The She’s Drop New Video

Much has been said on ATH about San Francisco indie rockers The She’s over the last couple of years or so. It’s clear we are fans right? I’m continuing our fandom of the band with this sweet new single and video for “Sorry”. I love how this band can trick you into thinking this is going to be just simple, sort of upbeat indie rock song, but then they drop in a bridge about 2.5 minutes in with some heavily distorted guitars and power. Check it out below.

The She’s drop all female rock and roll quartet on November 17th via Empty Cellar Records.

Andrew St. James Gives Us Another Gem

At this point, San Francisco based singer/songwriter Andrew St. James is a not just a label mate, but also a friend. As the months go by, it’s incredible to see the amount of songs he records and pumps out. Seriously, it’s crazy. What’s even more crazy, is that all of the songs offer something unique and special. Andrew’s latest single “In the Morning” continues his recent hot streak of jams. This one offers a sort of Paul Simon vibe with it’s poppy drums and driving theme. Keep it up kid.

St. James is releasing a new album entitled The Big Ole Veronica Apology Record this Friday, June 16h.

Also don’t forget to pick up your copy of Andrew’s 7″ single we released recently on bandcamp.

New 7″ From Andrew St. James

After many months of much hard work from myself and several others, I’m elated today to bring you news of our upcoming 7″ single from young gun Andrew St. James. Now I’ve been a fan of Andrew for quite awhile so this project is something that means a whole lot to me. As his first release on vinyl, Andrew has hand picked this track, “You’ll be Fine”, to be featured as the A-side with “Red Hair Green Eyes” as B-side. “You’ll be Fine” is a perfect example of Andrew’s superb songwriting skills similar to greats like Tallest Man or Dylan. This is surely a kick off to a promising and bright career as a top up and coming singer songwriter. Stay tuned in the coming weeks as we’ll bring you the sweet B-side soon.

Head over to bandcamp right now to pre-order the new 7″ single releasing on March 2nd. It’s a gem.

Pop Psych from Battlehooch

battlehoochWhat do you get when you take psych and blend it with elements of late 90s indie rock? I think your answer is here with Battlehooch and the band’s new single. It’s like this weird blend of Grandaddy and Muse (maybe even Rooney) mashed up together, then drizzled with a little dosage of psychedelic heritage via harmonicaflourishes here and there. It might possibly be the most accessible psychedelic-tinted track. File this track as another feature in the band’s growing repertoire of well-crafted hits for their clamoring fans.

Noisy Pop from Violent Change

vc3I have no idea how I stumbled upon this great tune from Violent Change, but I’m so glad I did! It’s this brilliant piece of noisy pop, falling some place where the worlds of Royal Headache and GBV crash. You’ll hear appropriate bits of fuzz through your speakers, but beneath it lurks this elegant melody that’s simply undeniable. I think you’re going to be stuck listening to this track all day long, as I know I can’t get enough of it. This is our first listen to the band’s new piece from their record, VC3, which is being released by Melters on September 16th. Dammit this song is amazing.

Watch the New Video from Plush

I was really bummed when The Shes called it quits, but I’ve beenexcited by the new project formed out of the ashes, Plush. The band is working withFather Daughter Records, and this new video sets up the scene for a continuation of great sounds. For most part, the song walks that line of ethereal dream pop, floating along casually. But, as the song furthers itself, you’ll hear some sonic exploration, such as extra distortion and crashing percussive elements. The band employs all sorts of sounds on their recent Please EP…which is available now. Also, look for the band to do a run down the East Coast starting this week.

New Swinging Single From Nick Waterhouse

unnamedThose in the mood for a little throwback, doo wop style pop music on this Wednesday should check out this new single entitled “It’s Time” from San Francisco based Nick Waterhouse. You’ll hear many genre elementshere like soul, jazz, and r&b all coming together nicely to create a powerful bit of retro pop music. I could see Nick headlining a stage at ACL here pretty soon if he keeps this up.

Waterhouse will release Never Twice on September 30th via Innovative Leisure.

Banger From Happy Diving

unnamed (3)As many of us are likely struggling to get moving today after too much fun yesterday, this new single from San Francisco’s Happy Diving might be the perfect hangover cure. Yeah “Holy Ground” may start off as a sort of slacker rock tune, but hold tight, the true wall of guitars comes in pretty quick. The meandering feel, with that slow build into awesomeness is sure to perk up your Tuesday. It’s done it for me.

Electric Soul Unity will drop on August 19th via Topshelf Records.
