The Dying Californian played a show at the Hotel Utah, SF with Ladyhawk and JW shot this horrible vid on his new camera. Talk about lo-fi!

Disclaimer: This was shot on a Canon Digital Elph...so the quality of the sound doesn't do the band justice. Since this isn't some major label we'll assume you can hear through the poor mic and enjoy the song.

New Citizens Here And Abroad CD - now available

Citizens Here And Abroad

Turn Records is proud to welcome San Francisco's Citizens Here And Abroad to the label! Their new album, arrives two years after their successful debut [Ghosts Of Tables And Chairs (Omnibus)] and was almost entirely written while touring in support of that record.

Citizens' new album, 'Waving, Not Drowning,' is about decisions, deliberations, and taking chances. The dramatic peaks and valleys of each song build into a frenzy and then peel away like onion skin, revealing things that are usually whispered, if they are spoken at all. Read more about Citizens Here And Abroad.

Available: Online, In stores and through iTunes and all digital download spots...NOW!

Thee More Shallows - Monkey vs Shark

It took three year between the recordings of Thee More Shallows' first record and last year's breakout record More Deep Cuts but now in a scant 6 months (more or less) Thee More Shallows return with new epic tales of sonic greatness. 7 Tracks are included on Monkey vs. Shark, the epilogue to More Deep Cuts. Included are the title track, the band's famous cover of I Can't Get Next To You as well as Freshman Remix, orchestrated by Odd Nosdam and Why? (Anticon) and never before heard material including the epic title track Monkey vs Shark and the off beat (not quirky) Dutch Slaver.

"The band's spooky rendition of Al Green's "I Can't Get Next To You" is startling. Clear and coherent lyrics over the band's occult music leave the listener numb with gummy flesh." - Tiny Mix Tapes

"Enigmatic and gorgeous" - Filter Magazine, 89%

"Thee More Shallows is a R_diohead for when no one's looking, a stealth assault on the rotting pillars of irony, careerism, and juvenile marginalia that plague our collective indie underground. Thee More Shallows is the quiet kid in the corner who knows more than everyone, including enough to not let anyone in on the secret. Even if no one's looking, no one really does it any better right now. Yes, this is recommended." - SCTAS

"Thee More Shallows' new 7-track disc circles threateningly around shoegaze and post-rock influences, but never attacks either, using fresh atmospherics to force you into their growing mania. Too many EPs are slapdash collections of random songs, Monkey Vs. Shark is a mini album." - Stylus Magazine

"Thee More Shallows is an obsessed entity, obsessed with the dark, with people, and with the world, as the voice of reason that sits inside a conscious mind watches it all interact." - UpBeet Music

Calling All Monsters

Matthew Troy, for years, co-fronted and wrote songs for beloved Bay Area band, Track Star. Over the past two years he's been writing...writing loud, nostalgic, powerful rock songs...the kind that reminds you of when you first fell in love with underground rock, the kind that makes you wanna share a pizza with Jason Lowenstein while chilling in your Empire Strikes Back T-shirt. If you think it's time indie rock once again rocked out, then it's time for you to check out Calling All Monsters. Check out their brand new video for WE ARE: SPECIAL FORCES below!

"Ex-Track Star frontman Matthew Troy leads off his new band's debut with a telling declaration: "What we say is what we say/What we need is what we need!" What follows is part Wedding Present, part Archers of Loaf -- and it doesn't waste a chord. Troy's husky growl might be a call to action but it's Calling All Monsters' no-nonsense riffs that summon Godzilla from the water." - Magnet Magazine, April/May 2006

"The Traps That Work Best is one hell of a record." - Copper Press

The Traps That Work Best: iTunes, Online, In Stores

more reviews: Punknews, SCTAS

- CAM featured on NPR's Open Mic!

Don't mess with Calling All Monsters...seriously.


Calling All Monsters new video for the single We Are: Special Forces is finally here and it's fantastic. So spend 2:00, rock out, and see the fellas as they plot to overthrow the evil empire of poser bands. Such fun!
