Søndags blends genres with breezy Bay-area pop

Bay-area indie pop band Søndags recently released a new track called "Haunted Paradise." The song is a mellow homage to myriad genres: the reverb-laden guitars and distant drums are reminiscent of Motown and surf rock, and Jason Swihart's vocals invoke Joy Division and The Kinks. It's an understated yet self-assured pop song, clocking in at just under two and a half minutes. Follow the link to hear "Haunted Paradise," and listen to "Ghost Woman" below! - Ethan Ames

Urban Theory throws a birthday show in Santa Cruz Friday 07.21

Urban Theory, local to Santa Cruz, CA, plans on packing The Crepe Place this coming Friday, July 21. The four-piece rock and roll recruited two of their favorite local bands, the sinfully satisfying sounds of The Redlight District and the up-beat funk of Ginger & Juice, to help celebrate the 23rd birthday of lead singer and guitarist Ryan Cummings. Get there early as this triple header of local talent will sell out. - Joshua Huver





Harry & the Hitmen: classic soul for contemporary ears

Harry & the Hitmen are a soul-laden six piece that rely heavily on lighthearted, loose takes on some of the most influential sounds of Motown. Each member is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist and well-versed in on-the-spot improvisation, making every experience a unique and certifiable hit. Last fall they released their debut album, Deep In Your Soul, and are gearing up for a string of live dates this fall. - Joshua D. Huver
