Crosswalk Anarchy release long awaited, mind bending new album “Composite”

Crosswalk Anarchy somehow manage to stuff all of their influences into their music. With elements of out-jazz, angular prog, vibey hip-hop grooves, and new age fusion, the five piece fuse their diverse compositions together with grace and precision. Their newest release, a full length album titled Composite, is a mind bending, genre hopping journey, chocked full of deeply jagged grooves (courtesy of composer Evan Waaramaa) and transcendent highs peaks (driven by talented vocalist Songyi Jeon). Stream the album below. -Charley Ruddell

Kick off 2018 with Milk Was A Bad Choice (1/3)

If you’ve already cycled through your usual list of New Year’s resolutions and none of them seem worthwhile, then you’ve come to the right place. The Deli SF has the perfect idea for what to change in 2018: go to more local shows! Thankfully, the monthly Milk Was A Bad Choice showcase is giving you the perfect place to start, with a lineup that cannot be missed!

The January installation of MWABC will feature the R&B-infused pop of Sacramento’s So Much Light, who recently released the whimsical, electronic-heavy LP Oh, Yuck. There will also be performances by SF locals Le VICE, a truly one-of-a-kind act that creates an eclectic mix of hip-hop, pop, and soul. Bassist and songwriter Alex Szotak, who has previously worked with other favorites BOSCO and Soft Glas, will also be making his live debut. - Lilly Milman

Make sure to start the year off right by stopping by the Milk Bar on January 3rd, and until then, stream one of Le VICE’s past live performances below.

New Lunacy EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Despite one’s best efforts, everything isn’t always bright and bubbly; in contrast, it can be quite the opposite. Rather than avoiding the chaotic darkness, Lunacy's new EP, Disposition, invites you to steer directly into it. Released via Black Verb Records, Mental Healing and Funeral Party Records, the release engulfs the listener in a cloud of ominous, futuristic ambience. Succumb to the swirling haunt of uncertainty.

Catman, RVRSR rival LA beat scene with “Garden”

In early October, experimental beatmaker Christian Tremblay, otherwise known as Catman, released his crisp debut EP Liminal, a collection of hazy, glitched out beats reminiscent of Los Angeles beatmakers Flying Lotus and Mndsgn. “Garden”, a single song collaboration between Tremblay and heady guitar-smith RVRSR, was released in late November on SoundCloud. While still capitalizing on the Catman beat model of stutter steps and whirling synths, RVRSR brings a soft, cool edge to the bubbling track. Listen below. - Charley Ruddell

Jelani Sei plays prog-R&B at Trans-Pecos 12.23

The last few years have seen a rise in experimental, genre-bending, independently produced music. Perhaps this is due to the internet’s ability to access almost any music instantly, or maybe the breadth of music already created pushes artists towards a disregard for barriers of style. The disappearance of label-driven artist development might be part of it too. Whatever the cause, the NYC scene is producing a lot of incredibly innovative music — and Jelani Sei is part of this phenomenon. The Connecticut/New York group plays soulful, hip-hop and jazz inspired music with a flair for indie and alt rock traditions. Without abandoning the approachable framework of pop music, Jelani Sei has created a complex and intelligent sound. You can hear the group’s idiosyncratic style opening for T-Rextasy on December 23rd at Trans-Pecos. – Cameron Carr
