White Teeth is a San Francisco based new wave post punk pop garage act that formed in 2012.
The sound can be described as having melodic elements of new wave like Tears for Fears or The Cure, rhythmically driving reminiscent of late 70's punk glued together by clean jangly guitars that give an element of garage rock.
After an incubation period and several lineup changes the band recorded BEWARE AND WELCOME EP at Tiny Telephone with the help of engineer Matthew Colecchi.
Rio Rio is an indie rock quintet from San Francisco that blends deluxe guitar tones, dynamic synths, and dance party adrenaline to create what some reviewers have referred to as "indie rocktronica." They have been featured on a number of music blogs including: Indie Shuffle, It's All Indie, SugarBang, and Dance Like Shaquille O'Neal.
"There's been a hefty round of carping in certain circles about the perceived ubiquity of Joy Division as an influence of late, but honestly, people: is this really such a bad thing? What, would you prefer a Men Without Hats revival instead? Besides, many of the faithful followers have brought their own palettes to the 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' tableau. Local heroes Tomihira delve into the familiar blacks and whites associated with the Mancunian lodestars, but on songs such as 'Pillbox' and 'All to Be Undone' -- whooshing and thrumming with My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive textures -- the band also whirls dreamy Maxfield Parrish blues and purples into its blazing melancholia. Best of all, Dean Tomihira's vocals exude an amorous warmth lacking in the current Interpol-Editors axis." --Bay Guardian
Formed in February 2013, them Hibbity Dibbity boys swiftly established themselves as a musical powerhouse through their dynamic live performances. The unique, psychedelicous sounds of the Dib are forged through a combination of musicianship and unique songwriting. Drawing from influences such as the guitar-driven sounds of the Allman Brothers to the greasy down-home grooves of RL Burnside to the improvisational journeys of the Grateful Dead, Hibbity Dibbity is rapidly becoming a must-see band in the San Francisco music scene.
