The Dandelion War
The Dandelion War
"The Dandelion War successfully does the airy, Radiohead meets Sigur Ros thing, though not as long-winded. Like other bands in the genre, dynamics shift between multi-instruments, and strong beats provide a solid backdrop for the melodies. The vocals sometimes give way to the playing, which will keep the band from leaning into Coldplay territory. It sounds like they think that's a good thing."
-Oakland Tribune
Books on Tape
Books on Tape
Books on Tape is the solo moniker of the San Francisco artist Adam Dishart (formerly of the Catholic Comb). Playing pop music tinged with melancholy, Books on Tape showcases Dishart's penchant for 80's-era pop and his ability to "capture the alienation and wistfulness of youth." It is a sound inspired by the Pogues, Echo and the Bunnymen, Smashing Pumpkins and Nick Drake.
Der Spazm
Der Spazm
Der Spazm is an indie/experimental rock band from Sacramento,CA – Between the border of all out rock and the music of Battles or Mars Volta, you’ll find Der Spazm. The band is loud, expansive, but can tighten up around a verse that’s pure rock. The band has excellent musicianship, originality, and enough flexibility and tight groove among the members to catapult them light years beyond safe orbit into unchartered territory; to a dissonant universe where not just anyone can play.
