Remember Karen
"The Oakland-based quartet specialize in melodic tracks that mystify with their cryptic, abstract lyrics, yet stay far, far away from the cringe-worthy realm of fake depth. The best part is, they don’t take themselves too seriously, either. They aren’t afraid of rhyming “modesto” with “unimpressed-o” in “Afternoon Waking Life”—a move made even more successful by the whirlwind chorus that follows it. Their music nods at the early work of indie rock legends Death Cab, working in a similar stripped-down style to their debut LP Something About Airplanes. However, that is not to say it is derivative. This is not a recreation of something that already exists, but rather, a revival—one that we’re excited to see unfold." - The Deli SF
Sour Widows
the Sour Widows are a bedroom alt rock duo from Albany, California, comprised of longtime friends Maia Sinaiko and Susanna Thomson. Songs marked by driving harmonies address themes of relationship and reflection; layers of warmth, depth, and grit surface and fade in their two-guitar dynamic. Through progressions that shift from subtle to biting, the Sour Widows expose tender moments with an edge.
Baby Dumpling
Tyler, Sophie, and Bo play together in Oakland-based friend rock/pet rock band Baby Dumpling. With wide-ranging creative interests (and a unifying love of Neil Young), the trio plays quiet music tinged with a slow country sparkle. Since the release of their debut EP "Quite Nights" in 2016, they have been working together on a steady stream of new songs.The closing lyrics of the EP - "I want to mean something to you" - hint at the closeness and tenderness near the heart of their music. If they weren't playing in a band together they'd still be dear friends, but this project is a special part of that friendship. They hope you find as much in it as they do.
Joy Cyr
Silly, sad, short stories, painfully honest.
