We is Shore Dedicated are throwing a CD release party for their third album, RhinoceRoses/Rabbit Noose, released by Huevo Imaginary Records. They’ll be performing at the Rickshaw Stop this Thursday, March 12, and the show starts at 8pm.
Following Rainbo Donuts, which won The Deli SF’s CD of the month, they aren’t holding anything back. Sam Tristin, from San Francisco’s The Ebb and Flow, fronts this new experimental Latin-influenced sound, and is setting course for broad musical horizons. There’s balladeering and classically crooning vocals, electronic noise and soul influence on the track â€œTime of the Wolves,â€ which is influenced by Henke. Inspired by Mexican regional beats and rhythms, â€œCaetano Veloso,â€ is a song named after the widely acclaimed and admired “Bob Dylan of Brazil.”
Heading to shore or elsewhere is Rafter (SD – Asthmatic Kitty), a band that adds more promising danceable acousmatic sounds and electronic noise to stand out tracks â€œChancesâ€ (from their album Sex Death Cassette) and â€œNoiseâ€ (from new EP Sweaty Magic).
Shoring up the event before heading off to SXSW, Viva Voce (Portland) will be making a stellar showing to bring in the party with their psychedelic classic rock hits, â€œDrown Them Outâ€ and newer track, â€œFree Nude Celebs.â€
