The small but potent Single Screen Records has played home to some of the more vigorous sounds coming out of San Diego in the past several years, releasing material by popular R&B punks The Sess, the Bowie-esque Red Feathers and the morbid folk of Vision of a Dying World. With a busy slate of new 7-inches scheduled for the near future, Single Screen shows what it has to offer at this showcase featuring the dystopian thump of Beaters, the broken instrumental hip-hop grooves of Illuminauts and the eccentric, soulful Charles Musket at Soda Bar.

Tomorrow night: Spirit Photography/Bulbs/Pretty Totally/Jeans Wilder/Mark Lewis

Sunday, July 12

There’s been some interesting noise recently seeping out of San Diego’s underground recesses, and it can be easy to miss if you’re not keeping your ears open. Here’s the deal: Spirit Photography consists of two members of fellow local charmers Christmas Island (and a bassist), but their feedback looping techniques chart a more ominous path than the other band’s innocent garage-pop. Meanwhile, Jeans Wilder is a one-man operation from an ex-Fantastic Magic member and current Heavy Hawaii associate who turns incredibly bad vibes into beautifully stoned slow jams, and Mark Lewis unceremoniously turns the room into a whirring, churning machine with improvised sounds more intriguing than the majority of guitar-bass-drums lineups in town. Considering that out-of-towners Bulbs (ex-Axolotl) and Pretty Totally hail from San Francisco’s avant-noise hotbed, this one signals promise for you progressive types out there. At Radio Room.


Tuesday night: Mika Miko/Audacity/Beaters/Shannon and the Clams

Flat Worms 7" on Marc Riley's (of the Fall) Best of 2016 BBC 6 show, Oh Boland LP on Pitchfork's Best of 2016, Susan LP on Dirty Laundry TV's Best of 2016, Teach Me 7" on ListenSD's Best of 2016

Happy holidays, all, hope you get through them okay. I know this can be a strange time of year for a number of you, myself included. Happy to be here to share some mighty fine recent news in the land of Volar. Marc Riley, one of the originally songwriters in the Fall, has a BBC 6 show, and just last week discovered the debut 7" by Flat Worms on Volar. He says some very kind words here about the nine-minute mark, played them again the next day, and then included them in his best of 2016 show this past Monday. We're down to the last few of our black vinyl copies. Also this past week, Pitchfork put out its list of

Debut LP and tour by Irish trio Oh Boland and debut 7" by Teach Me, solo LP by Matt Lamkin (Soft Pack)

STREAM/ORDER/DL the debut limited clear LP Spilt Milk by  Irish punk-slop-power-pop trio Oh Boland
Formed in 2012, the trio of songwriter Niall Murphy(Guitars, Vocals) Eanna MacDonnchadha (bass) and Simon McDonagh (drums/vocals) came together to form Oh Boland over the course of drunken pub crawls in their small town of Tuam, Ireland.The band eventually recorded a couple of EPs with Brian Kelly of So Cow, and began venturing out into Galway City, leading to involvement with Dublin-based collective Popical Island and their release of the Delphi split LP with fellow Ireland indie-poppers Me and My Dog.
The Delphi recordings brought them together with producer Mark Chester, who makes his own music as Ginnels and plays in No Monster Club. After the band realized they were sitting on a number of songs, they decided to go back in with Chester to record this first full-length, Spilt Milk, over the course of two days over Halloween weekend 2014 in a cottage in one of the most isolated parts o…

Matt Lamkin of the Soft Pack and Silver Shadows West Coast tour, Teach Me and Keepers live w/ the Spits

First off, a moment of reflection about the Oakland fires. I've been in my own state of shock and grief and am slowly getting back to focusing on this other stuff here. My thoughts go out to everyone involved. I had friends who were there that night and made it out safely; I had quite a few more who were close to going and decided not to. The first show I ever attended in the Bay was at a warehouse (the French Fry Factory), and the first show I ever played there was at the Ghost Town Gallery. I have more musical ties to friends in the Bay and Oakland specifically than anywhere else outside of where I live, and the creative freedom and resourcefulness of the music and arts community there is the richest that I know of in the country. There have been many thoughtful posts and articles regarding that scene in particular, the culture at large, and the nature of warehouse spaces like Ghost Ship. I was asked to do an interview for NBC San Diego and only agreed to help spread that messa…
