Listen to my shapes. A tactile invitation to an elevated pop consciousness offered by this brainchild of singer/guitarist Greg Loiacono, best known for his frontline role in California Soul institution, The Mother Hips. Sensations move with the natural grace of Roy Orbison, and Buddy Holly & the Crickets infused with ‘70s power trio muscle They bounce hard like the Soft Boys/Robyn Hitchcock, My Morning Jacket and ‘60s British Invasion greats. In Loiacono’s words, it’s "a macho/sensitive music that explores modern day psychedelia and the feelings of body and heart.”

Bringing in a wealth of road won experience, Loiacono, abetted by bassist Reed Mathis (Tea Leaf Green, Marco Benevento) and drummer Dave Brogan (ALO), Sensations rescue pop music from the slagheap of today's charts, returning it to the cerebrally breezy tradition of the Kinks & Hollies. What's more, they build on that darkly tuneful legacy. Not merely nostalgic recreationists, Sensations breathe creativity & sonic verve into every crevice of this lean, punchy marvel.
Formed in the summer of 2004, Prairiedog has returned after a break in recording since 2006’s “To Set Your Calendars On Fire” with their new album “The Golden Hour”, the first release on lead singer Sarah Bethe Nelson's record label, Hazy Maiden.

Prairiedog is comprised of members who also play with Kelley Stoltz, Sonny Smith, Nightgown and other San Francisco bands. “The Golden Hour” was recorded with Kelley Stoltz in the fall of 2011 (at his Electric Duck Studios) in San Francisco.

The LP captures the sound of joy and connectedness that comes from old friends playing new songs together. “The Golden Hour” finds its own space in between Neil Young's “Harvest Moon” acoustic touched sways and the Staples Singers tremolo chant gospel.
