Local Release (San Francisco): Luke Sweeney, New American Farmers

Luke Sweeney - Adventure: Us
Having been bouncing around the SF scene for some time now the debut of Sweeney's inaugural solo effort provides twelve tracks of psych drenched Bay Area rock. Combined with equal doses of garage pop and surf listeners can bring to mind contemporaries through the past few decades. Jump back to the '70s and reminisce with the voice of T. Rex's Marc Bolan, compare the heart of a string lyricism of Christopher Owens, or the shared instrumental spotlight between guitar and keys of fellow up and comers The Tambo Rays. The majority of the record is ripe with summer imagery and makes a great companion for wandering any coastal city or just about anywhere that can bring you into a dangerously high level of relaxation. Songs you'll be singing in your head after first listen include "Miss Me?", "Boombox", and "Doin' It to You". Sweeney has been traveling up and down California recently and can next be found home in the bay at The Chapel on November 1st with the opening night of a residency from The Stone Foxes [Grab Tickets].

 

New American Farmers - The Farmacology Sessions
Paul Knowles and Nicole Storto's Americana amalgamation has been crafting finely written classic rock influenced music for a decade now since switching from the former title of Mars Arizona. For the new record they have joined forces with an impressive set of players to back the band including Chuck Prophet and Tony Sales (Everyone is Dirty). The opening track brings to mind a mashup of Tom Petty and Sturgill Simpson and from there continues to drive into more rock oriented avenues. Whether the guitar riffs from "Aiming For The Daylight" or the shared harmonies of "Just A Note", The Farmacology Sessions is able to combine Southern Rock and Roll with unrestrained West Coast attitude. You can find the NAF crew hitting all corners of the bay with a show this week at the latest East Bay venue and a trip to Pioneertown next week. Suggested tracks: Turn the lights down and the volume up for "The Garden" and "Aiming For The Daylight" and watch a live performance of "The Garden" below featuring James DePrato on guitar.
