The Sandwitches – ‘Duck Duck Goose’ EP out on Secret Seven Records

Either The Sandwitches have some longstanding resentment against the lullabies they heard as little girls, or they just felt like taking something bright and putting a lampshade on it. The Duck Duck Goose EP (Secret Seven Records/Empty Cellar) will have a 500-quantity run on vinyl and is available for preorder, shipping July 13. From Secret Seven: On their latest Vinyl release, Heidi and Grace from San Francisco's The Sandwitches perform four heartbreaking acoustic lullabies interwoven with the spookiest sessions of Duck Duck Goose! ever caught on tape. Recorded and Produced by Wymond Miles (The Fresh & Onlys) and The Sandwitches, [...]

Media Monday: videos from LoveLikeFire, The Sandwitches, Stripmall Architecture, and more

Every few weeks comes the necessary roundup of recent media from Bay Area bands. Check out this grab bag of videos from local groups. It's difficult to believe that LoveLikeFire are only just releasing their debut album now, given the attention and praise they've managed to collect within the Bay Area and beyond over the past couple of years. And yet, Tear Ourselves Away officially comes out in the US this week, as produced by Bill Racine (Mates of State, Rogue Wave) and recorded locally at Tiny Telephone. Check out the above video, from 2009, for "William," the album's lush, [...]

Noise Pop 2010: Harlem, Best Coast, The Sandwitches, Young Prisms @ Cafe du Nord

True to the nature of a show sponsored by the Columbus of uncharted music exploration, Gorilla vs. Bear's Noise Pop show took bands steaming with potential and gave them pure opportunity to shine. Du Nord's buzzing crowd last night was certainly lucky to see these bands in their SF festival debuts, and be able to say we all watched them grow. This applies to both local bands The Sandwitches and Young Prisms, whose introverted stage presence was very endearing. Though to a thinner crowd than the venue's sold out capacity predicted, Young Prisms put on a smooth delivery to their [...]
