Blasted Canyons – “Death and a Half”

As if their songs aren’t restless enough, the members of SF trio Blasted Canyons — Matt Jones, Heather Fedewa, and Adam Finken — switch between guitars, keyboards and drums between songs. An anarchic setup, sure, but the band’s music frequently revels in fuzzy mayhem, mixing raw, garage jams with noisy drones.

It’s a unique sound that’s been captured on two great records for Castle Face. This year’s 2nd Place EP amped up the pop in the trio’s synth-garage-pop with a collection of extremely catchy gems like “Holy Geometry.” Most recently, the band served up a rad cover of “Venus in Furs” for Castle Face’s Velvet Underground tribute album.

We previously described one of the Blasted Canyons’ live shows as “incendiary,” which sets expectations appropriately high for their performance at The Bay Brewed 2012 on Saturday. Get your tickets now!
