San Francisco’s Sean Duncan, aka Kid Mud, just released his first EP ‘Birds Will Move In’. I really like this album. It has a mellow Sparklehorse feel. He records much of his work in his home studio and plays each instruments himself. Very cool.
Listen to ‘Press it Out’
Lady Genius’ short, layered pop songs feature shimmering keyboards and echoing guitars coupled with crisp drums and boy/girl harmonies. A SF Weekly article recently put it, “the result is like the Magnetic Fields crash-landing a flying saucer in New Pornoghraphers-land.”
Listen to ‘New York Through York’
This San Francisco-based trio has already built a following around town with their energetic live performances of avant-electronic music that fuses psych heavy synths and spacey delays. They’ve toured and opened for the likes of Black Moth Super Rainbow, Modeselektor and Crystal Castles. Their self-titled debut is out now. Drink it up.
