End your spring quarter with a bang with Blackbird Blackbird!
Blackbird Blackbird is the moniker of San Francisco-based wünderkind Mikey Maramag. His unique style of dreamy folktronica recalls influences from all ends of the musical spectrum; deeply textured, hypnotic songs pay homage to psychedelic pop the likes of Caribou and Washed Out, while the warmth of analogue instrumentation spliced with digital artifacts hints at contemporaries James Blake, Four Tet and Mount Kimbie.
Freedom Fry - Bio::
In February of 2015, Freedom Fry started the year at #1 on The Hype Machine with their first in a series of new singles, “Shaky Ground (Hey Na Na Na).” They toured the west coast with Belgian sensation Stromae, all followed up with a Los Angeles residency during the month of May.
The French/American duo, whose stage name is a satire on US & French relations during the Iraq war, originated from Los Angeles, and all the warmth and sunshine of California tends to heavily bleed into their sound, which skirts the lines between pop, folk and indie-rock, always blended with danceable rhythms and a sing-a-long chorus.
The Brevet - Bio::
Ccomprised of Aric Chase Damm (lead vocals, guitar), Michael Jones (backing vocals, piano) and David Aguiar (backing vocals, drums), is a young American band from sunny Southern California. They have a mutual love for making powerful music in their mobile home park studio that hugs the 405 freeway. By combining Americana rock, sweeping orchestral tracks, gang vocals, unforgettable choruses and connective emotional lyrics, The Brevet passionately spills their hearts through cinematic sounds which has led to fans and critics labeling them as one of the first in the ‘Epic Americana’ genre.
