Back in January at SOMA our sweet friends from Penniback Records presented the Beach Goons along with Junkie, The Crudes, Espresso, Kut U Up, and Effe Emme! Check out moments of the night that were captured on film through the lens of @motherof9pam!
With their newest track, Stray Monroe establish themselves as “completely different musicians”. In honor of the release of their new single/music video, we spoke to the four components of the San Diego based indie rock band about their new sound, their goals, and risking everything for music.
Capturing the perfect scenery for a music video is hard to do, but that is exactly what Maadwest from L.A. did with their brand new video for their song “Be My Show”. This duet sang by Tipper Newton and frontman Matty McNamara, is the second song off their LP “I Can’t Believe We’re All Idiots”, filmed in the always beautiful Yosemite National Park. The video is filmed by Mikai Karl, who travels and captures beauty in any setting, with a relaxing track.
In terms of local music, there are so many different genre’s out there, it’s as diverse as the world we live in today. I’ve never thought about it in this light, but music is like cooking, some of the most unlikely combinations end up being the new best thing. San Diego band, Waldo, is breaking boundaries and claiming a place in the music scene with their unique and unreplicable sound, which they claim as “spaghetti skhlaw,” and live music mojo.
