Weekend Warrior, December 15 - 17

If you’re looking for soulful, pertinent, lo-fi rock that simultaneously exhibits grace and grit, Las Vegas transplant Shamir delivers the goods. Bailey’s latest record, Revelations (Father/Daughter Records), traverses a diverse sonic spectrum. Digging into one’s introspective depths in free-floating fashion or meshing those smoothly sincere vocals with grimy guitar, there’s an innate combination of accessibility and raw power at play. With elegance and ease, the multi-talented artist delivers powerful messages, striking a chord with oh so many and creating a formidable force to be reckoned with. This Saturday evening, Shamir steps into the basement of First Unitarian Church, supported by the Canadian tandem Partner, whose bright brand of riff-laced powerpop cultivates a potently fun, “not taking yourself too seriously” relatability. – Michael Colavita

New Damn Right Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

The duo of Damn Right recently shared its new full-length album Zeitgeist. Relaxing, electro-dance rhythms wash over you as a dream state emerges. Transporting listeners to a stress-free environment, the collection of tracks produces a refreshing reprieve. You can catch Tom Bradel and John Fissinger performing live next Friday, January 19 at MilkBoy, where they'll be celebrating the LP's release, with support from American Dinosaur and Greg D.





New Soft Idiot LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Rain Wins Another Year!, the new album from Soft Idiot, recently arrived, and is available on cassette courtesy of Cheap Plastic Records. Saturated in emotive melodies, the record unites a series of diary-styled narratives. Invited into one's personal space, these songs exude an effervescent warmth, while exposing an endearing interior. That pleasure and pain principle strewn across a lo-fi, folk platform is a domain that you’ll explore and escape within.





Riley McShane's "Places" EP is indie folk at its finest

The newest release by San Jose native folk artist Riley McShane is the type of project that sneaks up on you, in the best way possible. Aptly titled Places, it is a drifter's rumination on what it means to be rooted somewhere—in ways both mental and physical. Recorded in various bedrooms, classrooms, and cars, this triumphant EP is a reminder of what makes the D.I.Y. scene so great. Reminiscent of other indie folk greats like Gregory Alan Isakov, Riley McShane is one to watch very closely (especially since he never seems to stay in one place for very long.) Check out his EP, and catch him playing SoFar Sounds on Saturday (an event almost as nomadic as the artist himself.) - Lilly Milman

New Telyscopes LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Sandwiching the zoomed-in lyricism of bedroom folk with the strange, space-dwelling setting of psych, The Hobbyist, the new album from Telyscopes (led by Jack Hubbell), aligns one on a pleasant trajectory. Light layers of instrumentation are compounded by the tranquilizing presence of falsetto. While the album is characterized as "A 'tuna casserole' with some new songs and old leftovers strewn together in no particular order,” the collection retains a sense of unity. Along with Jawncarlo, Georgey V, and Earthboy, Telyscopes will be performing on Saturday, January 27 at a Castle Productions billing.
