This moody, short-form IDM uncovers some neat shapes and textures throughout its truncated length.
Simultaneously spacious and frenetic, Fierce Creatures mix the breathy lo-fi of Broken Social Scene with the barked urgency of Arcade Fire. Fun stuff.
This folktronica is more folk than 'tronica, I'd say, but it's all around cheery and nice on the ears.
I devour noisy art-pop cassettes like secret candy. This one is no exception. Off the delightfully buzzy tape EP Medicine, here's the wild, squiggly ride 'Medicine Girl'.
The Bird Calls and Other Various Sounds for Storytelling EP from Fresno's lo-fi psychedelic rockers Grand Canopy is delightful all the way through, but I think track two tops the bunch.
Fresno needs more venues for all ages shows, especially for the local artist we have here. Every genre of music is represented in our town, I sponsor a local Heavy Metal Band here, the only problem is there are limitations for shows because of age restrictions to the popular venues. I thought about opening my own but the cost just to rent a piece of property big enough was insane. I've talk to local promoters here and they all feel the same way. I ask anyone who reads this to just go out and support the local bands, most play for free at the venues just to get heard, some even pay to be on the venues stage. I have to say there is a lot of talent here, rival to LA, but LA has the venues.
