    Moon Darling

    Rock & Roll

    There are those bands who recall an older time and place, a moment in history when music was more about saying something of substance than it was about counting the number of streams. Seattle psych rockers Moon Darling cling to this ideology, creating a bluesy sound that harkens back to that classic ’70s rock howl. By channeling the influence of bands like Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple (with a little bit of weirdness thrown in for good measure), the band builds a kaleidoscopic version of those artists that remains relevant and reverent among all the gaudy imitations littering the modern musical landscape.

    Rock & Roll

    Sweetwater Black is a Bay Area based trio that reflects influences from bands like the Black Keys and Black Sabbath. Like Black Sabbath, the band has sludgy-sounding instrumentals backed by powerful vocals. -Erin Dage "The Deli Magazine"

    Verst

    Rock

    Verst is an indie/space rock trio from San Francisco, California. Bass player John Parsons first discovered guitarist John Dickey’s music in the mid-90s via a random purchase of Pie’s “gone” EP in a Greenwich Village record store. Dickey was the mastermind behind Pie, a Boston-based band that opened for Built to Spill and Yo La Tengo before imploding. Parsons led San Francisco alt-rockers, Rule of Thumb, through four albums (and opening slots for The Gourds, Chuck Prophet, and Richmond Fontaine, among others) before dissolving the band.
    In 2002, Parsons, determined to find more Pie music, discovered that Dickey had relocated to San Francisco and formed a new band, Richard Bitch. A decade later, the two Johns joined forces in Verst along with drummer Brandon Hemley (also from Rule of Thumb). The music incorporates a wide variety of influences: everything from Dinosaur Jr. and Pavement to Judas Priest and King Crimson, layered with the “A.M. Gold” sensibilities of America and Bread. And yet, it is distinctively and unmistakably original. Starship Crash, the debut album released in 2015, was deemed a “noise-pop masterpiece” by Pandora and received numerous accolades in the press. David Slain, the band’s second album, was released on November 14, 2017.
