Meklit Performs at Rickshaw Stop on May 6th

The Ethiopian-born, Oakland-based artist Meklit will perform at Rickshaw Stop on May 6th!

Combining Ethiopian jazz influences with soul and pop, Meklit’s music melds complex rhythms with vibrant melodies. Her new album When the People Move, the Music Moves Too will be released on June 23rd through Six Degrees Records, and was produced by multi-grammy winning artist Dan Wilson of Semisonic (Adele, John Legend) and features Andrew Bird as well as the Preservation Hall Jazz Band horns on several tracks.

When the People Move, the Music Moves Too is the result of a fateful encounter Meklit experienced in Addis Ababa with the legendary vibraphonist/composer Mulatu Astatke, who helped spark Ethiopia’s 1960s musical renaissance. She was deeply engaged with his music at the time, but he pushed her to think about how to bring her own experiences into her songs - “He was very pointed with me, saying several times ‘You keep innovating!’” she recalls. “He took me to task and he tasked me. It took me a while to digest that. It’s a big thing to have someone like that say that to you. I sat with it for a couple of years.”

The Undercurrent Releases New Music Video - Waves

The San Francisco based band, The Undercurrent, has released a new music video for their first single, Waves, from their upcoming EP. The song and video embody the band's soulful, indie pop sound with a distinctive California vibe. This new Bay Area duo cleverly combines driving beats, layered guitar riffs, and distinctive melodies, by tying them all together with heartfelt lyrics. The Undercurrent is currently working on their first EP, Lost in the Haze, expected to be released Fall 2017.

As a multi-instrumentalist and producer, Paul is able to both craft and record complex guitar parts, compelling bass lines, and dynamic drum beats, whilst maintaining a keen ear for detail and balance. Wendy's expressive and soulful voice spans.

PREMIERE: Keeper Keeper - "Sticky Bomb"

Fun loving alternative surf trio Keeper Keeper are coming out with a brand new EP in a couple of days, and today they're sharing a new track to go along with it.

"Sticky Bomb" is the second song from their upcoming Paradigm EP. The track boasts an excitable, beach-cowboy feel while being a mixture between a song of love and a song of lust. About the song, the band share that "'Sticky Bomb' is an ode to one sexy creature named Anna with a firecracker tattooed on her perfect ass!" Fun and fiery, this track and "White Bear," the first to be released, give good insight into what the rest of the Paradigm EP sounds like.

Keeper Keeper is having their release show for the new mini collection of songs this Saturday at Kelly's Olympian. Playing with them will be Mobilities, Salo Panto and Low Flyer. Snag tickets to the show for just $5 so you can catch them before they hit the road next month on a tour in support of the EP.

Blaire Alise & The Bombshells play Trans Pecos on May 4th

In case you haven't felt like the Sixties have returned in some way, perhaps Detroit-raised and NYC-based Blaire Alise & The Bombshells can change your mind. The 20-year-old mod-pop artist and her band will bring their brand of garage pop nostalgia to Trans Pecos in Ridgewood on May 4th to promote their new album, My Eye. The LP came out online in February, but the Trans Pecos show will celebrate its official release. Other acts on the bill include fellow dreamy acts Gold Child and The Cutouts, as well as a DJ set by production duo Discochic.

Blaire and her band have released the video for "Rolleiflex", a Lesley Gore-inspired track with all of the rollerskate rink aesthetic and jangle pop charm of the mid-60s. You can stream it below. - Will Sisskind
