Survival Guide (Petaluma, CA)
Survival Guide is an artistic endeavor featuring California vocalist and keyboardist Emily Whitehurst (Tsunami Bomb/The Action Design). Her music falls somewhere between indie rock and electronic, always with descriptive, storytelling lyrics, strong vocals and a sprinkle of pop. After supporting Joan Jett, performing at First City Festival 2014 (Beck, The National, Phantogram) and recording a freshman full-length album, Survival Guide was named one of the Top 12 Bay Area Bands of 2014 by San Francisco’s premier rock radio station, Live 105. The new album (May 2015), entitled “Way to Go”, conjures feelings of a dark modern fairytale and showcases Whitehurst’s vocal range and talent, following two previously released 7" vinyl singles, “Hot Lather Machine” and “Wildcat”, released on San Francisco’s Side With Us Records.
Lungs & Limbs (San Francisco, CA)
Lungs and Limbs are an alt-pop band that write and record out of a horse stable in the woods north of San Francisco.
Known for their thick, hip-hop-and-80's-inspired beats, cowboy guitar licks and hook-laden vocals, Lungs and Limbs are a rising sound in the Bay Area. Their debut EP Lifelike (2015) received positive press from critics in the Bay Area, Boston, LA, Germany and beyond. Their follow-up EP, BIG BANG, was released Dec 2016 and the band is currently touring to support the release.
Citing influences as diverse as LCD Soundsystem, Erykah Badu, Shalamar, and The Gossip, Mirrorgloss began creating music in the Spring of 2013, straight off the heels of a Jeff Buckley tribute performance at the New Frontier Lounge. Being able to form bonds learning the intricate arrangements and getting the ultimate high of eventually performing live was all the band needed to start writing original material. Mirrorgloss in various forms have been a quartet and a trio, and former guitarist and Danny Kenny shaped their earlier sound profoundly, composing music electronically and playing rock inspired guitar over the dual vocal pairing of Najamoniq Todd and Del Brown, the sound was an unmistakable hybrid of electronic dance pop, with powerful guitar riffs and a strong neo 80's aesthetic.
