Rademacher
Rademacher
"Rademacher" could be the name of the next rollercoaster at Six Flags. These guys have been up, down, and tossed around, with lineup shifts and rearrangements galore. But the thread that keeps it all together is frontman Malcom Sosa's consistent, persistent songwriting skill. It's a wild ride, and their music is a joyful expression of it.
Ornery Ones
Ornery Ones
Ornery Ones hail from California’s Central Valley, a land that produced the likes of Buck Owens and Merle Haggard. While the band’s sound is more rooted in in the punk, surf, and garage sounds of the 60′s and 70′s, the band chose it’s name in part to pay tribute to the pioneers of outlaw country. The current line-up consists of James Brittain-Gore on guitar, Kaleb Saldate on Bass, and Andy Saldate on drums with James being the primary vocalist. The band just recently played their first show in June and plan on recording a demo in July of 2012.
Niilo Smeds
Niilo Smeds
Niilo Smeds is a California-based musician supporting his
self-released debut, "Helicopter Circles." His music carries echoes of
Leonard Cohen and Lou Reed along with Central Valley forebears like
Pavement and Grandaddy.

"Beautiful, clever, and unpretentious." - GOOD

"Endowed with the sort of innate warmth you find in the vocal reaches
of Bill Callahan and his ilk." - Sound On The Sound

"The sound of working-class rock gospel, steeped in Central Valley
dust, shots of whiskey, and simmering blood." - Fresno Famous
So Long Williamsburg
So Long Williamsburg
This San Joaquin Valley based musical project has been described by multiple listeners in the same basic terms. "It's like it went through a journey," was one listener's impression. A different listener described one song "like an epic." This idea of story telling is one of the most important values of the band, even hinted at by the name "So Long Williamsburg." Along with the indie rock style, which focuses more on an energetic musical experience, this music stays true to the folk idea of finding meaning in the stories of life.
