Nude Beach
Nude Beach
Chuck Betz, Ryan Naideau, and Jim Shelton have been performing as Nude Beach since 2008. Their records, two full-length albums and a forthcoming double-LP due out on the Don Giovanni label, occupy a unique rock ‘n’ roll plane of existence that finds harmony between radio-friendly giants like Tom Petty and reclusive underground kooks like Bill Fox. As a trio of musicians, they are loose without lapsing into sloppiness, earnest sans cheese, knowledgeable minus pretension. Over the course of a set as the band whips from one song to the next, they will echo the tones and moods of Springsteen, The Only Ones, The Flamin’ Groovies, The Replacements, and Badfinger, as well as anyone who released a record on Sire between ’77 and ’81. But when three people have been playing together in a band for as long as Nude Beach has, they begin to substitute influence for telepathy. Betz’s wailing Telecaster never collides with Naideau’s thrilling drum fills or Shelton’s nimble bass lines; call their brand of rock ‘n’ roll whatever you like, but it’s never short of eloquent, ingeniously performed and classically constructed.

Tall Tales and the Silver Lining
After the release of their 2011 album, Nice to Meet You Again, Southern California's, Tall Tales and the Silver Lining decided to try a different approach to producing/distributing their songs for the follow-up project. Front man/songwriter, Trevor Beld-Jimenez, thought it would be an interesting notion to record sets of tracks throughout the year and release one single per season, beginning with summer. Each session was recorded at a different studio, in both Los Angeles and Ventura counties, and various artists were brought on to do the design for each cover, including Kyle Field, Jason Bays, and Seth Pettersen. The Seasonal Singles were initially released online as they were individually completed. The vinyl pressing of Tall Tales and the Silver Lining marks the birth of these twelve songs in a physical media format, and is the band's first release with Rocketship Records.
While performing extensively throughout California, the band has played shows with a myriad of notable acts, such as: Dawes, Kurt Vile, Deer Tick, Little Wings, Kimya Dawson, Blitzen Trapper, Neal Casal, Beachwood Sparks, Langhorne Slim, Mother Hips, Tom Brosseau, and many more. The group is influenced and motivated by a wide array of artists ranging from the likes of The Rolling Stones to Burt Bacharach, Neil Young and Crazy Horse to David Gates, and Minor Threat to Tom Petty. Beld-Jimenez states that the songs on this album find their messages stemming from "friendships, longing, love, an arch-nemesis, partying, depression, joy, babies, and family." Tall Tales and the Silver Lining recently celebrated their fifth anniversary as a band, in one form or another, and this compilation is their sixth release.
Honey Radar
Honey Radar
"Not sure if it's layered solo work or a group or what, but it's great short pop spasms owing equal debts to early New Zealand's South Island groups and Guided by Voices."
-- The Wire

"Honey Radar sound like a low-budget Clientele, all major-key arpeggios somewhere between psych and Felt."
-- Still Single
