Download: Live This Month: April 2018 (Podcast #425)
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.
We’ve got a whole wealth of great local bands in this month’s mix, with new music from Healers, The Family Crest, and Sandy’s joined by new-to-the-podcast acts Down 2 Earth, Shame Waves, Aria Rostami & Daniel Blomquist, and Moon Daze.
Electronic artists also make a big impression in this set. In addition to the Rostami/Blomquist track, enjoy synth-driven sounds from Alice Glass, Yaeji, and Lou Rebecca. Or, if you’re looking for something heavier, check out Yamantaka // Sonic Titan‘s new sci-fi concept album, as well the dense, sample-driven rock of Kraus.
Enjoy the podcast and then go see some concerts!
