Baseball Gregg plays Milk Bar May 24

Baseball Gregg is always keeping us on our toes. Just when we’re divining into some sweet n jazzy cabana beats, they switch gears and take us to a poppier place with funky baseline magic. Check out their newest single, “The Movies,” and in case you’re ready for summer, please enjoy their weird and solid music video for “Welcome the Night.” Love us some Wes Andersonian touches like that. They’re playing Milk Bar with Video Age and Max Gardener this Friday May 24. Thanks, Throwin’ Bo’s, for another tasty lineup. - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

 

   

Broke For Free (BFF) releases video that’s weird in a good way

Broke for Free (BFF) just released a fun and weird video for their new track “Jibberish (Feat Awon)" and it is a weird and fun trip we won't even try to explain. Mouths all over the place and we're loving it. The man behind the noise, Tom Cascino, says his influences range from Outkast to Tycho, Modest Mouse to Tyler the Creator. He’s an all over the place hip hop eletro pop creator and “Jibberish” is a perfect introduction to his work. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

 

   

A Deli Premiere: Red Steppes’ “Madera” & June 7th Show

Noise Pop nailed another solid show next month at Cafe du Nord. A power trio of a line up: Red Steppes, Sis, and Range of Light Wilderness. Red Steppes presents a surreal folk with vocal stylings like a less high-pitched Joni Mitchell infused with just the right touch of gentle keys and synths (god bless you, Native Cat, another gem). To be quite frank, it’s beautiful. We’re proud to premier the video for “Madera” here. Stay tuned for much more on Sis and Range of Light Wilderness. - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

   

Abe Hollow’s “Golden Calf”

Abe Hollow just released his first single, “Golden Calf” off the forthcoming A Palace in Time and it’s a calm and lovely surrealist folk song reminiscent of Bon Iver’s compositions and Elliot Smith’s breathy sad vocals but with slightly trippier touches. A Palace in Time, recorded at Tiny Telephone and mastered by Jacob Winik, is a collection of collaborations with musicians from all over the Bay Area, including AH, Andrew Maguire, Doug Stuart, John Vanderslice, and many others. Check out this sweet taste and stayed tuned for his full release this July. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor
