mp3: Cocktails :: “Let it Come Down”

Very into the new Cocktails demo The Bedroom Sessions, which you can listen to now over on Soundcloud. Uplifting + throbbing, scuzzy jams that pick up where the now-defunct Bare Wires left off. Listen to the whole thing here. The next Cocktails show is slated for May 30th with fellow slop-poppers Kids on a Crime Spree at El Rio – RSVP for that show here.

Ty Segall playing free show Friday @ UC Berkeley

A month after Thee Oh Sees pre-emptively shut down UC Berkeley’s Sproul Plaza, SUPERB has announced another free afternoon concert, this time with Ty Segall joining Crystal Antlers at Sproul Plaza this Friday at 5pm. RSVP at the Facebook event here. Hat tip: SFitall. Why didn’t they have this shit when I was still in school?

Positive Destruction turns 1 year old

mp3 premiere: Swiftumz :: “Willy”

Here’s the extremely uplifting and heartfelt new single from Swiftumz, following up on his wonderfully understated debut album on Holy Mountain last year. Swiftumz plays in support of a fantastic bill at Verdi Club at the end of next month (also featuring LA-via-SF trio Wet Illustrated and The Mallard). RSVP for that show over here. Watch the video for “More Than Sleep” below:

mp3 premiere: Cool Ghouls :: “Ghost Song”

Here’s a slow-burning psych jam from our buds in Cool Ghouls,  to appear on the band’s debut self-titled LP due out this summer. The Ghouls are on a couple of solid bills later this month – they play a 4/20 Save KUSF benefit at Benders (RSVP here) with Uzi Rash and later in the month at Sugar Mountain with Shannon and the Clams – RSVP for the Oakland show here.
