Phono del Sol 2013 takes place tomorrow, July 13, at Potrero del Sol Park. Get your tickets now! Jason: We've been all over K.Flay in the run up to Phono del Sol, most recently with our boy Roman Gohkman's interview with the talented Ms. Flaherty herself. Her new EP What If It Is is due August 6, and we've already shown you the video for the album track "The Cops". But as much as I love that song, there's another track off the album that I've had on repeat much of this week – K.Flay's collaboration with Detroit rapper Danny [...]

"No Shelter" from Phono del Sol Music and Food Festival performers, Blouse

Portland's dreamy quartet Blouse promised a new album this fall, and in turn has finally released the first single off of said album: "No Shelter." The reverb orbiting Charlie Hilton's ethereal vocals, especially in that opening verse, is reminiscent of the late and great Trish Keenan (Broadcast). It's utterly surprising, really, how different "No Shelter" is from the sound of Blouse's dream-pop, feminine and hushed self-titled album debut in 2011. Overall, the track is more driving and raw than synth-heavy and mid-tempo, like a lot of tracks on Blouse. This could bring a truer variety to their live set, should [...]

Photos: Captured Tracks showcase with The Soft Moon, Blouse @ Cafe du Nord 1/19/12

Last Thursday, January 19th, Captured Tracks showcased two of their West Coast bands, The Soft Moon and Blouse (with the opener Feelings) at Cafe du Nord. This was The Soft Moon's first performance with a live drummer, and they destroyed du Nord just the way they did last time, properly with strobes and blown out volumes. Blouse, a coy, bedroom pop-style band from Portland, was equally appreciated by the large crowd. It was quite a packed venue -- one of those rare nights where on the way in through the front door, bystanders desperately ask you for extra tickets. Either [...]

Live This Month: January 2012 — an audio guide through SF concerts this month (Podcast #268)

Live This Month: January 2012 (Podcast #268) In Live This Month, we sample some of the great local and out-of-town bands performing in the coming month in the San Francisco Bay Area. If the beginning of January feels a little slim on the live music front, things should ramp back up into the usual overwhelming number of interesting shows by the month's end. Several young local bands recently came onto our radar -- including Churches, Poor Sons, and Primitive Hearts -- and they're all partaking in locals-heavy bills in the next few weeks. On the coming-into-town front, it seems that, [...]
