Mixtape: Singer-Songwriters of the San Francisco Bay Area (Podcast #293)

Mixtape: Singer-Songwriters of the San Francisco Bay Area (Podcast #293) With its rich history of folk musicians and lyrical rockers, the Bay Area has long been a source of terrific singer-songwriters. Even today, while much of the buzz around local musicians focuses on some of our weirder (or, perhaps, more "now") rock subgenres, there continue to be numerous talented folks crafting lyrically-rich, deeply personal music. For some reason, 2012 seems like an especially strong year for local songwriters, with well-received new albums this year from beloved veterans like Mark Eitzel and Mark Kozelek's Sun Kil Moon, as well as newer [...]

Mixtape: Things You May Have Missed Earlier This Year (Podcast #280)

Mixtape: Things You May Have Missed Earlier This Year (Podcast #280) Words by Ben Van Houten When it was pitched, this episode was known informally as an "underrated bands" mix, a label that seems as unworkable as it feels insulting. In an age of increasing access to an perpetually growing volume of music, and a culture that focuses on always keeping an eye out for the next big thing, the idea that any band could hold any attention long enough to be over-/under-/rated at all seems unlikely. Forget ratings and rankings: just remembering what you like can be a challenge [...]

Live This Month: February 2012 — an audio guide through SF concerts this month (Podcast #270)

Live This Month: February 2012 (Podcast #270) 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. The twentieth installment of the Noise Pop Music Festival takes over a wide variety of local venues later this month -- and we'll be covering many of those shows -- but there are also plenty of pre-NP events worth checking out. Locally, two bands are seeing the release of records for which it feels like we've been waiting forever: the debut LP from ultra-catchy punks Terry Malts, and [...]

Donovan Quinn – "Shadow on the Stone"

Videos: Donovan Quinn performs solo, with Six Organs of Admittance’s Ben Chasny

Donovan Quinn & the 13th Month - "Mom's House" Donovan Quinn & the 13th Month's post-Velvets psych-pop was one of the highlights of last week's Dark Nights show, and it reminded me to revisit the group's 2010 full length, Your Wicked Man. Via Soft Abuse's blog, I was excited to see that Quinn has formed a duo with Six Organs of Admittance's Ben Chasny called The New Bums. The two videos here come from a recent tour where Quinn opened for Chasny: above, Donovan performs a new song solo; below, take a listen to/look at The New Bums.
