Pregnant, the musical emanations of one Daniel Trudeau, released “Pottery Mill” earlier this year- Aprilish. The psychedelic, folksy experimental soundscapes appeal to my inner psycho-folksy mountain man.

Bay Area natives, The Mallard, released their album Yes On Blood early 2012 on Castle Face Records and have been playing around for the past year and working on some new stuff to be released very soon (hopehope). . . They’re playing this year’s Noise Pop fest in SF and i think at SXSW

Unknown Mortal Orchestra released II this year and are on the road until forever, check their site for when they’ll be in your town, and pick up the album because it needs you. They are groovy New Zealanders with a lo-fi psychedelic coating of awesome.
