Mattson 2 — identical twins in identical shorts.

Paradise, the new album from identical twin psych-jazz duo Mattson 2, drops June 7, with three mildly surfy singles so far preceding the release; “Essence,” “Naima’s Dream,” and “Wavelength.” The video for “Essence” is a VHS-style retro promo with friends filmed while thumbing through CDs and VHS tapes at Circuit City. Videos were also produced for “Naima’s Dream,” and “Wavelength,” with the latter debuting on the Fader site last week.

Past Event

Mattson 2

  • Thursday, June 20, 2019, 8 p.m.
  • Belly Up Tavern, 143 S. Cedros Avenue, Solana Beach
  • 21+

It’s their second release on Chaz Bear’s Company Records, their first without Bear as a band member, and contains the first Mattson 2 songs to sport their own vocals. A support tour will feature dates in Texas, Louisiana, and California (including June 20 at the Belly Up), as well as Ohio’s Nelsonville Music Festival, the San Francisco Jazz Festival, and the Telluride Jazz Festival in Colorado.

Chon will follow up recent singles “Petal” and “Peace” with a self-titled full-length, due June 7 via Sumerian Records and supported with planned festival appearances at Shaky Knees and Electric Forest, along with a U.S. tour backed by DOMi and JD Beck.

“We’re releasing a seven-inch vinyl with two new recordings,” says Ben Ambrosini of Taken By Canadians. “Songs will include a new track called ‘Magdalene’ and a new version of an old song called ‘Black Heart.’ The first was recorded last September in San Francisco at a studio called Bauer Mansion [Oh Sees, Ty Segall] with Eric Bauer as engineer. ‘Black Heart’ was recorded at Lost Ark Studio in Pacific Beach, and both songs were mixed by Mike Butler. The cover art for ‘Magdalene’ was shot on the roof of Northern Pine Brewing in Oceanside, where I work as a bartender and sales rep.”

Past Event

Taken by Canadians and Shane Hall

  • Saturday, June 8, 2019, 8 p.m.
  • Casbah, 2501 Kettner Boulevard, San Diego
  • 21+ / $10 - $12

They’ll debut the release June 8 at the Casbah for a bill that includes Shane Hall, Creature and the Woods, and Low Volts. “Our set will feature lots of guest appearances; Shane Hall, Tim Lowman [Low Volts], Dan Cervantes [Mrs. Henry]. We also have a music video for ‘Magdalene’ being released the week of the show shot by Blake Dean [Schizophonics, Mrs. Henry].”

Past Event

Allweather

  • Friday, June 14, 2019, 8 p.m.
  • Tower Bar, 4757 University Avenue, San Diego
  • 21+

Allweather will premiere their debut full-length (released via Paper Street Cuts) on June 14 at the Tower Bar. “The album is titled Through the Floor because the lyrical content addresses subjects from social anxiety to whether there is a purpose to human existence at all,” says the band via email. “Instead of my emotion being through the roof, it seems it’s through the floor.”

Past Event

Cici's Last Stand

Bordertown singer Cici (Porter) Artemisia is an artist, musician, child abuse prevention advocate, and she'll soon be a former San Diegan. The June 23 release party at San Dieguito Heritage Ranch for her new album The Lucky One serves as a going away party, a video shoot for the title track ("Come get your 15 seconds of fame in a solo shot, then stick around for the flash mob"), and a pop-up art sale of the singer's brightly-colored, nature-inspired paintings. There will be food trucks, a no-host bar, public mural painting, and - in keeping with the Lucky One theme - games of chance such as horseshoes, poker, and Wheel of Fortune.

Jazz-blues-new age guitarist Shambhu just dropped “Lilac Skies,” the title single of his upcoming fourth full-length, which features guest players such as pianist Frank Martin (Elton John, Stevie Wonder), drummer/percussionist Celso Alberti (Flora Purim, Stevie Winwood), and bassist Kai Eckhardt (John McLaughlin, Billy Cobham).
