Mixtape: Experimental Music from Bay Area Artists

http://media.libsyn.com/media/thebaybridged/Experimental_Mix_2015.mp3 Download: Mixtape: Experimental Music from Bay Area Artists (Podcast #369) We may focus most heavily on indie rock at The Bay Bridged, but we also aren't oblivious to the many talented local artists operating outside of standard rock and pop conventions. The Bay Area has long been home to talented experimental and avant-garde musicians who employ acoustic and electronic instruments in unique and impressive ways. We've collected music from twelve experimental local artists in this mixtape. That's not to say that there aren't some more conventional elements being played with here. As you'll hear in the mixtape's opener, local [...]

Noise Pop 2015: Holly Herndon monitors The Lab

For all involved, Holly Herndon’s prodigious set at The Lab on Sunday night for Noise Pop was an exercise in the limitations of sound, vision, social agitation, supervision, and dissociation. Crowded into the center of an unobtrusive and stale space, while the outside world incessantly buzzed towards the center of the Mission, unprepared attendees found themselves suddenly guided into an intimately surveilled microcosm, simultaneously embellished and probed by the beautifully discordant sound experiments that make up the oeuvre of the Bay Area artist. Situated into a triangular space partitioned by three large screens, Holly and her equipment took their place [...]

Editors' Picks: What We've Been Listening to This Week (Painted Palms, Holly Herndon, Pontiak, Blank Realm)

Editors' Picks is a feature collecting music that we’ve been enjoying recently. Anna: I've hit play a few times on Painted Palms' Forever, always enjoying and finding the whole record to be a great uplifter for weary afternoons. Most recently, however, the album came up once again in my Rdio feed, and as I listened through, the hooks of "Not Really There" really dug in, and I haven't been able to stop listening since. The song has an incredibly infectious spirit, an almost glimmer-y quality, as it pops and echoes and comes back again in its circular, easygoing melody. Forever [...]
