So I haven't been recording many shows recently because I've been real busy and the shows I do go to I usually want to just get wasted and party, that being said I do have this video. I asked my good buds in Wild Moth if I could make a video for them and of course they had no choice but to say yes. This has been my little bedroom project for a while and every now and then I would just work on it when I had free time. The new Wild Moth stuff is real tight and it was hard to make something as sick as those jams so I hope everyone likes it. Trying to do way more videos for bands so hit me up if your into it.
Listen to the new and old Wild Moth jams here.

Here is a video from a while back of Joyce Manor playing their Murder City Devils cover of "Midnight Service at the Mutter Museum", which you can find on their split with Oakland's Big Kids. They played with Wild Moth and Dimples and it was a really fun night. This video is lots of fun because you get to really see Matt, the bassist, going off. So enjoy!
Elliot Babin, the drummer of Touche Amore, is venturing into new territory. He recently recorded a few songs where he plays every instrument and sings and has since decided to make these songs a reality. It would be easy to go into how this is undoubtedly a super group and each one of the people that play in this band have done so much, but this isn't about what they have done, it is about what they are doing. Instead just sit back, listen and enjoy what is undoubtedly the birth of a great band.
Tiny Lungs have been around for a little while now although they do not play as much as I wish they did, however if you do happen to see these guys on a flier for a show you are in for a good time. They have a real solid sound that they have developed over two EP's and a single that they released. This song is on one of the sides of their single and really pulls at the heart strings. Get the jams below, rock out, and find a show they are playing and you won't regret it.
Merchandise came through town last weekend and I got to see them last Friday and Saturday with Wild Moth. This band is a bizarre mix of many things but it works. Sort of an ambient dream pop, Merchandise play a set that is a very fun experience. They just came out with a new record Childeren Of Desire which is a really great album that is growing on me with every listen. The topper on the cake for me is their guitarist is David Vassalotti, who has an incredible solo project which you can hear a song from in my 3rd Mix Tape. Enjoy the video and try and catch these boys while they are on tour.
Last week we got to see Wild Moth really tear it up at a few shows with Joyce Manor. While most of us were expecting to see songs from their debut release we got to hear a few totally new ones as well. This is one of those brand new songs that you will get to hear on an upcoming release of theirs. Enjoy and get stoked!
Last night I went to a show in LA that I was pleasantly surprised was at McWorld, an art space and venue that closed a year or two ago. I guess the space re-opened and is back in action. Merry Christmas played, who I had heard of a long time ago and was way overdue in seeing live. They played a really great set and the switching back and forth between guitarists doing vocals kept the songs real fresh. The song is "Teenage Jackie" from their EP "Various And A Sundry" but check out all their songs, they're worth it.
Ok, so usually I only post sort of punk stuff on this site but I am making an exception for this. I have been trying to do music videos for a while but it is hard to get everyone on the same page and free up the time for it. This video is real simple, but the point is to show y'all that music videos are sick and to make you hit me up if you want one. So enjoy the vid and if ya like it check Awol's link below.
Shoppers just came through SF and killed it at their show. They play ambient punk with just enough drive coming through to really get you going. I would say they are of those bands that sounds much better live than recorded so if you are into the recordings you should definitely try and catch their set when they come to your town.
Summer Vacation just came up to the bay and played a kick ass show. They just came out with a killer album called Condition that is really incredible. I've seen these dudes play a lot and one of the best things ever is screaming the words to every one of their songs.
