Anaura
Anaura
Anaura is a San Francisco / Bay Area dark rock band, who finds themselves musically squashed between The Cardigans, The Smiths, Jimmy Eats World and Weezer-esque inspired pop gems.

"Each song to follow on Champion of the Moon is just as well-crafted and the guitar tones are shockingly perfect, allowing every note to shine as intended. “Vinyl” is a more distorted, straight-forward pop creation the likes of Weezer, “Blood Letter” contains more arranged vocals that rise and fall in a Beatles or Jellyfish-esque fashion, and “Dark Horse” is chalk full of 90’s goodness as the song pounds its way to a climax as though someone put Sunny Day Real Estate into a blender with U2." – Clayton Lancaster, thefive10.com

Warren Teagarden and The Good Grief
Warren Teagarden once had a dream in which he could not stop talking. He talked and talked and could not control himself. He tried to clench his jaw and close his mouth but it didn't work. He pressed both hands tightly over his lips but it didn't work. He punched himself in the face, bashed his head against the wall, and thew himself to the floor. But none of this worked. He was powerless to control the endless river of words streaming forth. The words he spoke were of purest truth and beauty and contained the wisdom of a thousand Gods. But his words flowed only to the empty darkness of space and were instantly gone forever in the void. Such is life, my friends. Such is life.
