Jon Bernson puts it pretty plainly (and enthusiastically) when discussing the emerging lo-fi scene in the Mission: "There's a real collaborative spirit!" In case you haven't heard, a new crop of bands in the neighborhood is getting weird. One of…

Tim Cohen, S.F. Musicians Featured in New Art Show

There's long been an interesting overlap between the worlds of music and visual art. Countless rock bands (see, for starters, the 'Stones) assembled in art school, and many musicians, after their recording lives settle down, hit the gallery circuit. So it…

Video of the Day: The Fresh & Onlys "Vanish" in Bold Color

I love this new clip for The Fresh & Only's "Vanishing Cream." It looks like something Official Tourist would dream up: a psychedelic collage of disparate images, pulled together by prisms of bright color. The visual scheme goes well…

'In a Cloud' Captures SF's Best Folk Pop Freaks. We Q&A its Mastermind.

Where Our Head Is At

Music compilation projects don't usually blow our skirts up. While the local-scene types are always kind of fun, they also tend to suck. Production value is not the point, and bands don't want to give up the good songs they…
