Caitlin Cobb-Vialet’s ‘Boots and Menthols’ is a curious and contemplative journey
The Bay Bridged
by Ben Einstein
2y ago
CCaitlin Cobb-Vialet‘s “Boots and Menthols'”is the latest in a string of serpentine stream-of-consciousness singles from her upcoming EP, out in October on War Chant Records. Like her previous singles, the excellent “Not A Child” and “I Confuse Us,” this one is loaded with ennui and self-aware musings and features subtle yet complimentary production by Jim Greer. Though these songs all incorporate different sonic palates, the through-line is Cobb-Vialet’s electric piano playing and matter-of-fact vocal delivery. The singles also share a rhapsodic quality; throwing a traditional verse/chorus ..read more

Hudson Bell explores new dimensions with ‘Psychic Breaks’
The Bay Bridged
by SarahJayn Kemp
2y ago
(photo: Patric Carver) The first time I saw Hudson Bell was years ago at the Starry Plough. I remember being captivated by the hooky charm of his songs — particularly “In a Ball.” I was humming it to myself for days afterward. If the fecund ground of pop music is fertilized by earworms, Bell is a masterful composter. However, the ease by which the listener can be comfortable with Bell’s songs should not be mistaken for a lack of complexity. His compositions bridge this great divide between being completely familiar without having the slightest hint of predictability. That night, even though I ..read more

Review + Photos: Sound Summit serves up summer jams

Sound Summit (photo: William Wayland) We showed our double vaccination cards and climbed aboard the shuttles that would wind their way from Mill Valley above the morning fog to the amphitheater overlooking the bay. The Cushing Memorial Amphitheater was built using rough-hewn boulders by the Civilian Conservation Corp in 1933. It doesn’t have the polish of a venue like the Shoreline Amphitheater, but that’s the beauty of it.  Steps are uneven and trees can block your view. It’s rustic. Here, the backdrop is Tiburon, Angel Island, Alcatraz, and San Francisco. I don’t know if ..read more

If you need something to shake off th ..read more

To our readers, After an incredible 15 years, The Bay Bridged will be ceasing operations on October 1, 2021. The Bay Bridged began in San Francisco in 2006 with a small podcast premised on a big idea: that even in an age of increasing access to digital music from around the globe, local music scenes mattered. We eventually blossomed into a multifaceted local music nonprofit, creating a blog that reached 60,000 readers every month and producing festivals and concerts like The Bay Brewed, Rock Make Street Festival, and, of course, Phono Del Sol — all of which championed discovery and ..read more
