Future Twin came together through the 1st all girl moped gang the Lockits. They became fast friends and were soon waxing synth songs, huffing gasoline and makeing shred tents (the 'e' stands for everyone) late into the evening. Since then situations transpired, people decided to get up or get out, landslides shifted, but adaptive by design this pirate ship just keeps sailing.
"Curious Sacramento four piece who give the impression they're going to be scuzzy as heck, but actually end up having many of the same doofus pop vibes as early Red Kross, Electric Blood and even raunchier moments of The Cannanes." -WIRE Magazine
Perfectly sloppy poppy punk rock juxtaposed well with pleasing melody. This band has a wonderfully crisp tone and an effortlessly beautiful lo-fi recording quality. -MAXIMUM ROCK AND ROLL
Sacramento-based punk band, makin’ moves hither and yon. Their music is very poppy and melodic, but is played as strained and ragged as possible. Why sing in your regular voice when the high register sits there? Why not make it a little tough on yourself in order to force a more memorable, if not necessarily better, performance? The folks in G.Green take that chance and it works out in their favor.- Still Single
Electrician, an electro-folk project from Oakland, creates shadowy songs about social war, relationships, and discontent. Neil Campau, formerly of the anarchist-folk duo World History and most well-known as the founder of DoDIY.org, started the project in mid-2012. Since then, he has already completed a two and a half month tour of the USA, supported by multi-instrumentalist and singer Ellen Avis, and has been performing recently with a full band, including Jessy Lancaster on drums. The songwriting has often been compared to the lo-fi simplicity of works by Phil Elverum (The Microphones, Mount Eerie) and Bill Callahan (Smog).
