‘Masculine, Feminine’ is the third long-playing record from acclaimed San Francisco-based pop-sophisticates The Music Lovers and the pinnacle of their artistic endeavors. The Music Lovers are led by transplanted Englishman songwriter Matthew Edwards. Edwards refers to ‘Masculine, Feminine’ as his own personal ‘Day of the Locust’, a travelogue through the underbelly of the almost-famous doyens of LA and San Francisco.

“I want to be someone who people recognize and want to come to see, but stayed true to their art and message through their whole career. I want to be able to tour the world and play sold out shows. I’d love to have some mainstream exposure to subversively bring my ideas into the popular eye, as long as I don’t have to compromise what I’m doing for the sake of popularity. I want to work with more artists that I admire and be known for having one of the most fun live touring shows that has ever hit the road. I’d like to die having put out one of the most original greatest hits albums in the history of the popular music. That would be awesome.”

LIVE PERFORMANCE
Buried in unmarked graves, their ghosts have been called out to in song for more than two centuries. No face, no form, only lonely names – Polly, Sally, Maggie, Eleanor.

With no regard for decency, THE PINE BOX BOYS have raised these poor haints again through new songs of unforgivable deeds, guilt, and loathing. She is repeatedly shot, stabbed, cut, and ground into powder by a nefarious collection of bad men. For the past five years, THE PINE BOX BOYS have been hollering these unsettling and provocative songs at audiences worldwide. Is this legal?

Wooden Shjips, a quartet from San Francisco heavily influenced by the experimentalism of psychedelia, classical minimalism, and garage rock excess, started as an experiment in rhythmic primitivism and group improvisation. The current roster brings a more structured rock approach to its performances, utilizing a traditional lineup of drums (Omar Ahsanuddin), bass (Dusty Jermier), organ (Nash Whalen), guitar (Erik “Ripley” Johnson), and vocals.

After the unexpected deaths of his sister and father, Geographer founder Michael Deni left his hometown in New Jersey for San Francisco. He spent the next several months with his guitar and a synthesizer he found on the street, turning the tragedy that drove him from home into songs rich with emotion and lush melodies. After a packed album release party at San Francisco’s landmark Cafe du Nord that included members of Bright Eyes, and the privilege of being voted one of three “Undiscovered Bands You Need To Hear Now” by SPIN magazine, Geographer is poised on the brink of becoming one of the most exciting newcomers in Indie music.
