Video Premiere: Trebuchet dress up for new single “Failing Up”

You might say that 2020 has been a crazy year for Trebuchet. Since the dawn of the new decade, the North Bay indie rockers have welcomed a newborn into the world, endured career-threatening medical issues, witnessed a bold attempt to kill rock music, not to mention survived a worldwide pandemic that has left scorched earth where there once stood a music scene. And despite all of it, the band is dropping a new record this year. Entitled It's Fine, I'm Fine, the band's third LP continues where they left off with 2017's Volte-Face; weaving three-part vocal harmonies, intricate guitar hooks, and [...]

Though there are still touches of psych rock a la Sleepy Sun, Evan Myall is full of sweet harmonies, warm strings, a gentle touch of the space synth (“Weep” even has a grungy feel). Track “Forever Mine” has great lyrical concepts and cute harmonies like the kiss of a Beach Boy in the background. Throughout the album [...]

The 2020 Noise Pop festival just announced Phase 3 of the music lineup for the 28th annual event, happening from Monday, February 24 to Sunday, March 1 throughout San Francisco. Next year is slated to have a bigger and more diverse lineup than we’ve seen yet. For the first time, the festival will host a four-night series at SFJAZZ’s Joe Henderson Lab.

Resavoir, led by composer and trumpeter Will Miller (Whitney), is [...]
