Murder Murder @ the Handlebar

An empty fuel tank and a flat tire lead two couples down a terror-riddled road to Murder Murder. A cast of twisted individuals with a bloodgrass thirst hailing from the frozen forests of Northern, Ontario. With each slash of a throat or stab through a chest, listen and you can hear Murder Murder behind every gory scene. Watch their lastest video, for their full length album release "From the Stillhouse" on June 25th.  Check out this talented bluegrass, horror ballad bunch @ the Handlebar Wed 6/17 for NXNE.

Jet Trash Releases New Single - Photography is Over

The San Francisco garage surf rock band, Jet Trash has released a new single entitled, Photography is Over. This band has just emerged in the last couple of years, but they're enjoying some nice attention for their upcoming debut self titled EP due out on July 14th on Burger Records imprint, Wiener Records.

Jet Trash know what it means to be a quintessential West Coast band. They proudly carry the torch of their predecessors The Sonics and The Ventures, joining the ranks of aforementioned Bay Area contemporaries Ty Segall and Thee Oh Sees in cranking out modern indie-rock updates on classic ’60s garage-surf. Armed with vintage Fenders and reverb-soaked tube amps, the band’s energetic lo-fi anthems have a youthful immediacy, their massive hooks curling like breaking waves. It’s a sound that has already won the hearts of Jet Trash’s hometown, The Deli SF voting them one of the best up-and-coming bands of 2014 and The Bay Bridged dubbing them “the cream of the crop” of San Francisco locals.

It's nice to see new local bands doing well! Enjoy this summer time rock track that's perfect for jamming while heading to the beach on (rare) hot days in the Bay Area!

Frankie and Jimmy @ This Ain't Hollywood

This 2 piece plays stripped down bluesy folk tunes that come straight from the garage. They released their album "Scream the Blues" in 2013 and it's nothing but fun to listen to. The first tune "Beautiful City" is a dirty blues song mainly utilizing a just kick drum and harmonica. It's quick and to the point. It sets the tone for what's to come. That's when they fire into "Let It Rock" which is a fast paced guitar rocker that's basically a 2 piece Johnny B. Goode. I have heard and seen the name Frankie & Jimmy around town but I had no idea their tunes were this cool. They remind me a lot of King Khan & BBQ Show which is a 2-piece garage oldies type band as well. Frankie & Jimmy hit up This Aint Hollywood on Friday. -Kris"Big City"Gies

Album Review: Lemme Adams - Black Flamingo

The San Francisco based alternative surf rock band, Lemme Adams released a new EP last week. The five track album is entitled Black Flamingo and is a strong follow up to their debut album Gorilla Back.

Lemme Adams, as a band is able to incorporate horns into their dark surf rock sound in a super tasteful manner. The horns never bleed over into playing cheesy ska riffs or come off sounding overly "Mariachi", even when performing music for the Latin themed third track, Venezuela. Jordan Miller's bassy tribal drum beats and Adams' signature vocals make the album familiar and warm in regards to the musical style relating to their previous release. Nonetheless, Adams as a songwriter wrote more about what was going on around him while maintaining a bit of subjectiveness in this collection of songs. You can still pinpoint Adams' perception and opinion about what he's lyrically describing, but he's less emotionally direct than his writing was in the last album.

Adams has the ability to write incredibly cynical songs that don't put you off or seem unnecessarily confrontational. The title track of the album (which houses some nice faux improvised jam outs) along with the second song, Hella seem to be about general disillusionment with social popularity. Both songs talk a lot about friends, and Hella seems to point out "friends" inconsistencies and trivialness. Hella is a Californian slang term that means "a large amount of" and can be easily overused in conversation. The irony of the word is not lost on Adams in regards his parody of how many times the word can be said and heard if one is in a group of young people in Cali.

The third song, Venezuela captures the sunny feel of the South American country as Adams sings about not being able to escape the sharp sunlight. Christmas Spirit goes along with the band's weird theme of writing and performing Christmas music all year around, and of course, Toys, the song of the band's award winning music video has finally made its debut on a recording.

Great record. Good job! Take a listen to Black Flamingo!
