Cave Clove

An ambitious follow-up to Cave Clove’s eponymous 2016 full-length studio album, Dollars to Tokens (EP, slated for release 5.3.19) demonstrates a potent formula for why vocalist/songwriter Katie Colver and her band are on a fast track emerging as one of the Bay Area’s most compelling new acts. Dollars to Tokens presents five unflinching chronicles of Colver’s own emotional yet often existential triumphs and struggles. Set to psych-rock infused production brimming with electrifying guitars and a West Coast Americana songwriting sensibility, Colver explores what it means to follow one’s most fervent dreams, while addressing all of the risks and sacrifices that such a journey entails. Set aside some time to delve into these anthemic stunners while Colver and Cave Clove dive to the depths of her idiosyncratic psyche.

"This EP is about the dance between self-actualization and self-sabotage," Cave Clove frontwoman Katie Colver says of her band's new five-song release Dollars to Tokens. "A vigorous impulse to experience things as deeply and fully as possible has haunted me for my whole life. I'm quick to throw myself into the fire, push myself right to the edge of my comfort zone, or beyond, with a goal of becoming stronger. These new songs reflect a sense of recklessness and coming to terms with what’s sacred in this life."

Agouti

Even in the diverse do-it-yourself San Francisco music scene, local psych-rock band Agouti stands out. Singer/songwriter Carmen Caruso built her own instruments. She built her own studio. And, through Agouti, she built her own sound: eclectic and wildly unrestricted, nodding knowingly to generations of psych and 70’s hard rock.

Drawn from a dream Caruso had, new single “Dragons” sees her envisioning being able to fly away from anything, escaping from the turmoil below in a visually-drawn metaphor for anxiety. Upbeat and melodic, Dragons stands out for its syncopated patterns and bare synth interludes, riding a three-and-a-half minute high that carries listeners through with its lighthearted message.

Drawing sounds and ideas from artists ranging from Pink Floyd to Tame Impala, Agouti’s sonic disposition is thick and irregular, breaching walls of synth noise with guitar, catchy lead lines, and rhythmic bass, tied together with Caruso’s light melodies and cathartic vocal stylings.
