SF´s Heron Oblivion Signs to Sub Pop Records Tours w/ Kurt Vile

The San Francisco based ¨funeral folk¨ band, Heron Oblivion has signed a worldwide record deal with the Seattle based independent record label, Sub Pop Records. Sub Pop was put on the map for releasing music from Nirvana, Mudhoney, The Shins, Band of Horses, Sleater-Kinney and more. It´s always good to see Bay Area emerging artists doing well! Keep your eyes open for their upcoming 2016 release on Sub Pop and their local shows with Kurt Vile:

Oct. 15 - San Francisco, CA - Slims
Oct. 16 - San Francisco, CA - The Fillmore

Heron Oblivion’s origins date to 2013 in SF’s Bayview district, where its four members-- fueled by a love of 60s/70s scuzz and commune jams, folk rock, noise, and P.S.F. Japanese underground—would get together for what Miller describes as "blistering, extended free jam sessions." The four musicians realized that their initial chemistry (which was strong from the outset) was undeniable and it’s vision unified. Heron Oblivion was born.

Ultimately, Heron Oblivion fused song craft to its improvisational leanings. What materialized is a mesmeric compilation of English folk rock and earthy West Coast psychedelia spiked with feedback and explosive dissonant elements. The sum of these elements will make up their Sub Pop debut.

Zodiac Death Valley Celebrates Vinyl Release at BOTH - 10/3

The San Francisco based alternative psych band, Zodiac Death Valley will be celebrating the release of their second album, Desert Bohéme at Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco tomorrow night (October 3rd).

The band will be supported by a great line up that includes: JJUU JJUU (LA), Down and Outlaws (SF) and The Turn Turn Turn (SF members of The Love Dimension, The Lotus Moons, The Gregors). This is going to be one of those nights where you´re going to run into the who´s who of the local music scene.

You´re not going to want to miss Zodiac Death Valley as Nic Abodeely’s entrancing words slither in a deep baritone before thrusting you into honest-to-god rock n’ roll anthemic nirvana and a chorus that will be inside you from then on. Jordan Villa’s guitar work deftly navigates from atmosphere, hook, to solo. Nate Ricker’s keys and organ immediately commands a psychedelic vein pumping throughout the collective musical body. Daniel Burns’ bass comes in crashing the party with a thunderous chug while Landon Cisneros (drums) and Tyler Jones (percussion) bring the drums that will have you hungover the next day.

Head down to Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco tomorrow night!
You can also download the album via iTunes.

Song Premiere: Seth Lael - Big Country

We´re proud to premiere a new song from the San Francisco based singer/songwriter, Seth Lael. Upon the release of his brand new album, Bird Strings, we have an exclusive new track from the album entitled, Big Country. This song is charming, simplistic and fun to listen to!

Seth Lael, a passionate singer-songwriter who has a bit of a soft-spot for the underdog. (don't we all?) Lael brings 12 brand new songs to life in his second full-length, Bird Strings. His music marries Americana, Jazz, Folk, Pop, and Indie Rock into a definitive perspective of life. His commentary comes straight from the tips of his fingers on guitar, mandolin, and banjo, passing through to his modern/retro vocal delivery of honest, heartfelt lyrics.

I’ve spent the last 5 years working as a sound recordist documenting inspiring people ranging from Bobby Seal to the founder of the Black Panthers to Bill Gates. I’ve also spent time with working class folks struggling to make ends meet in hospitals, courtrooms, and on the road learning about what goes on in these 50 states. These songs are my reflections of those experiences. - Lael on his new album, Bird Strings

"After traveling to some of the poorest countries in the world, I began to look more closely at what we have within our own borders. It's been especially eye opening to realize how diverse we are in the US. For example, in my city of San Francisco, you can attend a street fair promoting kinky sex and somewhere else in the same country, you have fairs promoting guns. There is something for everyone, and whether it's viewed as a positive or negative is up to one's personal belief. You don't have these freedoms in most parts of the world, and I find many people could be more appreciative of this." - Lael on Big Country
