Peacers “Veteran Bay Area psych merchant Mike Donovan leads a nimble four-piece working band that heightens the nuance and dynamic range of his twisted tunes while retaining the shambolic, damaged vibe that colors all his projects (he was also the mastermind of the defunct Sic Alps). The distended rhythms recall the solo work of Syd Barrett, with raw melodies and ramshackle guitars drifting in and out of focus—it’s deliciously out of sync, each song existing as a tantalizing glimpse of what it might’ve been. Donovan and company could surely polish up their music, but the fuzzy edges give it its charm.” – Chicago Reader


SWIFTUMZ “A stoned mix of stuck-in-your-head pop hooks, saccharine love songs that you want to play over and over again, and Ariel Pinkish bedroom lo-fi weirdness. Brings to mind Teenage Fanclub power pop, Guided By Voices, and maybe even the more sunshine-y Sparklehorse tracks out there.” – aQuarius Records


The Umbrellas 4-piece indie pop band from SF (featuring members of Toyota) that just released their EP titled “Maritime” on discontinuous innovations inc.
