Tricycle Records calls for women-identifying artists to submit music

Babes of the Bay focuses — you guessed it — on female and female-identifying artists from our community. Produced in conjunction with the Women's International Music Network, this year's comp is being organized in the hopes of creating space for [...]

Newly signed The Hot Toddies to play Tricycle Records' holiday party

The Hot Toddies - "Boogie Nights" If you're into talented babes, then you're surely ready for The Hot Toddies. These Oakland ladies emulate an easy and breezy pop rock, a comforting beacon among a bevy of less-talented bands who take themselves far too seriously. Their ten-song album, Get Your Heart On, is a clever blend of retro pop and indie surf rock peppered with witty lyrics. Just signed to Tricycle Records, The Hot Toddies are planning to release an EP next month. Heidi, Erin, Jessica, and Sylvia have been playing music since 2005. Sharing a love of whiskey and more [...]

Best of 2008: Julie Schuchard of Tricycle Records on The Morning Benders’ Talking Through Tin Cans

For years I have been watching The Morning Benders grow up. They have a genuine talent for writing pop that casts a dizzy intoxication much like The Shins and The Beatles. Talking Through Tin Cans is one of those records that I have been anticipating from this young local band. I knew they would do great things. And they did just that. The Morning Benders - "I Was Wrong" This contribution was written by guest blogger Julie Schuchard of Tricycle Records.
