Cocktails debut single from new EP, release show with Warm Soda and DSTVV at The Hemlock on 2/1/13

Photo by Mathew Scott San Francisco "slop-pop" band Cocktails are set to release their debut 7-inch EP on Father Daughter Records in February, and last week premiered the track "Hey Winnie" from the album at Impose Magazine. "Hey Winnie" is two minutes of garage-pop perfection - a great beat, fuzzy guitars, and a hook you'll be humming all day. Not only is the self-titled EP Cocktails' first vinyl release, it's also the first local release for San Francisco/Miami based Father Daughter, which has put together a very nice roster of bands since getting started in 2009. Check out this recent [...]

Video: DSTVV – "Molly Soda" (feat. Keel Her)

DSTVV just released a seizure-inducing video for their track "Molly Soda", and like all things DSTVV, it's bizarre, lo-fi, and kind of hilarious all at the same time. The video is directed by Jack Cusumano, the brother of DSTVV frontman Joel Cusumano, and features clips of GIFs "curated" from Joel's tumblr, blameaspartame. The track is an homage to Molly Soda, a major figure in the odd world of odd tumblrs who Joel tells me "was a perfect subject for a slacker anthem." DSTVV will play the Hemlock February 1st along with Warm Soda and Cocktails. Warm Soda, Cocktails, DSTVV Hemlock [...]

Song Premiere: DSTVV – "N.I.T.A."

Photo by Allison Donlevy We're big fans of DSTVV here at The Bay Bridged, and it's not just because frontman Joel Cusumano gave this fine website a bit of an ironic shoutout in "Hannah Lew (Did My Video)". (Note: Hannah Lew did not actually produce a DSTVV video.) No, DSTVV is great because, in a small number of releases, they've created a sound that is distinctively their own while poking a little fun at the San Francisco art culture that they happen to be a part of. For DSTVV's latest release, they covered "N.I.T.A." from Welsh post-punks Young Marble Giants. [...]

DSTVV – "Ariel's a Punk"

According to DSTVV's "official" bio, frontman Joel Cusumano "swears he's only listened to MINISTRY and COCTEAU TWINS during the months before creating the songs that appear on DSTVV's debut." While that may sound a bit ridiculous, when you listen to the band's debut – an EP titled Molly Soda – that explanation makes sense, and the combination actually works quite well. "Whatever sound came out of this just kind of happened with me trying to use the loudest drums I could find in Logic," explains Cusumano. He also aimed for "Smashing Pumpkins-style sounds out of the guitars with my Big [...]
