Tennis System
Tennis System offers lots of fuzz and noise on new single “Shelf Life”

Once known for shutting down the venues they played with their raucous wall-of-sound, L.A.-based Tennis System has been Matty Taylor’s love-letter to loudness. Their latest single “Shelf Life,” the first from their upcoming third album Lovesick, continues that calling in spectacular fashion—spreading their noisy, melodic-shoegaze into a sprawling soundscape of crashing percussion and torn riffs.

With her new album, August, Shannon Lay challenges us to be joyous. She makes a case for celebration and for perseverance and for life.

Premiere: Can’t Shake the Grooves in Wolf Bay’s New Single

You know Wolf Bay as a skilled rocker, with agile fingers that soar across the fretboard. Yet his new single “Shakin’ You Off”, mixed by Grey Goon and engineered and produced by Dean Passarella himself (aka Wolf Bay), may not be quite what you’re expecting—it’s a smooth, R&B number. Overall, it is not as much […]

I had never heard the phrase “Girl Friday” until a local band by that name came across my radar. It is (was?) a phrase that meant an office assistant who handled many tasks—it was coined at a time when only women were considered for secretarial positions, of course. Watch these bandmates crush the stereotype in […]
