Yalls joins Emily Reo & more for Pro Fans showcase at DNA Loft

Emily Reo and Cuddle Formation (Noah Klein) are winding down their TOUR64 road trip with Peace Arrow. The three artists will perform at Professional Fans Showcase 011 with Berkeley's Yalls on Thursday, September 19 at the DNA Lounge Loft. Dan Casey has been busy balancing his new acoustic side project with his well-established art-pop persona Yalls, and will hopefully be reprising some the new material he debuted at Push The Feeling earlier this month (whilst donning a spiffy tank top). Emily Reo and Cuddle Formation are both heavily involved in the FMLY collective, and are currently relocating from Boston to [...]

Push The Feeling this Saturday with Exray's & Yalls

Push The Feeling is back at Underground SF this Saturday with live performances from local favorites Exray's and Yalls, plus DJ sets from YR SKULL and epicsauce. San Francisco duo Exray's have been working on a unique project called Vessel XII, an experimental audio-video endeavor with a sci-fi angle (stay up to date with their Tumblr), and their Trust a Robot LP was released last year. Exray's also did a cover of "Invisible Forces" by The Fresh & Onlys, which you can hear below. Berkeley powerhouse Dan Casey will return to Push The Feeling as Yalls, his electronic-pop alter ego, [...]

Mixtape: Bay Area Artists, Remixing and Remixed (Podcast #304)

Mixtape: Bay Area Artists, Remixing and Remixed (Podcast #304) All too frequently, remixes are just okay, but when they are great, they're really something special. A truly great remix can shed new light on the original artist's work and stand on its own as a unique creation. That's no easy feat, either, given the tension between staying true to an original song's components and a reworker's desire to create something new and personal. These days, it feels far too easy to get remix fatigue. Reworkings seem to pop up almost immediately after original songs are released, and they can come [...]

Yalls releases new digital EP 'The Voice'

The increasingly prolific Berkeley-via-Jersey pop experimentalist Yalls just released a brand new digital EP called The Voice (no relation to the shitty singing competition), and you can pay what you want on Bandcamp to download the album's eight, mostly sample-driven electronic cuts. Fans may recognize a few of the tracks (such as opener "Dark Wing" and standout "Remember") from SoundCloud and recent live shows, but they have since been mixed exclusively for this release. Some of the songs on this ep have popped up on my soundcloud over the months but all have been mixed and made to ball harder.— [...]

Yalls – "Dark Wing"

The Oakland electronic project Yalls seems to have very few dull moments. Dan Casey has released numerous records out of his apartment studio, while simultaneously actively working on his more indie rock side project, Steezy Ray Vibes. "Dark Wing" is perfectly indicative of the direction the live Yalls sets have been moving lately -- darker, less vocal-driven, with song structures that seem to fold back onto themselves. This track will be on the upcoming Voice EP, which Casey will self-release digitally in the next week. Yalls plays in LA this weekend at the IHEARTCOMIX & ZOOS Presents party with Giraffage, [...]
