamine crunch, re-calling the Slits as much as David Bowie or Talking Heads; meanwhile on the flip side, “Wax Mannequin Mode” wafts in like a ghostly breeze, a rare glimpse of the softer side of Everyone Is Dirty, evoking The Meat Puppets and Elliott Smith.

Everyone Is Dirty first started shocking audiences with the raw power of their music in 2013, quickly striking a nerve with their explosive sound and electrifying live show. They developed a powerful and singular chemistry virtually overnight—the combination of frontwoman Sivan Lioncub’s electric-violin sorcery and sometimes ethereal, sometimes ferocious vocals; Chris Daddio’s pawn shop guitar crunch; the driving post-punk bass lines of Tyler English; and Tony Sales’ expressive and explosive drumming coalesced in-to a force of nature.
