Young Prisms
Young Prisms
Young Prisms is a San Francisco psychedelic/garage/beach-pop band, influenced by the California coast, Charlton Heston, and late night spiritual pow wows. They recorded their self-titled EP in the living room of their apartment in the first half of 2009. On this first spaced-out EP, the band strands its listeners in the solitude of a beach fireworks display with nothing but lights for the tongue and acid for the ears--arresting, colors everywhere. Made up of Matthew Allen, Giovanni Betteo, Jason Hendardy, Stefanie Hodapp, and Jordan Silbert, Young Prisms has been prying minds open with their stellar sounds for less than a year since Silbert made the transition from Detroit to San Francisco The Prisms have released two 12″, one with Brooklyn-based label Mexican Summer and the other with Oakland-based label South Paw Records. Look for 2010 to be a breakout year for these Bay Area rockers.
Boy Friend
Boy Friend
Boy Friend, perhaps in a sardonic dig at their namesake, use the power of distance as their primary tool. Well-placed beats, silky synths and a dreamy vocal swim in layers of delay, using space and volume to create a dynamic and impactful sound.
Alex Bleeker & The Freaks
Alex Bleeker & The Freaks
Known primarily for holding down the low end for Real Estate, Alex Beeker is also the creator of a longing, haunting brand of folk with alt rock inflections. A deft plucker on the six-strings himself, Bleeker marshals a backing band that has included Julian Lynch and other members of Real Estate, an infinitely capable rhythm section that brings a healthy dose of psychedelic twang. An eponymous LP in 2009 released by Underwater Peoples earned him some much-deserved solo respect, and he has since joined the Domino Recording family, leaving the rock community thirsty for a follow-up.
Tanks Amigo
Tanks Amigo
Amidst layers of quavering guitar reverberation and persistent rhythms, tongue-in-cheek lyrics round out Tanks Amigo's infectious vibe. This is music for staying out past your curfew in the bad part of town and loving every minute of it.
