Tamaryn (Podcast #230)

Tamaryn (Podcast #230) This week's podcast profiles Tamaryn, the duo of singer Tamaryn and producer Rex John Shelverton (Vue, Bellavista, Portraits of Past), whose debut full length The Waves is out now on Mexican Summer. After some singles and an EP born of a bicoastal partnership, Tamaryn left New York to come out west and create The Waves. The album is simply stunning, blending haunting Gothic tones and the lush sonic environs of shoegaze with a strong dose of dreamy melodic pop. The pair's collaborative dynamic, evident in our interview, is surely one of the secrets to The Waves' success. [...]

Sade Sundays: Leggo My Eggo, Season Three.

Part One: Joshua Rampage Mike "In Case You Didn’t Know I’m The Big King Over Here" Tapscott managed to leave work early (read: his 4-Square round-robby was cancelled) so we could play miniature golf and savor the remaining pockets of heat in the Bay Area. After an aberration of abbreviated warmth, things are back to 55F and foggy in SF, just the way nature designed this coastal town in Northern California.

Tamaryn releases The Waves

Tamaryn - "Love Fade" Tamaryn - "Mild Confusion" The Waves, the debut full length of shoegazey pop from San Francisco's Tamaryn, is out now digitally, with vinyl coming on September 14th on Mexican Summer.

Tamaryn has a record release show on September 15th at the Elbo Room (9pm, [...]
