Dirty Beaches & Spotify
Written by Trippe   
Saturday, 16 July 2011 08:00

Aaaaaa, have you tried Spotify yet? We love it here at Fecal Face and have been discovering new music like the one man band, Dirty Beaches, here. Having a limited library of music/ listening to the same old shit was getting very annoying. Spotify, so far, has been a miracle in discovering new music. Also, pretty great that it ties into social networks as well making a breeze to share music you're into with friends... Ok, enough with the free Spotify ad, but for real. Great great great.

We signed up for the premium Spotify account ($10/ month) and you can play music through your phone and can even listen to something like 3,500 songs in offline mode... meaning that you can have your phone on airplane mode (no wifi or phone service/ i.e., an airplane flight) and have up to like 3,500 songs on your phone to listen to... Love this thing! The future in music loving.

If you're into Spotify, you can click here at listen to the tunes we're jammin' here at Fecal Face.

Supe's Oppose Sale of KUSF, Still Up To FCC
Written by Roisin Isner   
Wednesday, 09 February 2011 11:55
savekusf.jpgMirkarimi introduced his resolution to save 90.3 fm KUSF yesterday... From the nearly unintelligible stenographer transcript of the proceedings, the vote breakdown went like this:

Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi: Aye
Supervisor Scott Weiner: Aye.
Supervisor John Avalos: Aye.
Supervisor David Campos: Aye.
President David Chiu: Aye.
Supervisor Carmen Chu: No. [told you so!]
Supervisor Malia Cohen: Aye.
Supervisor Sean Elsbernd: No.
Supervisor Mark Farrell: No. [ again, told you so]
Supervisor Jane Kim: Aye.
Supervisor Eric Mar: Aye.

After the vote, President Chiu's announcement "the Resolution is adopted" was met by applause by the KUSF supporters who showed up for public comment... From what I gleaned, the resolution needed unanimous approval to be effective, so what exactly is the implication of its "adoption"? Basically, it appears that the SF Board of Supervisor's agreed (mostly) to ask the FCC nicely to cancel the sale, but the decision is still in the hands of the FCC. So, we write them. The stupid part is, despite being the Frikkin Communications Commission, this has to be done with snail mail. The address is:

Federal Communications Commission
Office of the Secretary
445 12th Street, SW,
Room TW-A325
Washington, DC 20554

While you're dusting off stamps and trying to remember how letters work, you should write to USF's Michael Bloch- the letters will be included in a public file for the FCC. Michael Bloch's on our side, so be nice.

Michael Bloch
University of San Francisco
College of Arts and Sciences
2130 Fulton Street
San Francisco, CA 94117

Last I heard, KUSF was still $3000 short of the cash they needed to retain a lawyer, information on how to make a tax deductible donation can be found here. - As an aside, the USF Faculty Association Policy Board adopted a similar resolution yesterday, Feb 7 2011, requesting that the University cancel the sale.

Cities - The Downer Party
Written by Roisin Isner   
Friday, 04 February 2011 13:56
"Cities" drops April 1st, 2011, album art by Tony Kincses
If a boat departs from a harbor and during its voyage successfully replaces every single part, is what eventually docks by all rights the same boat? Similarly, if every cell in our bodies is regenerated every seven years, is it still the same body? While I can’t attest to the Biological accuracy of that last example, the question remains: can I rightly call "Cities" the second Downer Party EP?

Forget everything you've ever heard about The Downer Party- who made a name for themselves with 2009's irreverently lighthearted pop debut "Ego Driven Lust Creatures." Since that release, the band has undergone a complete metamorphosis of membership, resulting in a very different kind of project. This Downer Party, arguably distinct from the one we met in 2009, emerges anew with "Cities"- a departure into more contemplative waters, leaving in its wake a richer and more textured sound.

DP2Hi.jpg

from left: Josh Merry (bass/backup vocals), August Churchill (guitar/backup vocals) Sierra Frost (guitar/lead vocals), Chris Crawford (drums)

The EP is at once a love letter to and about cities, speaking aptly about places that can also be people, and indeed a metaphor for self. "Cities" was executed start to finish by the band in Churchill's basement, which in and of itself might fail to impress, until one recalls Frost's veteran career of label representation; this marked decision to work in an insular manner demonstrates the band's commitment to- and consumption with- the growth of the project. The opening track, Country Kids, is an eat-your-heart-out for any San Franciscan, superimposing visions of empathy and idiosyncrasy against the vibrant backdrop of our city. The drums on the song Chicago, which you can listen to here, cleverly mimic a beating heart, at once aligning the physiology of the listener with the music and stripping away their skin with the track's starkly raw intensity. The thesis of the EP, succinctly summarized by the final line of the final (and title) track, reads "and how can it be, that we live with those we love in different cities." Thoughtful lyricism throughout sheds light on complex relationships between people and the places they find themselves, real or imagined. The maturity of these observations is all the more impressive when one considers that their author, Sierra Frost, is still a few months shy of 21.

 
KUSF: Breaking News and a Call to Arms
Written by Roisin Isner   
Wednesday, 02 February 2011 11:24
If you've been on this site, you've already heard about the shady closed door sale of beloved our beloved community station, 90.3 fm KUSF. I'll resist waxing on about the importance of this old and established San Francisco fixture, and instead focus on what we can do. By the time you are done reading this, you could have done (almost) all of them.

As you also might have heard, Supervisor Mirkarimi was scheduled yesterday (2/1/11) to introduce his proposition to block the sale of KUSF to the Board of Supervisors. He asked for a continuance of one week- this is a good thing.

Supervisor Mirkarimi addressing the crowd yesterday, photo by Gina JustGina

This is one week where we can accomplish some serious community organizing. The nub and thrust of the whole thing is to make it blatantly and unavoidably clear that the loss of KUSF is unpopular. The board will resume on Tuesday, February 8th to vote. In the meantime, take every step you can to voice your opinion to the Board of Supervisors, like:

1. Call and Keep Calling- If you don't know your district, check this district map. Then check here for the contact information of your Supervisor here. If you call during normal business hours, your call will be answered by your Supervisor, or an aid. Calling after they close is also effective, jamming up the voicemail can do wonders. Tell them, firmly, that you urge them to stand with Sup. Mirkarimi to block the sale of 90.3, and restore broadcast programming of KUSF.

If you are not registered to vote, call anyway. If you are registered in one district, but live in another, call both supervisors. If your Supervisor is Ross Mirkarimi, call Mark Farrel of D2. It's adjacent, and he's one of the more conservative leaning Supe's.

If you are not a San Francisco resident, but live within the broadcast radius of KUSF, you can still call- call all of them.

2. Email, Email All of Them- emails can also be found on the Board of Supervisors website. A succinct sample would be:
"Dear Supervisor ________, I urge you to vote in favor of Mirkarimi's proposition on Tuesday, February 8th. KUSF is a valuable community asset, and I wholly oppose it's sale. -Best Regards,

______________

Bear in Heaven
Written by Trippe   
Tuesday, 27 July 2010 10:34
Excited to see opening band Beach Fossils most of all and ended up being blown away by headliner Bear in Heaven last night at The Rickshaw Stop here in San Francisco. Beach Fossils bounced about like a high school version of New Order or Joy Division. I like the music. It sounds familiar and a huge fan of New Order, but it just lacked originality and a spark that I was hoping for. In between the two acts is Twin Sister who would be the musical child of Bjork, Blond Redhead and Jamiroquai, of all bands. Although, I could hear them, I was behind a few too many tall fellas to see anything but the light show. (Hey Rickshaw Stop, raise the stage a foot for your smaller patrons).

When Bear in Heaven went on, something clicked. The sound is thick and full. You know, let's quote Pitchfork as they wrote about Bear in Heaven when they presented the band "Best New Music" award for their album Beast Rest Forth Mouth: Mostly made up of textural, spacious three- to four-minute pop anthems with towering choruses, BRFM is a welcome reminder that an album doesn't have to be bombastic to feel huge and important. Take out the earbuds and let it fill a space: This is music that's bigger than your iPod—music you'll want to feel all around you. Though not quite coming out of nowhere, BRFM seems like a surprise gift—a striking consolidation of the spiky psych-prog tendencies of their debut into a pop framework. -Pitchfork

Hey, Jon Philpot of Bear in Heaven is a Fecal Face fan (bottom right photo)... See them as they are touring the USA and Europe right now. You won't be disappointed -->Check the dates.

Fresh off their tour of the Southwestern United States (and a bit bloodshot in the eyes), Mister Loveless' newest release, the Three Words EP, hit shelves just a fortnight ago.

Having so effectively channeled an aesthetic which fits comfortably between Echo and the Bunnymen and Joy Division, and despite the relative youth of its members, Mister Loveless resonates strongly with the generation who came up during the 70's and 80's. ~read on

 
LA to SF, DANCEiSM to Electric Masquerade
Written by Roisin Isner   
Friday, 02 July 2010 09:19
I headed down to LA to check out the DANCEiSM monthly Dance Party at the Echoplex, and within a few minutes discovered something well beyond my expectations. While Electronica music events are usually synonymous with Raves, and despite the party's inception in the warehouses of LA, a Rave it was not. This party was patently devoid of sixteen-year-olds with plastic bracelets coating their limbs, and saucer-like pupils. In fact, this event was surprisingly free of drug use of any kind. While far from being a sober crowd, dancing did take priority as the activity of the evening.

Michelle Fleck is a painter living in San Francisco. Her work focuses on the relationship between man and the landscape, and the marks we leave on it. Influenced by everyday life in the city, her paintings serve as snapshots of an ongoing intersection of the natural and man-made world. She strives to make work that has a sense of relevancy in a culture driven by a need for change and newness.

London based illustrator FRENCH recently held a show of new works at the Melbourne based Mild Manners


Henry Gunderson at Ever Gold, SF

Ever Gold opened a new solo show by NYC based Henry Gunderson a couple Saturday nights ago and it was literally packed. So packed I couldn't actually see most of the art - but a big crowd doesn't seem like a problem. I got a good laugh at what I would call the 'cock climbing wall' as it was one of the few pieces I could see over the crowd. I haven't gotten a chance to go back and check it all out again, but I'm definitely going to as the paintings that I could get a peek at were really high quality and intruiguing. You should do the same.


Mario Wagner @Hashimoto

Mario Wagner (Berkeley) opened his new solo show A Glow that Transfers Creativity last Saturday night at Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco.


Serge Gay Jr. @Spoke Art

The paintings in the show are each influenced by a musician, ranging from Freddy Mercury, to Madonna, to A Tribe Called Quest and they are so stylistically consistent with each musician's persona that they read as a cohesive body of work with incredible variation. If you told me they were each painted by a different person, I would not hesitate to believe you and it's really great to see a solo show with so much variety. The show is fun, poppy, very well done, and absolutely worth a look and maybe even a listen.


NYCHOS Mural on Ashbury and Haight

NYCHOS completed this great new mural on the corner of Haight and Ashbury in San Francisco on Tuesday. Looks Amazing.


Sun Milk in Vienna

With rising rent in SF and knowing mostly other young artists without capitol, I desired a way to live rent free, have a space to do my craft, and get to see more of the world. Inspired by the many historical artists who have longed similar longings I discovered the beauty of artist residencies. Lilo runs Adhoc Collective in Vienna which not only has a fully equipped artists creative studio, but an indoor halfpipe, and private artist quarters. It was like a modern day castle or skate cathedral. It exists in almost a utopic state, totally free to those that apply and come with a real passion for both art and skateboarding


"How To Lose Yourself Completely" by Bryan Schnelle

I just wanted to share with you a piece I recently finished which took me 4 years to complete. Titled "How To Lose Yourself Completely (The September Issue)", it consists of a copy of the September 2007 issue of Vogue magazine (the issue they made the documentary about) with all faces masked with a sharpie, and everything else entirely whited out. 840 pages of fun. -Bryan Schnelle

The Marsh Barge - Traveling the Mississippi River from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico

For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to quit my job, move out of my house, leave everything and travel again. So on August 21, 2013 I pushed a canoe packed full of gear into the headwaters of the Mississippi River in Lake Itasca, Minnesota, along with four of my best friends. Exactly 100 days later, I arrived at a marina near the Gulf of Mexico in a sailboat.
