With the solstice kicking off summer earlier this week, we've compiled this mixtape of songs for the season, collecting new and recent releases by San Francisco Bay Area bands that [...]

Get to Know: Ice Cream

The music of Ice Cream may not be as innocently sweet as the treat they're named after, but they'll certainly delight anyone with even a passing interest in garage rock. Their latest EP, We're Set, is a melting pot of dirty, fuzzy, slightly sloppy rock n' roll: the party punk blast of "Wherever You Are" kicks things off with a blistering pace; "Mexico" sounds like a drunken Strokes track cut from Is This It; and "Surfer Girl" is sonically miles away from the Beach Boys tune of the same name, with its lo-fi production and punchy beat. "Wild" is the [...]
