The Silhouette Era releases single "Waste Me" off forthcoming self-titled EP

San Francisco four-piece The Silhouette Era serves garage rock on a silver platter. Their surfy summer anthem for punks, “Waste Me” (streaming below), combines fun, gritty, guitar-driven rock with a notable level of musicianship (two out of four members study music composition at San Francisco State.) Their music is reckless yet clean, rowdy but with a purpose, and perfect for streaming all summer long. The rest of their self-titled EP will be out on June 22nd, and they will be celebrating with a show at the East Village Coffee Lounge in their hometown of Monterey the next day. - Lilly Milman 

Oakland's Sun Kin releases tribute to grandmother, "Honey, I'm Whole"

Sun Kin is the project of Oakland-based Kabir Kumar, a baroque indie pop project with psychedelic sensabilities. Kumar’s most recent release is the single “Honey, I’m Whole” (streaming below), which is a tribute to his grandmother. The tender lyricism of the song is contrasted with the upbeat arrangements, delivering a heavy dose of nostalgia that is much more sweet than it is bitter. In Kumar’s own words, “This song is about wishing that someone you’ve loved forever could meet someone you just fell in love with.” - Lilly Milman

Showcase Alert: Throwin' Bo's at The Elbo Room (5.3) ft. dot Vom, FRONDS, & Free Paintings

Throwin’ Bo’s is back again with another installment; so, if you’ve been kicking yourself for missing opening night last month, then it’s your lucky day. This month’s lineup promises a night of dreamy, indie rock—all from Bay Area locals. Hailing from San Francisco are dot Vom (streaming below) and FRONDS, both of which offer nothing but the sweetest doses of echo-laden goodness. Oakland’s free paintings will also be joining the party, topping off the set with their own personal blend of art-rock and shoe gaze. - Lilly Milman

The event will once again be at The Elbo Room, and it is 21+. Tickets are $5 in advance and $7 at the door. Make sure to RSVP on Facebook

Saalt plays music video release show at The Milk Bar (5.16)

If you haven’t listened to the debut EP (Y) by Saalt, the musical creation of Alisa Saario, then you need to do yourself a favor. Soon. The moody slacker pop of the Oakland songstress is fantastical in its ability to marry the lo-fi with the energetic. This release makes use of kinetic energy; despite the dreamy and distant nature of her vocals, songs like “Wasted” (streaming below) still come off as anthemic and replay-able. There’s no one doing anything quite like Saario right now in Oakland, meaning that her music video release show at the Milk Bar on May 16th is unmissable. - Lilly Milman  

SF's The Fixins Release Debut EP + play The Plough and Stars (5.4.)

The debut EP Rain or Shine by the San Francisco-based jam rock quartet The Fixins proves that they are not just the Bay Area’s fair-weathered friends—they’re here to stay. After playing countless live shows, they’ve finally laid down a recording. Their four-track EP is Americana influenced, with the occasional bluesy swell. It’s smooth and intricate, riffing off classic jam inspirations to create an extremely energetic record. Quite frankly, it’s something you and your dad can listen to together—easily. The release of their EP is kicking off a long string of summer shows for The Fixins, starting with a show at Peri’s Silver Dollar Bar in Fairfax on the 3rd. They will also be at San Francisco’s own The Plough and Stars the next day. - Lilly Milman
