Manar The Magic (feat. Mike Watt)
Who better than former Minutemen bassist Mike Watt to cameo on "Manar The Magic," the latest track from fellow Californians Tera Melos, who share the penchant for melding mediums. The electronics, channeling a toddler repeatedly rolling up and down a keyboard, provide a nice groundwork for the band's signature start stop sound. "Manar The Magic" is from the forthcoming EP Zoo Weather, the d-side to last year's Patagonian Rats out Februray 22 on Sargent House.

I Heard You Say
It's nice when you pick up a new drummer and actually return to form, the fortunate fate of the Vivian Girls as evidenced on new single "I Heard You Say." The group's third album and first after Ali Koehler booked it for Best Coast, Share The Joy is a title that playfully jabs at the sad and sultry crooning that makes these girls so great. More akin to the rough and tumble garage pop of the debut self-titled than 2009's Everything Goes Wrong, it'll please the veterans and newcomers alike, so it's back to cry clap cry clap for everyone.

Once A Servant
Psychic Friend is Will Schwartz (Imperial Teen/Hey Willpower), Patty Schemel (Hole/Juliette Lewis) and Bo Boddie. They are debuting at this year's Noise Pop Festival in San Francisco on Friday , February 25 at Rickshaw Shop.Having spent the last few years on various dance floors around the world, Will moved to LA to pursue the now whats. He found a keyboard with a piano sound and started writing songs in his bedroom. Awakening to the alienation of the Southern California dream, he began to write big orchestrated pop songs about his transitory life, depression, love, food service, and trying to function without a twitter account. Kind of like the Brill Building re-imagined, or Carole King via Serge Gainsbourg. He asked Patty if she wanted to play drums on some song ideas, and then the inspiration began to ricochet and the temperature started to rise. Patty introduced Will to Bo who happened to have engineered some big time Grammy type stuff, and the rest is what making music is- a Psychic Friend.
