Change is in the Weather is the latest EP from electro-soul band Blood and Sunshine ("Change is in the Weather"). They will be at Cafe Du Nord on July 20th, with Con Brio and The California Honeydrops.
You can download the Four Song EP by Angel Island ("What It Means, Where It All Comes From") at the group's Bandcamp page. They're playing tonight at the Red Devil Lounge as part of a Beatles tribute show.
Although the song we played is from their 2009 Tran EP, The Aimless Never Miss ("Heart Surgery") have a new album out called The High Dive to Lo-Fi Volume 1. Currently on a California tour, the band's next local show is at We Art Space in Oakland on the Fourth of July.
Northern California duo Gwyneth and Monko's ("Good Old Horse") first joint release is the Good Old Horse EP. They'll be performing at the Noe Valley Farmer's Market on July 10th.
The Foreign Globester is a new album mixing the talents of The Rondo Brothers ("A Quiet Room") and Motion Man.
