In Samvega’s world, music is a voyage into the subconscious. Heavy psychedelic overtures, bellowing lyrics, and a tendency to tip toe into the darker places of the mind form the subway of sound. Their set can move from psychedelic instrumentation, to doom, to gypsy, to blues and anywhere in between. All four members sing, and the vocals that ride on top can be lowdown outlaw, to punk cabaret. Regardless the singer, their lyrics are carefully crafted and cry of the underground, for change, for lost love.
Physical Suicide Deterrent System Project (PSDSP) is an avant-grunge band from the SF Bay area. PSDSP combines heavy riffs, melodious, spacey vocals, surprising lyrics, and virtuosic musicianship for a sound that picks up where Soundgarden left off, taking more where Alice Coltrane was headed. Lead singer and guitarist Eli Carlton-Pearson first conceived of the band after reading the comically verbose official title of the Golden Gate Bridge's suicide barrier. Well aware that music had provided him and many others with a reason to live in otherwise hopeless times, he decided to name his band after the barrier, in a move that was both tongue in cheek and dead serious. Joined by Brian Wilkerson on bass and Michael Pinkham on drums, PSDSP has become a cult favorite in their native Fairfax, and continues to surprise audiences everywhere with a well rehearsed yet improvisational approach to heavy rock and roll.
After a few different incarnations, members of Bay Area band, Mære, have come together again to form Crook. Under this new moniker, Daniel Crook, Burak Yarebakan, Vince Gutierrez and Timothy Oakley have created a cinematic fusion of rock and roll and soul inspired by artists ranging from the vocal stylings of Nina Simone and James Blake to the musical stylings of artists like Sigur Ros and Queen of the Stone Age. Though their influences are far reaching, their sound is unique to itself.
