Weekend

“…what happens if No Age traded in good vibes and instead got real angry from the depths of a muffled cavern. It’s about four minutes of build up, windy moans and plodding drums giving way to a balls to the wall freakout as the whole song collapses on itself.” -Fader

"There’s a paralysing angst which looms large over the first few minutes of ‘Youth Haunts’ before its menacing drum-beat cuts loose and explodes into a crazed, bruised, hell-bent apocalypse.” -Transparent

"Of all the local acts to emerge over the past year, none excite us more than San Francisco based Weekend. While there might be a temptation to lump the mildly noisy quartet in with the most recent wave of excellent reverb-drenched buzz bands, the sound here really pays more homage to Psychocandy era Jesus Mary & Chain, with a similar pop sensibility and love for tinnitus-inducing feedback as the shoegaze pioneers. -7x7

Ty Segall (solo)
"You're not going to hear many rock records that'll kick you square in the pants quite like this one this year, provided Segall doesn't up and crank another one out by December; the kid's got heart, brains, and quite an ear for a hook, and he throws himself body and soul into these tunes. " -Pitchfork

"Burying '60s sing-alongs and dance crazes beneath waves of reverb and giddy thud, Ty Segall has carved out his own shelf in the SF neo-psych garage alongside SF compatriots and collaborators Sic Alps and Thee Oh Sees." -RCRDLBL

"At the tender age of 23, San Francisco's incredibly prolific nouveau garage/psych tunesmith Ty Segall is poised on the brink of widespread success." -LA Times

Terry Malts

"If you’re on the prowl for a fresh local find, try Terry Malts: this post-punk trio is refreshingly loud, refreshingly Ramones-venerating, and undeniably your warehouse dance party initiators. "-The Bay Bridged

Whirl

". Hailing from northern California, Whirl provide us with everything: vocal melodies that make you tear with joy, while the guitars puncture your eardrums in a welcome wave of bliss. Shoegaze is not dead. It’s been resurrected by bands like Whirl, who understand that melodies on top of noise are in fact, the perfect needle." -TDOA

"Their tagline on myspace is 'LOUD' and I can imagine they’re shooting for a bit of My Bloody Valentine heritage. It may be loud, but its great shoegaze songwriting." -yvynyl
