This week on Baghdad by the Bay on Pirate Cat Radio, tune in to 87.9 in SF or LA or listen online starting at 8pm:
‘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.”
The Harbours are a band from the Mission District of San Francisco. Beginning in the wake of another band’s hiatus, the Harbours were formed to play & record the songs of M. Zelaya. The songs are lyrical rock music that leans towards 60’s pop and rock as well as modern indie rock. They have one album out and are currently working on releasing their second.
