Mixtape: Bay Area Artists, Remixing and Remixed (Podcast #304)

Mixtape: Bay Area Artists, Remixing and Remixed (Podcast #304) All too frequently, remixes are just okay, but when they are great, they're really something special. A truly great remix can shed new light on the original artist's work and stand on its own as a unique creation. That's no easy feat, either, given the tension between staying true to an original song's components and a reworker's desire to create something new and personal. These days, it feels far too easy to get remix fatigue. Reworkings seem to pop up almost immediately after original songs are released, and they can come [...]

Review & Photos: Toro y Moi, Sinkane, Dog Bite, James & Evander @ The Independent, 3/2/13 (Noise Pop 2013)

Toro y Moi (Photo: Mike G.) James & Evander kicked off a night of chill electro/rock at The Independent on Saturday, and they did it with their characteristic laid-back vibe. I love these guys and their house-inspired indie rock tunes. What else can I say that we here at The Bay Bridged haven't already said about James & Evander a million times over the course of the band's incredible past couple of years? It's almost criminal that they were the openers and played to a fraction of the number of people who rolled through The Independent for the second of [...]

Glenn Jackson, one half of Oakland electronic pop duo James & Evander, recently debuted a new solo track called "Save".

Q&A: Bay Brewed performers James & Evander are excited to sip on Anchor & 21st Amendment this Saturday

James & Evander, playing The Bay Brewed this Saturday (tomorrow!), are an electronic pop duo based out of Oakland. The band is no stranger to The Bay Bridged -- they performed at Rock Make Street Festival in 2011, and have been featured many times on the blog this year surrounding the release of their LP Bummer Pop back in May. But don't let the album's title throw you off, the band is capable of loud, heavy beats that will get people moving on Saturday. Plus, they have two things in common with this event: they're local, and they enjoy beer. [...]
