Austin Prince makes solo debut with single "Hard to Bare"

Austin Prince, formerly a member of Brothers Prince, realized he had to quit his full-time job, as well as his band, when neither made him feel fulfilled. Now focusing full-time on music, Prince has embarked on a solo project that he debuted with the minimalistic pop-meets-soul single “Hard to Bare” (streaming below) — an emotive track about not being able to let go, even when you know it’s the best thing for you. On this track, Prince’s croon is at its most vulnerable — begging an unnamed subject to come back, even just for a moment. Austin Prince’s debut EP is expected to be released this spring. - Lilly Milman

Thriftys debut intergalactic music video for "Leave Here Unknown"

Chase Eiseman (of the Deli-approved Oakland post-punk trio Normies) takes on a new role in a project called Thriftys in the video for single “Leave Here Unknown” (streaming below), where he plays an extraterrestrial musician with an inability to blend in. In the clip, Eiseman’s green-painted skin and third eye aren’t his only traits that stand out; his easygoing falsetto in the chorus is a highlight of the track, and pulls listeners in more and more with each refrain. Like Normies, Thriftys is an Oakland group to watch — especially as Eiseman plays with band members that come from Bay Area staple bands Toyota, Babewatch, and Half Stack — and it allows Eiseman to harness the full power of his ear for pop. He played his first show as Thriftys alongside LA-via-Boston powerhouse Slothrust on Saturday, September 15. - Lilly Milman

Stream our favorite tracks from each of these artists in the playlist below. - Lilly Milman

Genie of The Lamp pay homage to Mac Dre in "Since '84" live cover video

The quartet Genie of The Lamp are dedicated to paying homage towards Bay Area legend Mac Dre, who was instrumental in developing the local hip-hop scene. In their newest video for “Since ’84” (streaming below,) they channel nostalgia through vintage video effects and a stripped-down visual approach. The live cover of the track does justice to the original, highlighting both the technical execution and the Bay Area spirit of Genie of The Lamp. - Lilly Milman
