Julia Holter (LA)
http://www.myspace.com/juliaholter
Julia makes fey, playful psych-folk that is reminiscent of the classic sixties records by The Fool and Michele O'Malley.
Arcane poetry and mystical saints adorn her music as well as her faux-naif take on medieval figurative art. Her crystalline voice drifts across a sonic landscape populated with dizzy organs and miniature baroque arrangements.

Nick Stone / Raccoons (SF)
http://www.myspace.com/sanfranciscoraccoons
http://www.myspace.com/nstone
Raccoons have brought their love of C86 and the virtues of Britpop into the 21st century, becoming one of San Francisco's most exciting pop bands in the process. Who else makes rock 'n' roll you can dream to these days?

Jason Grier / Super Creep (LA)
http://www.myspace.com/creepland
Fantasy collides with reality and somewhere in the manic wreckage Super Creep is born. All the warped and displaced phantasms that populate an overactive urban mind take turns working the light show in Grier's schizoid-pop playground.

Geneva Jacuzzi (LA)
http://www.myspace.com/zombieshark
If Giorgio Moroder had an illegitimate daughter who was hiding out in a hot tub in LA, she'd probably sound a lot like Geneva Jacuzzi. Her swirling, bubbling layers of synths and hypnotic beats propel her champagne-soaked electronic pop back to the glory days of Italo disco via a four-track tape recorder.

Girls - Chris Owens and J.R. (SF)
http://www.myspace.com/girlssanfran

Girls (who are actually two boys) specialize in cynical, good-time indie pop that swirls around on a waterbed of analog synths, guitar fuzz, and minimal percussion. No matter how high the music takes you into your mental stratosphere, the subtle pop hooks will always bring you back down to earth.
