A few months ago we were given the opportunity to talk to Dimitri Farougias, bass player for the “bi-coastal” alternative rock group, Faulkner. Working with some of the most iconic names in music, this band is here to turn some heads and make a name for themselves in the music industry. Keep reading to find out about the background of the band, what it was like working with RZA of Wu-Tang Clan, and the response to their debut EP. Continue reading
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.

Josh Savage is a prime example that determination and courage go a long way when pursuing a dream. Supported only by a love for his craft, the singer/songwriter tours the world, recruiting supporters one living room at a time. You see, this 26 year old tours on request, booking private shows in people’s homes and performing for intimate crowds. This, according to the singer, “allows artists to find their feet and to get an idea of how the industry works before being influenced by someone that’s already in the industry. You can actually be yourself.” (sofarsounds.com)

“What makes us different is that we always try to make each song we create different and original with lyrics and sound. We want our songs to have meaning and texture, we want to set ourselves apart by taking people on a trip with our youth. This album we’re releasing is called, “The Day Moon,” because whenever it’s broad day, or before sunset, there’s a day moon that’s just so beautiful; that acts as a beauty mark in the sky. The vibes you get are too surreal sometimes.”
A passion that acts as a canvas, we sat down with Nicholas Bodenstadt of The Howlies to talk about the ambitions and idea behind San Diego’s latest “psychedelic surf rock” band.
Weird Fun is, as they like to call it, a “soup kitchen rock,” band from San Francisco CA. The group consists of Mitchell Marinaro (vocals and rhythm guitar), Grace Cardinale (drums), Alex Santana (lead guitar), River Manochio (bass) and Alex Varni (“hype man”). Let me just put out there, on the record, if you haven’t seen this group live, you haven’t been going to the right shows man.
