New music & video from Bart Davenport

Hi everybody. Now that the kiddies are ready to go back to their 9-5′s (or rather 8:30 to 2:50′s) it’s time to put my summer lazy down and get back into the swing of this thing. No better way to restart than share some new stuff from the hardest working man in Oakland, Bart Davenport. My good friends at Antenna Farm Records have given the thumbs up to sharing a couple slices of pop deliciousness from his upcoming release Palaces. Hope you dig it.

No one but Bart could step right up to the edge of insufferable cheese and make it seem so sincere. Crush on your corny! Palaces is out September 9. A CD release party is happening at Cafe Du Nord on the 19th

How do I do this?

Hello there and welcome to my blogosphere deflowering. Posting everyday is a pipe dream (I’m a father of two so whaddya want from me?). I do hope to get stuff up here a couple times a week though. For my premier post I thought I’d start things off with something old and something new.


For the old I’m kinda cheating; though this slab of seminal garage punk originally appeared in 1966 the good folks at Sundazed Records reissued it back in 2004. The Sonics were a blast of white hot energy out of Tacoma, Washington that took the R&B/rock fusion of local favorites like The Wailers and The Kingsmen to unimagined extremes for the time. Lead singer Gerry Roslie wails like a cranked out white Little Richard. Still some of the raunchiest rock ever recorded.

Check out a couple of tracks:

Bama Lama Bama Loo
Psycho

The new: I’m going with the lovely debut by local San Francisco band The Botticellis pressed into my grubby mits by my good friends at Antenna Farm Records. Old Home Movies is packed with beautifully crafted pop filled with Big Star type hooks backed with vintage keyboard washes under soulful croony vocals. It’s coming out May 13th but here’s a preview, the title track plus one of my favorites:

Quick note about the tunes

The mp3s on this blog are to give folks a little taste. Imagine they're those little pouches on the bag your Sunday paper comes in. You know, the one's with a packet containing just enough toothpaste to brush your teeth once or twice. They are left up for a limited time. If you find something you like support the artists by dragging your friends to their shows and/or buying their CDs/records/schwag. If you are the artist (or their label/representative) and don't want an mp3 on here, please email me (mike@nowhearthismusic.com) and I'll remove it posthaste.
