Bay Babes: Tricycle Records Releases Compilation Vol. 9

Our friends at Tricycle Records released their 9th compilation album this month featuring a whole lotta women that we dig on. There’s Kendra McKinley, whose “Asleep in Winter” showcases her connective and empathetic lyrics in funky pop with looping pedal work (Performed by Kendra McKinley, recorded and mixed by Scott McDowell at the Henry Miller Memorial Library).

We dig on Micropixie’s “Dark Sight of the Moon,” with its Pink Floyd inspirations and the powerful push against modern day politics on the home front and beyond. It’s electro psych pop dripping with social justice narratives. If you haven't caught it yet, check out her video for "Como Minimo," shot at our beloved Lovejoy's Tea Room in San Francisco. 

Another favorite is Beckylin and Her Druthers with “You Ain’t Woman Enough”…to take my man. Damn straight. A nice and exciting find for any country fans. Beckylin and Her Druthers are bluegrass and twangin’ and powerfully sassy. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

Historian releases “Witchhazel” off forthcoming LP

The Deli is pleased to present “Witchhazel,” the new single off Historian’s forthcoming LP, Distractions. The Los Angeles-based psych rock band is always experimenting with sounds and distortions. “Witchhazel” grows and reverberates and glides through the room with some major Deerhunter moments. Chris Karman’s rich vocals call like an incantation and the tune is reminiscent of Magnetic Fields, with experimental realist pop vibes. Distractions will be released on January 17th 2020. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

Copyslut's latest video "Maker's Mark"

Oakland-based queer band Copyslut released their video for "Maker's Mark" this fall. The song is about "...inherited trauma, sparking its inspiration from one of the most famous oral legends in Mexican folklore: 'La Llorona.' Filled with healing pleasure and queer artistic celebration, the music video takes its audience from the streets of the trans district in San Francisco into a world and culture they push to make possible..." The sexified cabaret video is dark and captivating accompaniment to the song and we will leave it up to your viewing pleasure. -Lucille Faulkner

Magic Magic Roses and Cindy Nov 20 at Minnesota Street

Magic Magic Roses brings us soothing, sweet folk rock with poppy beats and harmonies that make for happiness. The EP River came out this fall and the video for “River” makes me proud to be a Californian and a curly-haired lady. Magic Magic Roses are sure to put on a delight of a performance. Also on the bill is San Francisco’s Cindy. Self-described sad rock, it's slow shoe gazey with the occasional poppier punkier touches. Their album comes out in 2020 and we're ready, Freddy. Both groups are playing tomorrow night, November 20 at the Minnesota Street Project (presented by Lonesome Station) and we’re happily pushing you attend. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

Wolf Jett releases new music video and announces tour

Santa Cruz-based Wolf Jett (the solo project of Chris Jones, formerly in Scary Little Friends) just released the video for their song “One Sweet Day.” It’s a folk gospel song with some killer slide guitar, that upright bass and catchy melodies. Recorded live at the Hill House with a no-shoes vibe, this song is a nice little taste of what’s to come on Wolf Jett’s upcoming tour. First up they’re playing at the Miner’s Foundry in Nevada City on November 29. Check out the rest of their tour fall tour dates and cozy up to catch them. -Lucille Faulkner
