Farallons performing at Rickshaw Stop with Michael Musika

The Rickshaw Stop is hosting a stellar lineup this Wednesday, November 13, headlined by San Francisco's own Farallons. The dream-surf outfit released one of my favorite EPs of the year, Outer Sunsets, back in July, capturing a warm, dark, California-drenched sound that perfectly encapsulates the subtle beauty of where it was created: the often overlooked coastal fringe of the city. You can hear the entire record over at Farallons' Bandcamp page, but as is the case with most bands, you need to see them live to really digest the charming, effortless interplay of lead vocalist and guitarist Andrew Brennan and singer/keyboardist Aubrey [...]

Lonesome Leash, Emily Jane White, Michael Musika at Viracocha 1/19/13

As someone who dabbles in the accordionistic arts (by the way, did I mention how cool I am?), I may get a little testy with you if you suggest to me that accordions are nothing but loud, obnoxious noise machines. I mean, they can be, if that’s what you’re going for, but accordions are far more versatile instruments than people give them credit for. Walt McClements, known for his participation in such projects as Dark Dark Dark and Why Are We Building Such a Big Ship?, seems like a man who understands this. Under the name Lonesome Leash, McClements takes [...]

Michael Musika releases Spells on Friday, 3/18/11

Michael Musika @ Chasing The Moon 6.07.09 from Scott McDowell on Vimeo. As the story goes, San Francisco's Michael Musika was stranded on the side of a road in Colorado, when a coyote approached him and told him a story. That parable, we're told, inspired him to begin playing music and, ultimately, to create his debut album, Spells. The album, an ambitious series of avant folk vignettes, is the result of two and a half years of work, and you can stream and buy it above. Friday night, Musika's having a record release show at the Rickshaw Stop (8:30pm, $12), [...]
