Mike Sempert

Birds & Batteries frontman Mike Sempert has reemerged from obscurity with an absolute stunner of a song, “Oceans of Rock ‘n’ Roll”:

“Oceans of Rock ‘n’ Roll” hails from Mid Dream, slated for release on May 6th and poised to be your summer album for 2014. Though he’s one of many Bay Area musicians to make the move to L.A. in the last few years, Mid Dream is still very much a Bay Area album: The credits boast a number of Bay Area heavy-hitters, including Kacey Johansing, the Patzner brothers, and his old B&B bandmates, Colin Fahrner and Jill Heinke.

Sempert begins a short tour tomorrow, swinging by Rickshaw Stop on May 14th with Farallons and Johansing herself.
