The Blank Tapes
The Blank Tapes
THE BLANK TAPES is the moniker of Los Angeles & San Francisco based musician & artist, Matt Adams, who has produced over 10 albums of 1960's psychedelic-surf-pop-folk-rock on an old 8 track cassette tape recorder in various garages, basements, sheds & bedrooms across the California Coast.

Electric Shepherd (Record Release)
Electric Shepherd (Record Release)
"Warrior music...driving and strong...last two tracks, which happen to total over twenty minutes combined, are worth digging into and are where Electric Shepherd shines."
SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

... "Spacey, surfy San Francisco trio is very much an ensemble project...heavy guitar effects rule the day..."Chem Trails" has an absorbing vocal melody....we like the direction the band is going." -MUSIC CONNECTION Magazine

"The Seventies are back with a vengeance. And jam-rock trio Electric Shepherd is perhaps the most staggeringly talented outfit in the local revivalist scene. Its members are innovators, rather than mere imitators, and their work vacillates from gnarly art-rock to loping, minimalist blues. "Mildred Harris" could hold its own against any Zeppelin tune."-East Bay Express

"If you carry deep-seated nostalgia for the epic rock shows you missed during the '60s — or listen to the Velvet Underground's Bootleg series on repeat — you should probably check these guys out. Expect luscious guitar riffs, sexy bass lines, compulsory dancing, and a wonderfully spaced out experience."-San Francisco Bay Guardian
Black Hole Oscillators
Black Hole Oscillators
Black Hole Oscillation, Levitation & Creation Epics:
Soon after time had chances to cool, the oscillations began to begin purposely emitting hyper vigilant and coherent soundscapes perpetuating the gravitational-magnetic-electric/atom/molecule multidimensional universe as we appear to have come to understand it. Black Hole Oscillators are the attempt at a fluid transitional language that is anticipated to bring about the greater connections with the original [Hyper Dimensional] object. We invite you to listen and contribute to this paradigm shift that we BHO's refer to as the 'LOVE Compass'.
Down Dirty Shake
Down Dirty Shake
The Down Dirty Shake is a rock n roll band based out of San Francisco. Formed in 2006 by the founding four members in their hometown of Merced CA. They've since moved up and down northern California performing anywhere and everywhere. The group is deeply influenced by the soul that was the 60's, and the central valley blues. It's very apparent in the music that they sound nothing like today’s bands. The Shake has put out two self produced albums, a self-titled in 2011 and a live album from the Hopmunk Tavern in early 2012. As heard on the album the boys pride themselves on the live shows, incorporating: a didgeridoo, an organ, 2 electric guitars, a bass, drums, shakers, dancers, and a very energetic front man. The shows are guaranteed to be an experience, always unpredictable and tons of fun for everyone. As they say before every show "we're the down dirty shake and we came to get butt naked"
