Collecting some of the various media released by Bay Area bands recently, there’s good stuff here from some of the Bay’s best:

Loquat have a brand new video for “Big Key, Little Door,” from last year’s Secrets of the Sea.

Loquat – “Big Key, Little Door”

The Dodos just released the first video from their latest album. Check out “Fables” below.

The Dodos – “Fables”

It’s no slight to the Bodega Girls that their remix of Port O’Brien‘s “My Will Is Good” doesn’t match the addictiveness of the original song. The remix does, however, take the song to dancier terrain.

Pitchfork recently posted Karl Blau‘s take on Why?‘s “This Blackest Purse,” from Eskimo Snow. The mp3 credits the song to the album “Eskimo Snow Remixes & Covers (Unmastered).” Might there be more reinterpretations forthcoming?

John Vanderslice has a new limited-edition 7″ featuring “Too Much Time” and the brand new B-side “Moon Rocks”, out on October 6th. To promote, Dead Oceans released this demo of the A-side.
