The Soft White Sixties

The Soft White Sixties

San Francisco's The Soft White Sixties are a hard-driving, original rock and roll band that delivers R&B grooves and pop hooks with the transformative power of raw soul.

Named as one of Paste Magazine's "Top 25 Shows at SXSW 2013″, The Soft White Sixties are increasingly gaining recognition for their infectious live performance. Since 2010 they have been perfecting their sound, appropriately dubbed Working Class Soul – a gritty edge to modern pop. They mix their vast influences into a hard-hitting and confident force reminiscent of classic R&B and Rock 'n' Roll but with a contemporary sensibility. Octavio Genera (vocals), Aaron Eisenberg (guitar/keys), Ryan Noble (bass), and Joey Bustos (drums) combine soulful melodies, deep grooves, and fuzzed-out hooks to form a completely distinct sound.

An anticipated forthcoming album titled "Get Right." is due out in the near future. Produced by Jim Greer (known for his recent work on Foster the People's platinum-selling album, Torches), the new record offers a sonic diary of the band's last two years: an organic collection of soul-driven anthems, heart-felt choruses, sticky grooves, and clever arrangements. Like the object after which The Soft White Sixties are named, this band shines.

NO (Los Angeles)

Indie rock band from Echo Park, Los Angeles. Nick Jarzabek, Tim Jarzabek, Justin Corman

It is the mid-1990s in San Francisco California. Four baby girls are crying in their cribs shaking their little baby fists at the heavens lamenting the fact that fate has not yet united them. So begins this tale. Fast forward. It is 2007 and these same four girls are playing Ramones covers in Hannah's basement with studded belts around their waists and braces on their teeth, algebra homework strewn across the floor. Jump ahead. It's November 2011. "The She’s" have just released their first full length record Then It Starts to Feel Like Summer. It's an album that captures their youthful spirits and deep-seeded friendship with tight three part harmonies, sparkling, sunny instrumentals and smart, catchy songwriting. The she's sing songs that reflect their environment, their heartache, their relationships and aspirations. It's infectious. The Grinch smiles when he hears it. People start to notice the noise these four best friends are making. The She's gain momentum in the local music scene and open for bands like Girls, Surfer Blood,Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, and Yuck. They keep writing songs. Fast forward to present day. The She's are back and they've got something new for you. It's dreamy and sunny and the ladies most mature, honest and enchanting release to date.

Cannons and Clouds

San Francisco's Cannons and Clouds assert tastefully designed, melody-forward, vocally charged, heavy "Indie Post-Rock". Both wistful and dynamic, their music is accentuated by slow-building crescendos, rich multi-part vocal harmonies, and soaring layers of electrically sonic, face-melting, soul-crushing, kegel-clenching convergences of both rhythmic and melodic psychedelia. All while maintaing a propensity for integrating unfeigned ballads and confessional narratives into their manifold framework.
