THE SHE'S
THE SHE'S
The She’s are born and bred San Francisco gals who create garage-pop beachy tunes that make you want to fast forward to summer. The group is lead by vocalist Hannah Valente, harmonized by guitarist Eva Treadway, and perfected by drummer Sinclair Riley and bassist Sami Perez. Since emerging into the tightly-knit San Francisco music scene, The She’s garnered a ton of success early on. They were included in The San Francisco Guardian’s “Bands On The Rise,” and hold recurring features on The Bay Bridged. Since their inception, they’ve been frequently invited to play at most well-known San Francisco venues, opening for bands like Girls, Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, and Yuck.

The She’s are more than just your average girl band. These talented BFFs have been playing music together since elementary school-and their closeness shines through in their perfectly tuned three part harmonies. With songs about hanging out, love, and dreaming about boys, these ladies are a swoon-worthy bunch who can make anyone feel giddy. The She’s most recently released a lo-fi ’60s-inspired album- Then It Starts to Feel Like Summer, and are back with a more mature and nuanced release to bring you right back to that sandy place in your daydreams.

"Sun-dazed harmonies, tight, toe-tapping rhythms and the kind of beachy pop you’d listen to in a convertible on vacation.” –7×7 Magazine
The Bilinda Butchers
The Bilinda Butchers
The bilinda butchers are a dream pop duo from San Francisco who take their name from Bilinda Butcher of My Bloody Valentine. Comprised of multi-instrumentalists Michal & Adam, the group writes songs that contrast idealistic nostalgia with romantic uncertainty and sorrow.
Trails and Ways
Trails and Ways
Trails and Ways make bossanova dream pop from a bedroom studio in Oakland, CA. After graduating from UC Berkeley, lead singers Emma Oppen and Keith Brower Brown took off–one to Brazil and the other to Spain. Both learned the new territory and languages through nylon strings and percussion. After months abroad, they came home with a vision; to craft a sound with the pensive warmth of Brazilian jazz, the tight songcraft of Latin pop, and the hypnotic rough edges of basement dream pop.

The two female and two male members of Trails and Ways all sing, braiding their voices down landscapes of tight percussion, reverbed guitar hooks and tidal synthesizers. The lyrics are political graffiti and lovers’ unsaid conversations, crossing at the borders between Spanish, Portuguese and English.

The band makes its home in Oakland’s tight-knit scene of jazz pop experimenters and R&B producers. They play visceral shows powered by the force of their four matching crystals: amethyst, agate, larimar, turquoise. Through 2012, they rode a swell of singles and covers, and are currently working on their debut album.
