Bay Babes: Tricycle Records Releases Compilation Vol. 9

Our friends at Tricycle Records released their 9th compilation album this month featuring a whole lotta women that we dig on. There’s Kendra McKinley, whose “Asleep in Winter” showcases her connective and empathetic lyrics in funky pop with looping pedal work (Performed by Kendra McKinley, recorded and mixed by Scott McDowell at the Henry Miller Memorial Library).

We dig on Micropixie’s “Dark Sight of the Moon,” with its Pink Floyd inspirations and the powerful push against modern day politics on the home front and beyond. It’s electro psych pop dripping with social justice narratives. If you haven't caught it yet, check out her video for "Como Minimo," shot at our beloved Lovejoy's Tea Room in San Francisco. 

Another favorite is Beckylin and Her Druthers with “You Ain’t Woman Enough”…to take my man. Damn straight. A nice and exciting find for any country fans. Beckylin and Her Druthers are bluegrass and twangin’ and powerfully sassy. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

   

Micropixie’s “Como Mínimo” Video

San Francisco’s Micropixie creates spacey warm sounds with a sixties French psych pop feel. It’s a multilingual, multi-genre listening experience addressing social norms, masculinity, and gender and cultural identity. The video for “Como Mínimo” is a captivating and thought-provoking viewing experience that we recommend. Singles have been sprinkling out of upcoming album Dark Sight of the Moon and we’re bracing ourselves for the full release this week. Out the third of May. - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor
