Listen to Two New Tracks from Fritz Montana

Fritz Montana is a San Francisco based indie blues rock trio laying the foundation for up and coming independent artists in the Bay Area. With uplifting jams and vocals that aim right for your heart, Fritz Montana has mounted a successful career including airplay on San Francisco’s LIVE 105.3 Soundcheck program and a slot on the 2015 BottleRock Napa lineup.

Inspired by their recent growth as musicians, Fritz Montana returns in 2017 with their first EP in two years titled ‘Father Mother,’ detailing concepts of loneliness, confusion, hopelessness, naivete, and an enthusiasm to keep moving forward; the same emotions that drove them to play music. Staying true to their roots, these men have dedicated their lives to the betterment of American music and the creation of heart-melting soulful jams.

Take a listen to two new tracks from their upcoming album, Blood on My Lip and Evil Ways:

The Seshen Prepare to Release New Single, Right Here - 7/14

San Francisco Bay Area-based six-piece The Seshen release the third single, “Right Here”, from their latest album ‘Flames & Figures’ on 14th July via Tru Thoughts. Announcing along with some solo shows and a co-headline West Coast tour with James Supercave, The Seshen’s single boasts the synth-pop gem “Right Here”, a lovers-rock Wrongtom remix of the first single “Distant Heart”, instrumental and a cappella.

In the punchy synth-pop gem “Right Here”, singer Lalin St. Juste tears back layers of non-reality as she searches for her true self. Told by St. Juste, the narrative of the track looks at the illusory spaces that are created for us and how we wrestle with the identities and experiences that grow out of those creations. St. Juste explains: “In Right Here, I’m recognizing the lies that my life is built on, the lies that feel like truth and create a veil of disillusionment. I’m dealing with silence. I’ve lived within it my whole life and I’m ready to break out of it. I’m digging inside to find what’s underneath, beneath the invisibility of my existence and the pain. There is me, there is “us”.” Awash with bursting synth layers, the defiant pop-hooks in “Right Here” come unstuck from the confines of a daydream to revel in a new and honest space.

Until the 4 track single is officially released, take a gander at The Seshen's music video for "Colors Collide":


NOPES Drop New EP - Fun Limbo

Oakland punk band, NOPES released their new EP, Fun Limbo, on May 26 via Magnetic Eye Records. The group, who dubs its sound "weird core", grinds out sneering spazz-rock incorporating melodies and extended instrumental passages not typically found in straightforward punk. Fun Limbo is the follow-up to NOPES' full-length LP, Never Heard of It, which was named as one of the "Best Underground Garage Punk Albums of 2016" by Pitchfork.

While the majority of today's "punk" bands come off as far too polished and safe, NOPES sound like a collision of early Hüsker Dü and The Replacements with nods to The Stooges and fellow Oakland rabble-rousers Lecherous Gaze. The band bases their grimey sound in the low, lumbering crunch of bands like Unsane and The Cows while demented vocals rant over the top of the crumbling racket. The sound of NOPES is one of a band playing by their own rules and having fun doing it.
