Revival





The Mackinaws @ Homegrown

“Holy Mackinaw” well we didn’t see that coming! With a name as witty as Joe Bowen, The Mackinaws are a band of brotherly love showcasing eclectic rock n’ roll skills. Recorded live off the floor, “The Mackinaws” is a warm, rounded record with extraordinary harmonies and exceptional guitar riffs. ‘Spending Time’ kicks the album off with spiraling guitars and catchy lyrics that have you “clenching your chest” to sweet sounds. ‘Booze’ is a drinking man's anthem, with a little bit of country food for the soul. ‘Light of My Life’ takes a soft step with romantic vocals, a banjo twang, hand beats and pretty harmonies, that have you singing right a-long. Their album as a whole is layered with rock, country and blues influences that get peeled away with every track revealing The Mackinaws talents. Don’t miss them Saturday 5/30 night @ Homegrown in Hamilton.

Dirty Denim and Mount Vision Support Spindrift at Brick and Mortar - 5/27

The San Francisco based all female neo garage rock band, Dirty Denim will be performing at Brick and Mortar Music Hall tomorrow night in support of the Los Angeles based psych western rock band, Spindrift. The Bay Area based band, Mount Vision will be premiering their live tunes for the first time in San Francisco as the band consists of members of the neo psych rock band, Asteroid #4.

Spindrift is bringing a brand new line up into town as Kirpatrick Thomas works with a plethora of California based musicians to perform his "music-to film" style of imaginitive and energetic modern western rock songs. Spindrift puts on a good show!

Head down to Brick and Mortar and support Kymberli's Music Box shows, the great local bands who are performing along with the headliner.





Makeunder Releases New Single: Great Headless Blank

The Oakland based progressive, avant art rock band Makeunder has released a new single entitled, Great Headless Blank. This song is the title track of their brand new EP and is exciting, interesting and encompasses splashes of electronic (computer parody) sound installations that take you on a wild musical ride. Great Headless Blank is reminiscent of new wave music like DEVO and Talking Heads and could be a soundtrack to a David Lynch short film. The music is like an artsy ice bucket to the face, which can be refreshing and utterly intense. There is a bit of swagger to the music though. You can hear a soulful confidence in the songs that seperates it from being avant nerd rock or classical alt rock, which can be coy and standoffish.

"Makeunder is the solo project of bandleader Hamilton Ulmer, who crafted his first release using a violin, saxophone, fatigued vocals and a small hand drum. Since then, Ulmer has rounded out the band’s lineup with Van Jackson-Weaver (vocals, guitars), Samantha York (vocals), Mario Godoy (synths, saxophone), Carolyn Walter (saxophones, winds) and John Doing (percussion). In Great Headless Blank, Ulmer confronts personal tragedies sorting through the ashes with a juxtaposed, exuberant sound comparable to Passion Pit’s Gossamer."

Makeunder is a bold music project and we're into to this new track. Take a minute to check it out!

Video Premiere: The Love Dimension - Inner Eye Insight + Show at GAMH - 5/23

The San Francisco based psychedelic revivalist band, The Love Dimension has shared a new music video for Inner Eye Insight, a single from their latest album, Create and Consume. The video was directed by Matt Robeson of White Light Prism.

"Matt took us around the Bay Area last December and January on location to various spots in Oakland, San Francisco and Marin County. Hiking around with all that gear into all of those nature spots wasn't easy, but we had a lot of fun filming this so want to share it with you." -Jimmy Dias, lead singer/songwriter of TLD

Oh, we're so into the love-centric, esoteric lyrics of Inner Eye Insight and the amazing nature shots going on in the video. It's really nice to see the band's six member full line up grooving all in one shot!

Check out the video and then take the opportunity to see The Love Dimension perform live at Great American Music Hall in San Francisco on Saturday, May 23rd. The show will also include performances by Cellar Doors, Buzzmutt and The Bad Jones.

The strange and experimental nu-gaze band, The Pleasure Routine will be sharing the bill with Birdstriking along with the psych, slightly prog influenced experimental band,  Chui Wan and Birdstriking/Chui Wan combo side project, Deadly Cradle Death.
