Mixtape: The Ones That Got Away (Podcast #255)

This episode is sponsored by BottleRockIt. Mixtape: The Ones That Got Away (Podcast #255) Our recent Regional Bias fundraiser concert featured the final local performance by Royal Baths before the band relocates to the East Coast, a fact that got us thinking about the many active artists who have left the Bay Area for other pastures in recent years.

What puts them in such a rare category, however, is the music they have churned out with such apparent ease. Deerhoof - Behold a Marvel in the Darkness by Polyvinyl Records Virtually no band since Sonic Youth has so mastered the art of pairing experimentalism with pop craft, heady ideas with visceral rock and roll. What other art rock, nerd rock or whatever rock bands like Dirty [...]
