Your Fearless Leader
San Francisco band, Your Fearless Leader (YFL), began in 2015 as the solo project of guitarist and lead singer, Marcus Ghiasi. What was initially a personal diary soon progressed into a novel, influenced by the inclusion of each musical element in the band today. Incorporating the sound of a small orchestra into their music, YFL challenges the generic flavor of indie rock to create something fresh and invigorating. The band’s diversity plays a critical role in their versatile sound, at times reminiscent of dancehall or baroque pop with stadium rock energy.

YFL released their debut EP, Retrospection, in 2015. “With its arresting violin lines, propulsive drums, and anthemic sonic arrangements, “Retrospection” provided a refreshing and distinct sound to a genre overly-cluttered in the digitized century.” -BayBridged

After spending three years writing and evolving their sound, YFL released back-to-back EPs titled RITES and Call My Name (2018). Its widespread embrace allowed them to cement their place as one of the Bay Area’s most prominent indie rock bands. They continue their trend of reinvention as they prepare for the release of new material later this year.
Battlehooch
Battlehooch
Battlehooch is the kind of band you thought went extinct along with landline phones and cassette tapes. In one sense they’re a band from another, sturdier era: a band that releases consistently quality material on a consistent basis, a band that doesn’t sacrifice creative drive for commercial interest, a band that grows and evolves with each successive release. From the beautiful madcap mess of debut LP Piecechow to the more refined yet still quite surrealistic jams on Hot Lungs to a cool, polished psych-rock sheen on 2014’s Wink EP, Battlehooch has proven itself as a band built to last. They may possess an old-school mindset, but their music is diverse and daring enough to fit perfectly into this wild new century.

Formed in San Francisco – the birthplace of psychedelia – it’s fitting that the six-piece collective echoes the city’s tie-dyed past in its own compositions. However, the group isn’t content with becoming a mere tribute to a time period they never lived through. Instead, Battlehooch updates the sound of psychedelia for a new generation, one that can now access dozens of genres and millions of songs with a few clicks of an iPhone. Battlehooch reflects this modern trend of manic music consumption: on any of their many releases, the listener will be treated to a sonic smorgasbord, bouncing from hard rock to dance-pop to mind-warping head trips to flirtations with electronica and jazz and Afrobeat and everything in between within the span of a few minutes, sometimes even seconds.

In 2018, Battlehooch partnered with Prizefighter Records to release new singles and do reissues of past albums (including on cassette for the first time!). In addition, they will also be touring the US west coast and in Europe.
Tino Drima
Tino Drima is a cauldron of then, now, and what will be. Crooning hell harmonies over charmed, ripping beats Tino channels music that feels like it has always existed. Think the inter-dimensional 50s radio in Old Man Cooper’s house that portals Classics from a more excellent world into his living room and everybody wants to hang out and listen and maybe stay the night even though it’s p weird there
