A “Fresh & Onlys Divorce Reunion” is at Night Light tonight

Grace Sings Sludge (Grace Cooper) and Earth Girl Helen Brown (Heidi Alexander) have been a part of some great San Francisco bands, namely The Sandwitches and The Fresh & Onlys. Tonight they're sharing the stage with their old bandmate, Fresh and Onlys' front man Tim Cohen for a great cozy show at the Night Light in Oakland. Of primary importance tonight is the release of Grace Sings Sludge's LP Life with Dick, out now on vinyl via Empty Cellar Records. Cooper's voice is always strong and alluring, yet very dark on Life with Dick. I picture her confidently delivering her [...]

Out this week: New albums from Papercuts, Lumerians, Earth Girl Helen Brown, That Ghost

Here's a look at four Bay Area bands and artists who all released new records this week. While he's well known as a studio wizard, what struck me most in recently seeing Papercuts perform was that Jason Quever can also write a hell of a pop song. His first album on Sub Pop is the brand new Fading Parade.
