In The Press

  • William Tomer, The 405

    “The album [My Neon’s Dead] comes after vocalist/violinist Sivan Lioncub nearly died due to a penicillin allergy. Now fully recovered, Lioncub and her bandmates have proved they are back and better than ever on ‘San Andreas.’ The track drips with swagger as the band works its way through a soaring melody and an angelic chorus.”

    - William Tomer, The 405
  • Mike Oliger, The Wild Honey Pie

    “Oakland-based, brother/sister-led quintet The Tambo Rays play a sweeping brand of sun-soaked pop rock that exemplifies the vintage appeal of golden-era Blondie while falling within the same symphonic spectrum as modern indie pop acts like the Shout Out Louds.”

  • Bandcamp

    “Hot Flash Heat Wave have made a glowing record about moving on—a rare album that sighs with wistfulness while still having fun.”

    - Bandcamp
  • Wonderland

    “Mirroring the upbeat sound, the video is full of fun filled psychedelic imagery shot in an East Oakland warehouse. Exhibiting some of front-woman Sara DaMert’s wildly catchy dance moves, the uplifting video reflects the positive pop-rock feel of the upcoming EP.”

  • Self-titled Mag

    “Hot Flash Heat Wave switch gears from garage rock to dream pop on SOAKED.

  • Chris Deville, Stereogum

    “They’re a pop-rock band who would have hit my Strokes/Weezer/Phantom Planet sweet spot back in 2002 (I mean that as a major compliment) and who are giving me pleasant memories of that era 15 years later.”

    - Chris Deville, Stereogum
