THE SESHEN
THE SESHEN
The Seshen is a 7-piece Bay Area-based band whose songs mix live and electronic elements. Their music utilizes electronic textures to suggest complex emotions and vivid imagery but also to blur the distinction between the abstract and the familiar. The Seshen takes influences from electronic music, hip-hop, pop, R&B, dub, and indie rock to create beat-driven compositions with a strong emotional core. Driving beats laced with Afro-Caribbean percussion, thick bass lines, rich keyboards and textured electronic sampling provide the foundation for lyricists Lalin St. Juste and Akasha Orr, whose dreamy vocals create an ethereal sonic landscape.

Guy Fox entered this world at an impressive 635lbs 8oz and has established a following of all-night-dance-enthusiasts and local musicians alike. The band is made up of northeastern transplants, all of whom are students of music steeped in different idioms. The result is an explosion of talent and eclectic songwriting-- an apt description for a band that takes its name from a 17th century assassin that literally tried blow up Britain’s Parliament. It's an experience that finds them flirting with a number of genres- indie, funk, soul, and afropop- while keeping their audience glued to the dancefloor.

"The first thing you'll notice about San Francisco singster/songster Ash Reiter is her voice—a breathy, smoky little thing that hints at Chan Marshall and Jolie Holland, and sounds well suited for the coffeehouse circuit. That was before she formed a full band to back her up. Nowadays Reiter's music moves a little more, the quintet (also called Ash Reiter) providing loads of hooks and layered guitars that wonderfully contrast that wispy voice. It's all on display on the group's latest, Paper Diamonds, a record that's folky enough to maintain some of its intimacy, and poppy enough to keep from fading into the background. I like where this young woman is headed." --Portland Mercury
