Indie Rock

Joy Weather's "Oh California" is a bittersweet love letter to Los Angeles

Los Angeles can be a hard place to fit in. In a city that is so sprawling, you'd think that there wouldn't be any preconceived ideas of what it is to fit a certain "type." On "Oh California," Joy Weather's latest single, singer-songwriter Brian Ishiba isn't ready to throw in the towel just yet. "Cus even though I have my doubts/I’m planning on sticking around," Ishiba reflects with a tinge of regret over a scuzzy guitar riff, a sentiment that came to him while he was living in Japan. Ishiba and bandmates Ed Baida (bass) and Joey Grabmeier (drums) share an unbridled love for the place they call home, demonstrated with effusive joy on the accompanying video. The trio galivant like locals sharing a travelogue of their everyday adventures, ultimately convincing us to give the places we may initially dismiss a second look. 

"Oh California" is featured on Joy Weather's still-unannounced forthcoming LP, which promises to tackle themes like reconciliation and personal growth. Check out the video premiere below. - Juan Rodríguez



Furbie has released their second single, “Butterfinger”. This is the fun indie pop of Annie Burns, Mercedes Webb, and Liam Burns, and Sean Hallock.

This follows their debut single, “Skiball”, which was released back in February.


Bay Babes: Tricycle Records Releases Compilation Vol. 9

Our friends at Tricycle Records released their 9th compilation album this month featuring a whole lotta women that we dig on. There’s Kendra McKinley, whose “Asleep in Winter” showcases her connective and empathetic lyrics in funky pop with looping pedal work (Performed by Kendra McKinley, recorded and mixed by Scott McDowell at the Henry Miller Memorial Library).

We dig on Micropixie’s “Dark Sight of the Moon,” with its Pink Floyd inspirations and the powerful push against modern day politics on the home front and beyond. It’s electro psych pop dripping with social justice narratives. If you haven't caught it yet, check out her video for "Como Minimo," shot at our beloved Lovejoy's Tea Room in San Francisco. 

Another favorite is Beckylin and Her Druthers with “You Ain’t Woman Enough”…to take my man. Damn straight. A nice and exciting find for any country fans. Beckylin and Her Druthers are bluegrass and twangin’ and powerfully sassy. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

Just A Mess

Just A Mess recently release visuals for the second single, "Imagine Drowning in a Pool of Your Own Blood”, from their 2019 album, Reservations.

This is the work of Tony Sarlo (Guitar/Vocals), Kyle Blais (Bass), and Cory Gray (Drums).

You can catch Just A Mess at Moe’s Tavern with Farseer and The Darkhorse Collective on December 14th.
