East Bay Featured: Oakland, an Arts Space Bounces Back From a Shooting

Naming Gallery in Oakland, California, is a multi-purpose arts space where people congregate on Saturday nights. This 360 documentary explores the how the arts center has become a staple for young artists to congregate, despite the fact that it exists in a historically beleaguered neighborhood. In August 2016, a fatal shooting occurred outside the gallery where hundreds of people were celebrating. “If we let this destroy us as people, we won’t be able to gather, we won’t be able to share art with each other,” says Imari, a musician who is part of the Naming Gallery community. “To stay open is the only thing I can do right now.” It was directed by the Oakland-based Variable Labs.

Sunhaze Releases New Music: Wishful Thinking

Sunhaze has released their debut album entitled, Wishful Thinking. Sunhaze originated from the vision of Danae Labraña, a San Francisco transplant hailing from the shores of Santa Barbara. Fellow San Francisco State alumni Priscilla del Rosario with Erin Walter then added their native Bay Area-influenced elements to a handful of Labraña's singer-songwriter works. The last two additions Brandon Iljas and Aaron Chin completed the lineup soon after and as a group, they began molding their sound.

Jacob Montague Shares New Music Project - Tsutro

San Francisco-based artist/producer Jacob Montague has announced a new project called Tsutro, and will be releasing a self-titled debut LP February 10, 2017. The new Tsutro album—mastered by Dale Becker (Beyonce & Ryan Lewis) and drawing from a diverse collection of sounds including pop, worldbeat, future garage, ambient & downtempo—sounds at first like one band backing a new guest vocalist on each of its 10 songs. But in reality, Montague hasn't even met most of the singers, let alone recorded with them.

"With most of the tracks," he explains, "I took a phrase or two from an existing song, then built all new music around it."

Despite the collage-like approach, Montague is hesitant to call any of the songs remixes—which makes perfect sense considering Tsutro's unified arrangements. As much as the album relies on minimalist electronic textures, there's an unquestionably organic connection between the instrumentation and the carefully curated vocal stems.

Premiere: Mark Nelsen Band - In My Own Defense

Mark Nelsen Band has a new single called In My Own Defense and we're excited to share it with you! We reviewed Mark Nelsen's solo single, Screwball (Change the Weather) two years ago, which is a part of this same collection / album being released. Nonetheless, the songs by Mark Nelsen Band are heavier rock n roll / alternative and bluesy.

"Our newest track 'In My Own Defense' foreshadows the long overdue 'Change The Weather' LP - a collection of heavier, bluesier band recordings from 2012-2015. Finally this album is coming out! This particular song is an upbeat rocker who's remorseful narrator searches for peace of mind under the moonlight. He's unsure why he's guilty and wonders if he really must change. Something like that." - Mark Nelsen
