Mixtape: Only the East Bay (Podcast #247)

Mixtape: Only the East Bay (Podcast #247) This podcast episode is part mixtape and part mea culpa. Even though our name is The Bay Bridged, we periodically get people calling us out on our SF-centric coverage of Bay Area indie music. In recognition of all of the great music coming from the other side of the Bay, this mix features only East Bay artists--15 of them--spanning a wide variety of styles and sounds. The collection shows that, just like in SF, there's a diverse batch of talent in Oakland and beyond that's well worth checking out. Subscribe to The Bay [...]

Winter’s Fall sign to Velvet Blue Music for new record, ‘At All Angles’

After releasing a few free teaser tracks back in early October, Winter's Fall have announced the official release date for At All Angles, the band's third album to date. And as a bonus? The album will be released via Velvet Blue Music, starting February 15th: There is the thematic linking in the three instrumental songs (beginning, middle, and end) which I'm told imagine a futuristic “surveyor” who discovers and charts new landscapes. Though the real story is not in narratives or lyrics but in the tones and textures that come from the electronics, steel guitar, and math rock-esque time signatures [...]

Birds & Batteries, Winter’s Fall @ Starry Plough Friday

It feels as if this week has been thick with show recommendations, which it has been. Berkeley-bound and rejuvenated with new sets are both San Francisco's Birds & Batteries and Winter's Fall -- they're playing a free show at the Starry Plough on Friday with Forest Floor and The Waste Band (9pm). Winter's Fall will be playing a stripped down, fresh set sampling their upcoming release which was recorded at Sharkbite (Ted Leo, The Aimless Never Miss, Totimoshi). We did a podcast with the band back in 2008 still available to stream. In addition, we like what's available to hear [...]

Hemlock tomorrow: Winter’s Fall, Telegraph Canyon, Manzanita

The Hemlock, bold in their booking style and thankfully so, is hosting a night of high-energy alt-country/folk Thursday (9pm, $7) with local headliners Winter's Fall (Oakland), Telegraph Canyon (TX) and Manzanita. Most can say that Manzanita is a new name to their vocabulary, but anyone with taste in blues, classic rock and Americana can get down with the SF two-piece. Winter's Fall - "Blame" Bay Area-adoring Telegraph Canyon waits patiently until next month when they cross paths with the touring Low Red Land to celebrate the release of their new album The Tide and the Current at home [...]

Our New Artist-in-Residence: Keith Gidlund

We are pleased to show off the work of Keith Gidlund - a local photographer who is also a member of the Berkeley based indie rock band and local favorite, Winter's Fall. A life long Californian, Keith studied photography at SF State while apprenticing with and assisting some of the bay area's most renowned fine art photographers. He's continued as a traditional black and white art contractor, working with a wide range of photographers, galleries and art institutions as well as producing his own work. As a purely traditional based photographer, Keith exclusively uses film cameras and a darkroom to [...]

Best of 2008: Pete Gidlund of Winter’s Fall on Birds & Batteries’ I’ll Never Sleep Again

I love a record that’s a tough one to crack. And speaking of eggs, you gotta have some huevos to lead your album off with a Neil Young cover (not to mention pull it off). And anyone would admit it’s quite a dichotomy: to compare Birds and Batteries’ sunny backstage candor and slick onstage performances with the angular, sometimes counter-intuitive (read: smart, brave) songwriting and production choices heard here, which is why, for me, I’ll Never Sleep Again is the best Bay Area record of 08. Birds & Batteries - "I'll Never Sleep Again" Case-in-point is the way [...]
