June 2015
Bad Braids
"Eye of Night
"
mp3
Eye of Night, the latest album from Bad Braids, the moniker of Megan Biscieglia, offers a record full of hauntingly elegant tales. Co-produced with Jordan Burgis and released on cassette and digitally via Glowing Dagger, the album continues down the enlightening path carved out by its predecessors, Arrow And Orb and Supreme Parallel.
 
“Intro (Fade)” sets the table, delivering a mind-cleansing mantra of sorts - “Proceed and the rest will fade.” The plucking of an acoustic guitar frames a forest-roaming sensation as Paul Christian’s cello and Jordan Burgis’s organ amplify the eerie surroundings. One continues negotiating through the treacherous terrain in “Jackal,” with its ominous howl and stirring blend of shimmering percussion, beautifully sparse guitar, and flute and bells, demonstrating a supernatural echo.
 
Lurking in the shadows is “Mara,” as Biscieglia’s vocals take on a sacred air, a call to action delivered as a beautiful comforting chant addressed at the listener - “All come forward to the start of sea/Lay down, lay down with me,” the uncertainty of the musical surroundings are fleshed out as the guitar lead is supplemented by the creepy installments of organ & EWI and lingering vocals.
 
“Wild Flowers” develops from a peaceful origin, gathering the momentum from percussion as the guitar riff escalates in intensity before easing off and then making a controlled push. “Fever Dream Powers” utilizes the ethereal combination of EWI, theremin and saw, taking the folk aesthetic and enhancing it through the swirling textures the instruments create. The album closer, “Glory, Glory,” retains an unsettling element triggering a cautious burst of adrenaline.
 
Eye of Night finds Bad Braids pulling listeners into the unknown, led by Biscieglia’s alluring vocals that hint at warmth and comfort. While the surroundings suggest the presence of ghostly dangers, one can’t help but climb deeper into the thicket. - Michael Colavita

The Stone Foxes Release New Album February 12th, Rock SXSW March 15th

Like contemporaries The Black Keys, The Steepwater Band, and The Black Angels, SF’s The Stone Foxes summon the days of hard-driven blues-rock.

Their full-length album Small Fires, set to release February 12th, is suffused with fuzzy guitar riffs, heavy, seductive vocals and dark, simple choruses. Their single “Everybody Knows” alludes to Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Tell-Tale Heart,” weaving a sinister theme into a hard-hitting, disconsolate song. Small Fires delivers as pure a dose of rock as can be found today—gritty, spacious, and to-the-point.

Check them out at Amoeba Records on the 12th or in Oakland at the New Parish Music Hall on the 13th. - Tina Aita
