KILLER WHALE Baton Rouge’s Thomas Johnson moved to San Francisco and brought a bountiful sense of creativity with him. Recording as Killer Whale, Johnson crafts psychedelic rock-pop from a mixture of acoustic instruments, electronics, and layered vocals. Johnson already released a new EP, Pink Pacific, earlier this month. One hopes that we’ll be hearing more new music from this inventive singer-songwriter before the year is through. ASSATEAGUE San Francisco folk rock. DENTON HATCHER Americana soul from Baton Rouge, LA.

ROY LONEY Bay Area native Roy Loney, a founding member of the great Flamin’ Groovies, quit the band in the early ’70s, ostensibly to pursue a solo career. Oddly, his first solo recording didn’t appear until 1979, nearly seven years after leaving the Groovies. In the interim, Loney had taken a series of record industry jobs, at one point working as a sales rep for the now defunct ABC Records, and at the funky and fabulous Jack’s Record Cellar in…

ASADA MESSIAH has churned out a tasty dose of underground metal since 2008, with the release of their first EP Grill ‘Em ‘All. Their style reflects their love of all things metal, ranging from classic hardcore and thrash to epic doom metal riffs. In 2012, they self-released their first full length album Cross Contamination. Which is a heavy, riff-laden homage to midnight movies. MORRISSEY’S COCK Rocked out punk surf Deep Eddy Vodka is sponsoring a new series of shows this…

BODEGA With wild minimalism and sharp wit, BODEGA revitalizes the rock and roll vocabulary under the influence of post punk, contemporary pop, hip-hop, kraut rock, and folk-derived narrative songwriting. With the eyes of filmmakers, Ben Hozie (guitar, vocals) and Nikki Belfiglio (vocals) turn the documentary on themselves, finding the political in the personal. Formerly of prankster rock collective Bodega Bay, known for its outlandish critical stunts, their blend of essay and confession bears witness to the harsh poetry of being…

DYLAN CARLSON As the founder and only consistent member of drone institution Earth, Dylan Carlson has made abundantly clear what hes capable of with just an electric guitar, some pedals, and an amplifier. His music is a holistic experience, built not only from his heavy, gnarled riffs but also the space between his notes, the rattling amplifier, and the ringing in your ears once its all over. Scorpions in Their Mouths is a highlight from his forthcoming LP Conquistador, the…
