Winchester Revival
Winchester Revival
Winchester Revival is a band from Oakland, CA with a timeless alternative rock sound that takes their influence from a number of indie sources from the 80s, 90s and early 00s. Initially a drum/bass/guitar outfit while searching for a singer, the addition of vocalist David Rosenheim to Andrew Lund’s guitar, Ron Cruz’s bass, Kirk Snedeker’s drums and Matt Glick’s electronic production created the passionate and creative alt rock incarnation who have now released two EPs in as many years.

Styled in the tradition of post-punk and early 90s college rock, each member of Winchester Revival brings an element to the table which adds to the band’s overall sound. Vocalist David Rosenheim and guitarist Andrew Lund work closely on the shoe-gaze and wall of sound-influenced melodies as Cruz’s slinky bass provides an unexpected lightness to this emotive sound. Kirk Snedeker’s classic alt rock drums give Lund and Rosenheim the solid foundation on which to build their aching melodies and Matt Glick provides a dose of modern indie electronic style. Amanda Guilbeaux, the band’s honorary backing vocalist, provides a bright yet soft backing vocal tone to compliment Rosenheim.

When Winchester Revival released their first EP, Eyes in the Canopy, they teamed up with King of Sticks Recording Cooperative for a global digital release. This first EP introduced the world to the band’s classic yet modern take on alternative rock with their distinctive post-punk/shoe-gazer mash-up. This EP also had an experimental bent as well with tracks like “Matterhorn,” where Andrew Lund warped and weaved his guitar sound to create a discordant quality not often heard in alt rock.

Burden’s Landing, again on King of Sticks, is Winchester Revival’s latest EP. This six-song collection sees electronic artist Matt Glick providing even more of his trademark synthesizers on tracks like “Ides of January” and “Diligence”. The two-song epic “Keep It Together” and “Salamander” bleed into each other and showcase the talents of each member in a unique way, again showing signs of experimental rock. For this reason “Salamander” is a favorite song of the band and a recommended track for any fan of dreamy, esoteric alt rock. Opening track and first single “Last Night In Tokyo” set the stage for this surprising and inspiring EP.

With an already very distinctive sound and a lineup of artists who write and work so well together, Winchester Revival hope to be around a long time, creating more and more beautiful and passionate songs and taking their sound in new and exciting directions.

This band is different. We hope you'll think so too.
Mist and Mast
Mist and Mast
"Jason Lakis is proving to be his own best bandmate. The former frontperson of Bay Area country-slowcore outfit the Red Thread, which split this summer after three stellar LPs, has lately reemerged as Mist and Mast — a solo act, though you wouldn't guess it. Mist's eponymous debut, which Lakis released on his Oakland Petting Zoo label, finds the artist playing every part — and sounding sneakily like some well-rehearsed group. On 'Green Eyes,' say, a sweet spell of country-tinged and harmony-heavy college rock, the so-called group might be the young REM with the vocalist seeming to shy away from the mic." --Bay Guardian

"[Mist and Mast] blew us away when we first heard it. It's a very strong collection of nuanced rock-pop songs, full of great hooks and melodies and a ton of those little textured moments that separate certain singer-songwriters from the pack." - The Bay Bridged
The Royal Panics
The Royal Panics
The Royal Panics mix the high-octane intensity of old school garage and punk with the catchy, hook-laden riffs of classic 70's 'the' bands like The Clash, The Knack, The Kinks, The Jam, and more... Over the past 3 years, the trio has grown a steady following in the SF indie rock scene bringing their special brew of power pop to clubs throughout the Bay Area.

Singer/guitarist Greg Hoy slugged away in New York City rock bars for 10 years before migrating to San Francisco. Six months of false starts, drunken auditions, and missed connections led to bassist Mark Nichoson and drummer Dennis Galway. The first jam was a love fest of a rare and special sort. Hoy's songwriting fuels the Royal Panics and the prolific songsmith has released over 30 albums, recording with industry legends like Steve Albini, J Robbins, and John Vanderslice. Some of Hoy's songs have been used on MTV's 'Made' and 'The Real World', the CW's 'One Tree Hill', and documentary films seen on HBO.

The Royal Panics will be on tour this spring to promote the upcoming release of their debut album, delivering on the promise of their incendiary live shows with an 11-song journey that is often funny, sometimes bittersweet, but always one hell of a ride. From the opening stomp of the pop single "Parker Posey" to the hard-rocking swagger of "Special Party," The Royal Panics spin out the big hooks with tales of life's great joys and discontents.
