The Bananas are an underground punk rock band from Sacramento, California. They have albums on Secret Center, Sacramento Records, Plan It X Records, and Recess Records. The Bananas were on the cover of Razorcake Magazine as the feature interview of issue 32 in 2006. They are veterans of Geekfest, an annual California underground music festival.
After nine years of existence, Fullerton quartet, Audacity, has left the garage of their humble 9th grade beginning, but the garage hasn't left the spirit of their music. With two LPs, a slew of EPs, and no shortage of touring under their belts, Audacity are hardly a wet-behind-the-ears rock band. Their razor-sharp musicianship and high-energy performances were solid enough to earn them the privilege of serving as the backing band for both King Tuff and Todd Congelliere (Toys That Kill, Underground Railroad to Candyland).
Audacity's latest full-length Butter Knife out October 29 via Suicide Squeeze is still, at its core, a garage rock record. The economic instrumentation, grit-tinged guitar jangle, pogo-prompting tempos, and sing-along choruses can all be traced back to the seminal Nuggets collections. But ultimately, Butter Knife doesn't sound so much like an homage to The Sonics as it sounds like a young band striving to make the most ebullient and jubilant noise possible. The new single, "Hole In The Sky" showcases the band's gift for the on-the-dime changes, sophisticated melodies, and clever instrumental interplay.
Hailing from Brooklyn NY Hunters music is charged with wild energy led by singers/guitarists Derek Watson and Isabel Almeida. Mixing boy/girl harmonies with super catchy guitars, their songs tend to get stuck in your head before you even finish listening to them. Somewhere along the way they got with Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeahs who mixed their upcoming Ep, and former Smashing Pumpkin James Iha on the production end. The result is exactly what you would expect. Well maybe not... think The Vaselines on a wonderfully chaotic acid binge.
Caldecott is an organically grown band of working men, creating music based on experiences in the Bay Area and beyond. Each aspect of Caldecott contributes a unique and essential taste in music, which is shaped into something all communities can appreciate. The group takes any opportunity to build beautiful melodies and foot-stomping rhythms not only for themselves, but also for everyone that understands passionate music and good times. Caldecott holds a family dinner every week, and they hope to see you there soon.
