Monkey King Records is now offering digital downloads of VOCO's debut recording, Walcott Sessions, on Bandcamp.
Edgetone Records and Monkey King Records will release the Walcott Sessions CD in January of 2017.

Since 2011, Voco has strived to push the edges of music and the conventional expectations of the power trio. Drawing on an extensive wealth of musical and thematic influences stretching deep into the past, and far into the imagined future, VOCO puts forth 10 original compositions that contort conventional riff-based instrumental rock as they shift genre, tempo, time signature, and dynamics. Listeners will find themselves enwrapped in Zappa-esqe guitar solos, beaten by Norwegian Black Metal influenced blastbeats, and stimulated with sounds spanning from delicate soft passages to atmospheric re-entry. VOCO is comprised of guitar, bass and drums but frequently enlist guests from the local experimental jazz scene, and modular synthesis sound laboratories. Improvisation is a core element of the band's composition process, as well as live performance. VOCO's music is written to challenge, expand, and develop the artists' vision of instrumental and cinematic music. Walcott Sessions is a window to VOCO's musical world that captures a moment in the bands constant evolution of composition and improvisation.


VOCO- Walcott Sessions is available now through Bandcamp, Monkey King Records, and Edgetone Records.
Freak Tank
Freak Tank
Freak Tank begins with guitarist Gabriel Bloom, a third generation native of San Francisco who exercised his ability to create hard, driving guitar riffs from scratch and tailor them to please the ears of any true-hearted rocker. When joined more recently by his brother (bassist) Josh Bloom AKA "The Bloomboxxx", drummer and 20 year pro, Josh Jones and vocalist Stu Davis, a common vision was born with a uniquely mutable structure. Freak Tank's success begin's with performing on the main stage at the Haight Street Fair as the "Battle of Bands" winner, 2015.
