A bunch of great shows tonight: Times New Viking/Spencey Dude, Michael Yonkers/The Sandwitches, Aesop Rock/Kimya Dawson

On a busy week like this one, it can be (and was) difficult to whittle down our list of preferred shows to just four for Recommended. For instance, in addition to all of that other great stuff this week that we mentioned yesterday, there are no fewer than three great shows tonight, Tuesday, June 14th. As Kevin from Positive Destruction flagged yesterday in the comments, the new Times New Viking album is something special. The band's first record on Merge, it's plenty fuzzy but with some real strong skewed-pop bursting through. King Tuff and Spencey Dude and the Doodles (who [...]

Noise Pop Review: Kimya Dawson, Aesop Rock 2/25/11

Kimya Dawson and Aesop Rock know how to throw a party. Equal parts one-off take-home stage decorations, interpretive cross-dressing dance performance, turntablism, animal costumes and just a dash of space exploration. Let's back up. I have to admit that I was drawn to the Aesop Rock/Kimya Dawson collaboration for the same reasons that had Ben scratching his head at the line up, initially. What would that collaboration sound like? It sounds a lot like Aes rapping over piano and guitar melody. It also sounds like Kimya lilting over Serato scratches. The earnestness with which each wordsmith took at a stab [...]

Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson collaborate on new music, show at Noise Pop (win tickets!)

It's important to be able to admit when you're wrong, I think, so I'll own up to some initial head-scratching about next week's Noise Pop show billed as "A Night with Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson." Aesop and Kimya, both are great, but what do they have in common? Well, as it turns out, a lot. As the K Records Tumblr pointed out last week, Kimya Dawson's got a solo album called Thunder Thighs out later this year, and the first leaked track, "Miami Advice," featuring Aesop Rock and the Olympia Free Choir, doesn't just sound good. It actually sounds [...]

And what a weekend it was. The Bay Bridged was on hand to live blog both Day 1 and Day 2 of the Treasure Island Music Festival to capture the vibe and crowds. We also had our photographer Muhammad Asranur running from stage to stage to photograph some of the best moments of the festival up close and personal.
