Song of the Day – Tuesday 12/7/2010 PJ Harvey December 7, 2010

PJ Harvey will release her eighth album, Let England Shake which is scheduled for release on 2/14/2011 in the UK and on 2/15/2011 in the US.  She made the following statement to the BBC regarding her new album:

“I think a lot of my work has often been about the interior, the emotional, what happens inside oneself.  This time I’ve just been looking out, so it’s not only to do with taking a look at England, but taking a look at the world and what’s happening in the current day world affairs.  But always trying to come from the human point of view because I don’t feel qualified to sing from a political standpoint.”

Miz Polly Jean will embark on a mini-European Tour (which is already sold out) in February, and will hit the festival circuit this Summer…

Song of the Day – Monday 5/3/2010 Cass McCombs May 3, 2010

East Bay folk/alt country rocker, Cass McCombs was born and raised in Concord and is now based in LA.  McCombs fourth album, Catacombs was released last year, and was written as a tribute to his wife.  His song, “Dreams Come True Girl” features Academy Award nominated actress, Karen Black of Easy Rider, Five Easy Pieces, and Nashville fame singing like a true dreams come true seductress.  The song almost appears to be an updated version of The Everly Brothers, “All I Have to Do is Dream” except this time boy gets the girl of his dreams…

Song of the Day – Thursday 4/29/2010 Local Natives April 29, 2010

What would you get if a Fleet Fox and a Grizzly Bear mated?  No, not a Jackalope or a Liger (“bred for its skills in magic”) or even a Tiglon (look it up).  You’d get Local Natives, the LA quintet that combines Fleet Foxes’ folksy three-part harmonies with Grizzly Bear’s psych folk.

Local Natives debut album, Gorilla Manor dropped on 2/16/2010 and the band will be playing two back-to-back gigs in San Francisco.  On 6/2/2010 the band will play at the Rickshaw Stop, and on 6/3/2010 they’ll play at Bottom of the Hill.

Song of the Day – Wednesday 3/31/2010 The Mumlers March 31, 2010

MizMuze was at The Morning Benders’ show last night at The Independent, and she and the audience were in for a treat as The Mumlers were the opening act.  These local boys make good, smart music.

The San Jose six-piece band defies categorization, with their mix of guitars, accordions, clarinets, french horns, tubas, and stand-up bass they meld blues, jazz, soul, and folk that sound ancient and modern at the same time.  If you get a chance to see them live and alive (not in zombie form like the video below) do so, you won’t be disappointed.  And like their namesake William Mumler, a 19th century photographer who told customers he could capture the images of their deceased loved ones, they may just capture your soul.

The Mumlers latest album, Don’t Throw Me Away was released last year.
