Cut of the Day: E*Rock "False Fortress (Moon Duo Remix)"


 This is the kind of meeting of two genius musical minds that I wish would happen more often. If I'm remembering the story Eric Mast (Mr. E*Rock if you're nasty), he approached the folks in Moon Duo about doing a video for one of their songs. The Duo said they'd love to but had no money to spend on such a project. But Mast wanted to go ahead with it anyway and just asked that they do a remix ...   More

Video Roundup: Poor Boy's Soul, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, And And And, Strategy, Youthbitch, Aaron O'Bryan Smith


Poor Boy's Soul - "Nails In The Pine"

Lots of cavorting in this edition of the Video Roundup. In this case, it's a bunch of well-dressed young folk playing leapfrog with tombstones, playing dice and smooching in a church, and boozing it up to the sound of Poor Boy's Soul's one-man stomping fol...   More

Enjoy the Fruits of Coachella Closer To Home


 Sure, you could spend hundreds of dollars to fly or drive down to southern California, wade through a sea of people, camp on the unforgiving earth, and end up paying $8 for a bottle of water just to brag to your friends for months afterwards that you were at Coachella, man! But wouldn't it make more sense to spend your money closer ...   More

Cut of the Day: The Ghost Ease, "Being Born"


 Considering how much information pours out of a musician or a band via their Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr accounts, it's a breath of fresh air when an artist doesn't let you know absolutely everything that he/she is doing or thinking through the day.

UPDATED: Help S.F. Band Dominant Legs Recover Their Stolen Gear


Here's a story to make your music-loving blood boil: the fantastic San Francisco band Dominant Legs were in town on Tuesday, playing a show at Mississippi Studios, opening up for Eleanor Friedberger. Post-show, they parked their van with their instruments and personal effects in it on SE 6th and Ash for an hour while they did something a block away. And in that time, their van was broken into...   More

Live Review: Eleanor Friedberger @ Mississippi Studios, Feb. 7th 2012


 It's frankly a miracle that Eleanor Friedberger was able to get through a full set of songs last night. There were distractions galore going on around the stage at Mississippi Studios. More than one beverage loudly dropped from the upstairs balcony - making the decision to only serve drinks in plastic cups that much smarter. Then there was the young female superfan who acted out a sad s...   More

Cut of the Day: White Rainbow, "MACHINE BRUKKS," INFINITY BEAT TAPE (self-released)


 As with almost everything Adam Forkner puts his stamp on, it's a fool's errand to try to choose simply one track to highlight. Such is the case with his latest release under his solo moniker White Rainbow. Infinity Beat Tape is a sprawling motherfucker of a collection of tunes that manages to connect the dots be...   More
