After more than seven years of playing music together, the members of Loquat, San Francisco's answer to Swedish pop music, have plenty of memories to work from. Between the weddings and funerals, Loquat have committed to gorgeous, sincere songs filled with nostalgia and emotion. The introspective lyrics of Kylee Swenson are matched by her haunting vocals floating over the minimal moods of her band mates. Loquat has made a name for itself throughout the Bay Area and beyond for its addictive brand of guitar pop. With a few EPs and a couple LPs under its collective belt, Loquat explores life's mysteries with deft grace and eloquent composure. The band's latest full-length album, Secrets of the Sea, finds the group in transition from Smith's-esque melancholy to a more comfortable, yet no less sublime, space and time. Meanwhile, remixes by Junior Sanchez ("Harder Hit") and Zion-I's AmpLive ("Sit Sideways") take things straight to the party. Alternately Cardigans, Stereolab and hints of ABBA and Cat Power, Swenson and company relieve the stress of overproduced, overhyped acts with a steady hand and endearing voice.

The Downer Party

The Downer Party
"If I was walking across the mountains near Lake Tahoe, and say I was hungry, there would be no other band I'd rather eat than The Downer Party. They're young and have the feel good party indie rock vibe. Lead singer Sierra also did vox for Elephone and she's well on her way to holding the torch as San Francisco's premiere female rocker to watch catapult to international celebrity." -SF Chronicle
