Still Flyin’ (Podcast #186)

[podcast]http://media.libsyn.com/media/thebaybridged/Still_Flyin_Show.mp3[/podcast] This week, our podcast spotlights Still Flyin', the dozen-plus member San Francisco band who released their debut full length, Never Gonna Touch The Ground, earlier this year. The group is led by singer/songwriter Sean Rawls, who first made his mark in Athens bands Masters of the Hemisphere and Je Suis France. Formed after Rawls moved to SF, Still Flyin' was originally supposed to be jokey reggae-leaning band. While that pitch may have led fourteen of his musically-talented friends to show up at the first practice, the group's big, fun melodies probably play a bigger part in keeping the collective [...]

WHY? (Podcast #185)

[podcast]http://media.libsyn.com/media/thebaybridged/Why_Show.mp3[/podcast] This week's podcast spotlights WHY?, whose new album Eskimo Snow is out now on Anticon Records. The album is WHY?'s third full length as a band, and it comes bearing the high expectations that follow 2005's Elephant Eyelash and 2008's Alopecia, releases that meshed catchy folk-rock with the rhythms and pastiche-friendly aesthetic of hip hop. Eskimo Snow was actually recorded at the same time as Alopecia, but it became quickly apparent to the band that certain songs would only fit on one album or the other. While the new work carries many of the WHY? hallmarks, layered melodic rock [...]

Wallpaper. (Podcast #182)

[podcast]http://media.libsyn.com/media/thebaybridged/Wallpaper_Show.mp3[/podcast] This week, our podcast features Oakland electro-R&B-pop duo Wallpaper., whose debut full length Doodoo Face, comes out today on Eenie Meenie Records. Like perhaps many, we stumbled onto the band via the song and video for "T. Rex", off the 2008 EP of the same name. That track quickly became a favorite around the studio, as has every Wallpaper. song or remix we've heard since then, expertly mixing addictive melodies, layered sounds and rhythms. The music also has real sense of fun that make them expert live showmen, and when we hosted the band at the Bay Area Takeover [...]

The Dodos (Podcast #181)

[podcast]http://media.libsyn.com/media/thebaybridged/Dodos_Show_2.mp3[/podcast] This week, our podcast features The Dodos, a San Francisco band who need little introduction if you've been following indie rock over the past few years. The group's third album, Time to Die, comes out today, after an advance digital release spurred by an early album leak. 2008's Visiter fulfilled the anticipation built by years of relentless touring, receiving universally strong reviews that catapulted the band into the international spotlight. This being The Dodos, the release was followed by another year of relentless touring, and then, a break. For a band so used to a frenzy, the time off [...]

[podcast]http://media.libsyn.com/media/thebaybridged/Mumlers_Show.mp3[/podcast] This week, our podcast features The Mumlers, a San Jose band whose sophomore album, Don't Throw Me Away, comes out today on Galaxia Records. The group's members were initially intended to be guest contributors on a solo recording by lead singer Will Sprott. Instead, they've united to become a formidable band full of talented musicians, whose first album, 2008's Thickets & Stitches, channeled their skills into a loose collection of folk, rock, blues and soul. Since that album's release, The Mumlers have been supporting the record with entertaining live shows that allows the sextet's players to switch between multiple [...]
