The Buttercream Gang
The Buttercream Gang
The Buttercream Gang is a musical collective of friends who grew up together in Napa, CA. Inspired by times and places they've never visited, multi-instrumentalists Bobby Renz, Peter Davies, and Robinson Kuntz have created a sound influenced by sixties garage, pop, and psychedelia sprinkled with African rhythms and Zimbabwean guitar.

"The Buttercream Gang's newest release, Polite Men incorporates African beats, great harmonies, and a plethora of musical styles to create a fun and dancey collection of new-favorites." - The Owl Mag "Young rock bands often like to claim they're doing something new, fresh, and not heard a million times before. Here's one that actually does. This sophomore record is the work of a tight post-punk band playing with African and Latin rhythms, as well as more adventurous, experimental song structures and instrumentation (witness the sax). When it clicks, it's brilliant." --East Bay Express
Surf Club
Surf Club
"When original Craft Spells member Frankie Soto didn't follow the band to Seattle, he gathered his Stockton crew of Eddie Zepeda, Alfonso Robles, and Jose Medina to create sentimental and earnest songs that treat twee rock styles with serious attention to guitar forward rock and roll. Spotted at both this year's Noise Pop and SF Pop festivals, Surf Club is the best news to come out of Stockton since Pavement. Their record Young Love marks the first release ever on the new label Death Party Records, an imprint founded by Portland's Michael Avishay of Ghost Animal." --Impose Magazine
Horrorscopes
Horrorscopes
Horrorscopes is not, as you may have guessed, some kind of goth-metal group, but instead is an indie, electro-groove band from San Francisco, CA. Performing their first show at a Halloween party in 2010, the members of the band Angel Villon (vocals, keys, dressed as a priest), Nick Rose (bass, dressed as Ash Ketchem), Greg Promani (guitar, keys, dressed as Jay Gatsby) and Jon Uribe (drums, dressed
as a banana) impressed all in attendance and continued to do so show after show. Their music, which combines elements of modern electronic bands like Neon Indian or Mount Kimbie with classic acts like Fleetwood Mac is, if nothing else, guaranteed to get you moving. The guys in the band love to dance themselves and know that the party starts with them on stage and spills out into the crowd.

Since their formation, Horrorscopes has released an EP, two singles and a music video, gone on a self-booked tour of California, was chosen as a candidate for band of the month by The Deli SF and is in The Deli's top 20 electronic bands for San Francisco, alongside other bands like Tycho and Geographer. Horrorscopes has been featured on Syffal, Beneath Everything Radio, SF Intercom, Band Soup, New Music Ten, Breakfast for Dinner, Lesser Known Sounds and Fotobabble's band page and made a bunch of friends/inside jokes in the process. Currently, they are working on writing a full album while continuing to play as many shows that come their way.

"It feels like you are being invited into a world where super models make out while breast feeding their pet cheetahs at the sushi bar." - syffal.com
