​Premiere: Talkie​ - Songs From the Hablas (Acoustic) + Play Great America Music Hall - 4/8

​It is always a pleasure to premiere new music. Today we are happy to share an acoustic version of the San Francisco based band, Talkie´s EP, ​Songs From the Hablas. Enjoy this well produced, acoustic album and make sure you check them out live at Great American Music Hall on April 8th with Sunrunners, Meet Me in Orbit and St. Ranger!​​

"Shortly after releasing Hablas, we were invited to play at Super Bowl City. We showed up, and there wasn't much room, nor enough juice to power all the amps. We ended up playing the set acoustically and realized it sounded rather good. A few days later, we tracked our favorites in the studio. Bang."​​​ - Talkie

Watch Rikroshi's Melancholic and Symbolism-Heavy Video for "Drug Lords"

Rikroshi is a band that seems like they get more polished in an exponential way with every new thing they put out. Recently that has included their full self-titled album that we previewed at The Deli last October, and which was fully released in early February, as well as a gripping new video for track "Drug Lords" from that release.

We've got the latter here for you today, and it is damn well-made. "Drug Lords" is heavily impressionistic and full of almost-grim symbolism that's yet somehow darkly comforting. Concentric collapsing circles, shots of weathered statues and religious symbols, and a triptych of the same image of the sun's strangely muted body sitting over the ocean (that coincides with the dramatic climbing piano climax of "Drug Lords") couple with a semi-transparent image of Bjork-influenced singer Tessa Bennetch that has her face mostly out of frame and looking away from camera as she sings, all of which is masterfully cut together for a video that combines with its song in a ideal and fitting way.

"Drug Lords" is the rare music video that takes an already-good song and amplifies its aesthetic, making it feel like this is the true version of the piece, it adds that much to it. Give it a watch below, and let it envelop you in its mood and symbols, and head over to Rikroshi's Bandcamp for more from this strong album.

Cherry EP Release Show at KFN April 3

After the disbandment of Kite Party in 2014, Russell Edling continued working on new material that would eventually fall under the umbrella of his new project Cherry. This past February, he released its debut EP Gloom (which consisted of three lo-fi, slacker-rock/pop originals and a cover of Fugazi's "I'm So Tired") via Philly indie label Lame-O Records. They'll finally get a chance to celebrate its arrival this evening at Kung Fu Necktie, where Cherry will be joined by labelmate Lowercase Roses as well as Cave People and Sun Organ. Tonight's bill is certainly not a bad way to cap off a good weekend! Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $6, 21+ (Photo by Craig Scheihing) - H.M. Kauffman

Frenchgirls Cover The Strokes The End Has No End

The San Francisco based band, French Girls have released a cover of The Strokes´ The End Has No End. Take a listen and check them out TONIGHT at Hemlock Tavern with Everyone is Dirty and Fever Feel!

¨The sound of our previous albums have ranged from surf rock to grunge, but we have spent the last year retooling our sound. These days our sound is somewhere in the middle of a 3 way standoff between T-Rex, Tame Impala, and The Talking Heads. Because we’ve been been hard at work developing an art direction to exist along side of our new album, our singles have been taking awhile to release. To make up for our lack of releasing anything new, I’ve recently produced a cover of The Strokes’ “The End Has No End” and had artist Oakland artist Salina Shelton design a single cover to accompany it.¨ -Charlie of Frenchgirls

Weekend Warrior, April 1 - 3

Michelle Zuaner (Little Big League, Post Post) is celebrating the debut label release, Pychopomp (Yellow K Records), from her solo project Japanese Breakfast at Ortlieb’s tonight. The new venture shows a radically contrasting side to Zauner as a songwriter through its use of experimental textures, pads, and loops. Compared to the dynamic energy of the guitar-driven Little Big League, Japanese Breakfast is airy and subdued with sonic nuances. The synth work brings to mind bands like Small Black or Brothertiger, but the songs have more of the carefree charm of The Sundays or Saint Etienne. Joining Japanese Breakfast this evening will be Littler, the fuzzy, poppy, punky band that sounds like the projected approximation of Veruca Salt in the universe where they subsequently became a twee band. Myrrias will also be also performing, bringing a psychedelic slant to the bill, with dark atmospherics and droning, interweaving melodies. Ortlieb’s, 847 N. 3rd St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Bryce Woodcock
