Ah God
Ah God
Ah God is heavy art grunge and fuzzed-out psychedelia with a DIY recording ethic. Heavy drum beats are carried to your ears softly and sweetly on the backs of stoney guitar melodies of the utmost sensuality. Straight out of Portland, OR, Ah God freshly emerges from the current scene, coming at you with loud bouquets of floral punk and the fuzzy sweetness you didn't know your life was missing.

The Brankas
The Brankas are an experimental punk duo from San Francisco, CA. The band was formed in 2014 by Theo Slavin (guitar & vocals) and Taylor McElroy (drums & synthesizer) and they have since fine-tuned an asymmetrical style focused around start/stop dynamics, odd time signatures, and off kilter pop. Their ensuing records (2016’s Exchanges EP & Identical Tentacles EP and 2017’s “My Parkour Body…”) would certainly be at home with fans of The Locust, Tera Melos & Deerhoof, as well as in collections featuring Black Moth Super Rainbow or This Heat.

Their latest full length, “My Parkour Body Is The Paint And The World Is My Canvas. I Don't See Obstacles, I See Opportunities.” is “…beautifully unhinged and cohesively clashes with itself in precisely the ways The Brankas intended… each member of the San Francisco two piece’s stellar musicianship is as noticeable as the songwriting prowess that is evident in their previous releases.” (Spencer Kilpatrick, Tahoe Onstage, 2017). The album sees the two friends finding meaning in chaos on an intentionally broken record. “All ten tracks are dedicated to sometimes electronic, sometimes just electric, and sometimes... borderline disturbing methods of experimentation. These two are here to surprise you…” (Allie Miller, The Deli SF, 2017).
