Rosie Flores Live @ The Riptide (PHOTOS)

A 'lil honky-tonk in the fog last night in San Francisco. Bloodshot Records artist, Rosie Flores, by way of Austin, TX, made a stop at the Riptide supporting her new album: Working Girl's Guitar. That was the most charming and rocking show in a long time. Miss Flores can seriously rip into the blues, surf, rockabilly, and can play guitar way better than you and look better too, in her dress and cowboy boots.

This was a super fun evening, so, please check out her new album over at Bloodshot Records, and catch her on tour if you can:

Band: "VOW", Song "Planks"

LA duo Vow are premiering a new song titled "Planks" today on Entertainment Weekly.

The track appears on the duo's upcoming EP, Make Me Yours out August 12th on The Native Sound.

Make Me Yours is now available for pre-order as both a digital download, and limited edition 12” vinyl record.

Consisting of vocalist Julia Blake, and instrumentalist Andrew Thomas, Vow have been known to dance along the genre lines of synth-pop, dream-pop, dark wave and post punk. Driven by drum machines and rich bass lines, Julia's soulful, and melodic alto vocals ooze on top of the analog pulsing synths and dreamy pads.

The EP finds the band transitioning from the darker textures of their debut, to more Cocteau Twins-inspired dynamics, implementing chorus-drenched guitars/bass, and palpable pop-informed vocal melodies. As with their debut, the EP again features Touché Amoré guitarist, and one-half of Andrew's ambient guitar duo, Wife, Nick Steinhardt on guitar. Steinhardt, who interestingly enough introduced Andrew and Julia to each other, also took charge of all visual aspects relating to the band's EP.
