Premiere: Smokin’ Ziggurats, “Boysenberry Mind”

Remember Smokin' Ziggurats? Established by members of Social Studies (remember them?), Smokin' Zigurrats lean into more garage-influenced styles, and they're coming back soon with a new record, Face the Jazz.

Smokin’ Ziggurats (mems. of Social Studies and Foli) release EP, announce first SF club show

Smokin' Ziggurats are as mysterious as their name is epic. This photo is their only visual asset so far, and they don't have a Facebook. The details are sparse, but there are some things about them we know for sure: 1) The supergroup is composed of members of San Francisco bands Social Studies and Foli. 2) They definitely know how to craft a blistery garage rock number. 3) We know this because they dropped their first EP, self-titled, on Soundcloud. At one point, you could hear all five songs from this release, but as of writing this post, only two remain. We'll focus [...]
