From the digital submissions: Bay Area producer Alec Lee releases 'Life in Pastel' EP

With electronic music becoming more popular than ever, it’s not surprising that bedroom artists are popping up all over the country. What is notable, though, is the producer that actually gets out of the bedroom and plays a live show. California native Alec Lee is of this rare breed, performing his soulful, Chet Faker-inspired electro-pop across the Bay Area, opening up for acts like Smash Mouth and Tender. His newest EP Life in Pastel is a cross-section of all his best qualities as a creator. His singer-songwriter side comes out in “I’ll Be Ready,” a stripped-down track that straddles the line between soul and pop, while “Found You” (streaming below) is a full-out explosion of upbeat electronica. - Lilly Milman

SF Artist on the Rise: Future Twin brings activist electro-pop to KWTF Sonoma County, 10.15

Jean Jeanie, of the avant-pop project Future Twin, offers up a deliciously synthy power ballad in new song “Head Like a Halo.” Future Twin’s music is above all else fueled by activism and social theory.

This is clear in her single’s 360˚ music video that was filmed in a living art installation on the night of the presidential election. The video captures the frenzied energy of that night and its kaleidoscope of emotions, all of which are fueled by the lyrics insisting on the need to step back from the computer and interact with others off-screen. You can catch Future Twin at KWTF Sonoma County on 10.15. --Amanda Ogea





Saturn Rising creates powerful, avant-R&B

Saturn Rising produces moody R&B that sounds as astral as his name suggests. The singer/dancer crafts dreamy, dark soundscapes that strike powerfully on the rawest of human experiences, while still managing to fit in against other club bangers. The musical prowess and fierce individuality of Saturn Rising makes his music a must-listen, so be sure to stream him below.-Olivia Sisinni

Fresh Buzz! Tino Drima drops LP "Her Kind of Man", plays Verdi Club 9/22

"Tino Drima is a cauldron of then, now, and what will be" boasts the band's profile. Though that may be a lofty statement for an artist to make, there's no denying that Tino Drima has the uncanny ability to effortlessly wade through multiple styles, feels, and time periods with their music. Frontman Gregory DiMartino's crooning vocals are as enchanting as they are distant, and the band's instrumentals manage to pull off both a laid-back effortlessness, and driving, visceral rock 'n' roll. The band's new album dropping 9/22, Her Kind of Man, is a hearty mix of lax, cool-kid ballads and borderline-experimental doo-wop anthems that leave us scrambling trying to choose a favorite. Listen to Tino Drima streaming below and catch the band live at the Verdi Club 9/22.-Olivia Sisinni
