Interview: With Our Arms To The Sun on their unique sound, touring with John 5 and… Walt Disney?

Experimental metal band With Our Arms To The Sun rolled through town on February 10 in support of Rob Zombie guitarist John 5, who is currently on his first major solo instrumental tour. I caught up with the band at DNA Lounge before the show to see what's up. We discussed how aliens named the band, their unique take on metal, and their hopes to tour with Walt Disney in 2016. With Our Arms To The Sun's A Far Away Wonder was easily one of the most exciting metal or post-metal releases of 2014. Fans of King Crimson, Tool, Isis, [...]

Premiere: Vows – “Bohemian Baby”

Some Vows can never be broken. You've heard plenty from guitarist/singer Luke Sweeney lately, but his once-and-future-band Vows have been silent for the better part of the past two years.

Without further ado, here is an exclusive premiere of "Bohemian Baby," the first single from new Vows album Mirages: Mirages by Vows Mirages was actually [...]

Unconditional Arms, Mother Room to play book release party at The Honey Hive Gallery

Oakland post-rockers Unconditional Arms and lo-fi noise project Mother Room are both known for creating lush, almost cinematic music. The chance to see them together is not to be missed, even if it is in celebration of still images instead of those newfangled motion pictures. Both bands are playing the release party for new music photography book Sentimental Sounds by Senny Mau, who wrote on Facebook: "It's been a tough year of working on it, but, it's also been great because I got to meet a lot of sick people and have made some new friends along the way. You have [...]

Hey, remember that dude Ty Segall? It's been almost five whole months since he put out a record, so you might have forgotten all about him. But he's back with the Mr. Face EP, out this week on Famous Class. You can listen to Mr. Face below, but I warn you: You'll be doing it wrong.

Exray’s to bring the mysteries of Vessel XII to the de Young, the stage, and beyond

Last month, a strange email landed in my inbox. It was from Jon Bernson, musician, artist, playwright who is "resident sound designer" for the Tides Theater, and founder of the record label Howell's Transmitter. As you can tell, Bernson is a multifaceted dude, but this email was peculiar even for him—by which I mean full of links and what seemed like "information" yet completely cryptic at the same time. "Welcome to Vessel XII" was the subject line and there was a link to download a new EP from Exray's, Jon's lo-fi electro-pop band that also features Michael Falsetto-Mapp as beatsmith [...]
