The Fresh and Onlys
The Fresh and Onlys
The Bay Area's own Fresh & Only's have really come into their own since I last saw the group, with lineup changes that nixed tambourine girls and took the band away from the rest of the
garage rock pack into something darker and different. A mix of Joy Division and nostalgic guitar rock, reminiscent of the most rockin' Cure songs spliced with a tiny bit of spaghetti western scores, the Fresh & Only's will surely please just about any discerning music lover. At a live show there's twang, jangle, and psychedelia aplenty.

Noise Pop: How did you meet?

Shayde Sartin of F&O's: A record store. That evolved into many nights getting drunk together and eventually playing music together.

NP: Pitchfork recently called y'all "Jangle Rockers," what do you think about that?

S: There are worse things to be called. And we do love to jangle. I would say we have no problem with name calling.

NP: Are you excited about your Noise Pop show?

S: Very excited for the show. Ramona at Bottom of the Hill is great and I always enjoy playing there. It has a very San Francisco feel to it as well. Noise Pop has always been an exciting week as well.

NP: Do you use San Francisco as inspiration for creating, and/or what is your main inspirations, what are you fascinated by?

S: If you're not influenced by your immediate surroundings then you probably looking in the wrong direction. San Francisco has always been a huge part of our inspiration. It's really a small
town so there's always a very intimate feeling. Not just with the people but the places and the history as well.

NP: What do you try to bring to your live shows (good vibes, lucky charms, etc)?

S: I feel like we all try to bring something different. But collectively our goal is total domination.

Ringo Deathstarr
Ringo Deathstarr
Ringo Deathstarr is a shoegaze band from Austin, TX. Heavily influenced by The Jesus and Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine, their music has been described as "a glorious racket, swathed in feedback and attitude." They are currently signed to SVC Records, and their debut, self-titled EP was released in October 2007. In September 2009 the 'In Love' limited edition 7" single was released by SVC Records.
Tennis System
Tennis System
Sharing their namesake with a song by predecessor noise pop group The Lilys, TENNIS SYSTEM are keeping the legacies of Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, and the Jesus and Mary Chain alive with their expansive, catchy-as-hell pop songs. Matty Taylor and Misha Bullock are masters of loud and dirty anthems, but rising above the noise that blankets them are Taylor's beautifully sung, dreamy lyrics inspired by both love and art, from the drawings of Egon Schiele to the writing of Aldous Huxley.Teenagers, the group's second LP, was released by Kill/Hurt in December of 2011.
