Golden Void’s crushing grooves coming to Bottom of the Hill this Friday Night

Celebrating the release of their new LP Berkana, the band cements their status as headtrip heroes able to dish out some of the most crushing grooves, chunky riffs and dense sonic arrangements around. Tracks like the ethereal "Astral Plane" and jazz-tinged "Silent Season" also see the group expand to the outer reaches of the genre. Though the term "psych-rock" is casually tossed at any band that dials up the reverb and writes songs that stretch pass the four-minute mark, Golden [...]
Live This Month: September 2015 — an audio guide to upcoming SF concerts
http://media.libsyn.com/media/thebaybridged/LTM_September_2015.mp3 Download: Live This Month: September 2015 (Podcast #370) In Live This Month, we sample some of the great local and out-of-town bands performing in the coming month in the San Francisco Bay Area. How has it taken this long to include Chelsea Wolfe in one of our podcasts? Wolfe started out in Sacramento before relocating to LA, and over the course of four albums has defined a unique mix of heavy doom and gothic folk.

Golden Void offers first single from new LP ‘Berkana’
It's been three years since stellar local psych-rock band Golden Void first impressed us with the band's self-titled debut.

The band -- Isaiah Mitchell (guitar/vocals), Camilla Saufley-Mitchell (keyboards/vocals), Aaron Morgan (bass) and Justin Pinkerton (drums) -- recorded the new album at Tim Green's Grass Valley studio, layering instruments to add new depth to the top-notch heaviness.

Located in the geographical center of California, just outside of North Fork and about four hours from both San Francisco and Los Angeles, Bandit Town has all the fixings of a Wild West movie set: a saloon with swinging doors, a giant horse corral, a tiny [...]
