A Bay Area electronic pop mixtape, featuring Blackbird Blackbird, Electric Sunset, oOoOO, and more (Podcast #235)

Exray’s featured in The Social Network, Ammunition Teeth EP out 10/12

Exray's - "Hesitation" Jon Bernson and Michael Falsetto-Mapp comprise SF's Exray's, who made their big screen soundtrack debut recently with the song "Hesitation" included in The Social Network.
