Picobots debut album Melanie Griffith released!

SF-EMM member Michael Falk has released his debut album as Picobots titled Melanie Griffith. The album embraces 80’s style production values featuring snappy bass lines, reverb drenched guitars, wailing saxaphones, layered vocal harmonies, synth drums and more! Picobots counts The Human League, early Depeche Mode, and John Carpenter and Vangelis film soundtracks among his influences.

Download the album now for free from Bandcamp.

Doppio (McKay Garner, Adam Tenenbaum) at the Music Video Race Screening Party

p.s. Sorry about the audio. The volume was so loud it just crushed all the frequencies.

The amazing guitar + drums duo Doppio performs a set at The Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco at the Music Video Race Screening Party event. The 48-hour video competition paired Doppio the band with the team The Outer Avenues to put a story to the song “Cobra”—also available on Doppio’s just-released album. This video features a little bit of “Return” followed by the live version of “Cobra”.

Catch Doppio performing around the San Francisco Bay Area. For more info + to get their album:
