LIVE PERFORMANCE
Oona Garthwaite has been singing for as long as she can remember, and began playing piano when her parents brought one home from the school rummage sale. After foraying into rap, punk and jazz, she eventually returned to her native Oakland and began to co-write her first full-length effort, Shhhhout!, with Dave Tweedie.

On their first album, And How!, the San Francisco trio known as Weather Pending creates deep, sultry, continuously unfolding music with a sound that’s vaguely familiar and surprisingly unique. The band’s electronic grooves and the smoky vocals of singer Janie Oliver draw you in. Bass player and producer Rob Cross accompanies Oliver’s luminous vocals with the dark, melancholy rhythms of hip hop and dub reggae, profound tones that swirl and dance with the elemental force of a restless ocean while guitarist Brian Bloi’s chords color with shimmering overtones that emote with aching melodies. The album’s ten sultry songs have a cinematic, one drop, hip hop flavor driven by the subliminal swing enhanced by guest drummers Max MacVeety (Crown City Rockers, Zion I) and Derek G. Taylor (Nino Moschella, Alice Russell, Hyim, Darondo).

I’m Forrest Day. But my name also represents the nastiest 7-piece band you ever heard. The tracks you hear on this page are me in the studio with some great help from Chocolate O’Brian and Luke Dillon. I’m a beatmaker, songwriter, sax-player, and singer. SINGER!!! Now, however, I am going to record this beautiful band. If you have not been to a show then you are missing out, it is ridiculous! We are at our best now, a year and a half old, and beginning to reach other cities and states. My style is free, and I will continue to do whatever I want! I am going city by city and showing people what we do.

The Greening’s mission statement is to push pop music to new frontiers through their blend of accessible experimentation. Our first stab at this was realized on our debut LP, 2003’s After Shoal Parlor (released on our label, Zairecords–it’s available with secure Paypal checkout here!). And then . . . we went behind the scenes.

LIVE PERFORMANCE
StitchCraft is a story of the way that community creates music and music creates community. Like a communally created quilt, or the feast in the folk tale of Stone Soup; the players of StitchCraft took their name to honor the participation of the muse, the audience, and play with the questions of life, death, adventure and self realization in our human experiences. These musicians have a powerful presence and their visible connection on stage makes their music shine and their audiences attentive.

“Local trio As a People make indie rock that’s as charmingly shambolic as it is blisteringly rockin’. It’s impressive that they can manage to sound so schizophrenic on a three-song EP without altering their sonic palette much from song to song. Luckily, lead vocalist Adam Yas’s theatrical yelp keeps the proceedings from becoming too disjointed. The standout song, “Viktor,” plays with the same loud-quiet dynamics as the rest of the EP by getting groovy when you expect it to simply thrash.” (Aaron Sankin, SF Guardian)
