http://media.libsyn.com/media/thebaybridged/Veteran_Artists_Mixtape.mp3 Download: Mixtape: New Music from Longtime Bay Area Artists (Podcast #413) Between streaming music services and social media, it feels easier than ever to find and consume an endless supply of new bands. But all of that access can also make it more challenging to find the time to keep up with previous favorites. There are plenty of good reasons to get excited about young bands, debut albums, and the prospect of discovering emerging artists, but there's also something uniquely rewarding to watching a great musician's career evolve over time. This mixtape collects new and recent music from twelve [...]

Flashback: Revisit our East Bay-only mixtape from 2011

Reflecting is always a worthwhile exercise, especially when it comes to music scenes and bands. So join us today and listen to a mixtape from The Bay Bridged that went live four years ago featuring only East Bay acts. The track listing is an awesome mix of still-active and retired groups — all of whom will provide some ear-candy for those of us feeling a little nostalgic today. http://media.libsyn.com/media/thebaybridged/East_Bay_Only_Mixtape.mp3 Here's the text from the 2011 post: This podcast episode is part mixtape and part mea culpa. Even though our name is The Bay Bridged, we periodically get people calling us [...]

#TBT: Watch Aesop Rock and Religious Girls perform at Phono del Sol in 2011

In honor of #TBT, we're throwing it all way the back to 2011 when Phono del Sol was a brand new festival with six bands on the bill: Aesop Rock Mirah Man/Miracle Magik*Magik Orchestra Religious Girls Appetite While the festival has grown significantly over the last five years — we're now looking at 10 food trucks instead of one, 11 bands instead of six, and two beer gardens versus zero — we think the videos below capture the original D.I.Y. energy and focus that led to the creation of Phono del Sol in 2011 as the brainchild of The Bay Bridged [...]

Religious Girls to headline Great American Music Hall

Religious Girls is a three piece experimental indie band from Oakland, California. Their sound is hard, melodic, and a motley blend of different textures, and styles. The trio's most recent release, I Want To Believe, infuses electronic elements such as keyboards and synths, a hard, intense rhythmic section, and screaming vocals into a cacophony of addicting sound. Each song on the album spans about five minutes, and contains euphoric peaks and declines. Using a combination of electronic indie and math rock, Religious Girls curate a sound that is mesmerizing. Vocals are replaced by screams, chants, and melodic hums, and each element comes together [...]

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 [...]
