Dan Derks "Phylum"

Dan Derks released his latest album, “Phylum”, last week via the new label from Omar Akrouche and Zander Raymond, Proun Press.

This, the labels third release, is lush, warm, ambient music that will playfully fill any space you play it in. It is available digitally, but the 25 cassette tape run has been sold out.

Derks also hosts an amazing local podcast called “Sound + Process” that explores music with those whom create it.

Liam Benzvi channels pop songwriting through psych synth, plays The Dance 10.24

“It’s your birthday in heaven,” Brooklyn-based alternative pop artist Liam Benzvi croons over tactile synth arpeggios and ambient waves on forthcoming extended play Amnesia, USA. It’s a nice encapsulation of what makes Benzvi’s artistry an engrossing listen; there’s a penchant for high melodramatic songwriting that wouldn’t be out of place on the Billboard 100 with an instrumental backbone that’s somewhere between 80s synth-pop and 2010s chillwave. In the same vein, track “The Morning” maintains a Gen-X slow jam quality (and would be the perfect soundtrack for a reboot of any John Hughes film). Listen to them both below, and catch Benzvi’s EP release show on October 24th, supporting Aerial East.

Affectionately releases fall demos

You know someone’s album will be good when you hear their demos and think, oh well now that’s sounding pretty solid. That said, Affectionately just released a wee little collection of demos--some of which you may have heard on other albums before--and it’s a true delight of a listen. “Bedroom Waltz” is a personal favorite, but they’re all impressive with fun with disorienting distortions and pure, pleasing vocals. It’s always fun to hear a little gentler behind-the-scenes of one of the Bay Area’s finer secrets. Check ‘em out and don’t wreck ‘em out. Stay tuned for the full album out, comin' in soon. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

Bear Call's "Harsh"

Bear Call’s latest single, “Harsh” was just released as an end of summer jam and the title is oh-so deceiving. The smooth chill of “Harsh” is a jazzy mellow jam with warm strums and some nice key action with lyrics that are secretly funny. Oh la la, take a dive. Bear Call will be back playing in San Francisco in December playing with Goon at The Knockout. ’Til then, jam on. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor
