The Blank Tapes, Beach Day

The Blank Tapes

THE BLANK TAPES is the moniker of Los Angeles & San Francisco based musician & artist, Matt Adams, who has produced over 10 albums of 1960's psychedelic-surf-pop-folk-rock on an old 8 track cassette tape recorder in various garages, basements, sheds & bedrooms across the California Coast. Matt is also the artist behind his band's posters & album covers, and along with his band mates, Pearl, DA, & Will, they've toured throughout America, Brazil, Europe, & Japan. They just released a 7" with 20-Sided Records and a few new cassette tapes with Burger Records, Curly Cassettes & Dome of Doom. They also have a new studio album called "VACATION" coming out on Antenna Farm Records Spring of 2013! Matt Adams is also the artist behind The Blank Tapes.

"Beach Day specializes in a beachy (duh), garage-minded breed of girl-group pop. Indeed, this wellspring goes back about 50 years, and lots of young acts are reviving it now, but this band's interpretation is so natural and incandescent that they make it feel completely fresh again. They have all the romantic nostalgia that you want from this fare but with just enough garage grit to be au courant. But their universal virtue is their rare melodic gift. Most of their ilk simply don't have the stunningly easygoing songwriting instinct that Beach Day does. And that's the difference. It's basic but it's everything. It's why all their songs sound like singles. Moreover, singer Kimmy Drake has the true voice of a girl-group leading lady, something like a young, white Ronnie Spector raised on punk."

Song Preservation Society

Song Preservation Society is an acoustic band noted for their stirring vocal harmonies, beautiful songwriting, and charismatic stage presence. Inspired by the likes of Crosby Stills & Nash, the Beach Boys, and Simon & Garfunkel, this trio delivers a sound that is both timeless and fresh.

The boys of SPS (Daniel Wright, Ethan Glazer, and Trevor Bahnson) met while they were students at Berklee College of Music in Boston. In 2009 they moved to California together and began playing as part of a rock band called 7 Orange ABC. Soon they were playing stripped down, acoustic shows as a side project, which in 2010 officially became the Song Preservation Society.
