Mermen
Mermen
The Mermen's style of music has been called a lot of things, surf, rock, psychedelic, ambient, psychobilly, thrash, punk, new-age...and really, it may be all of those things. Their name came from Jimi Hendrix's song "1983, A Merman I Should Turn to Be" which captures both their love of the ocean and an appreciation of great rock and roll.

The trio of Jim Thomas, Allen Whitman, and Martyn Jones first formed in 1989 and recently reunited late in 2006. They are multi-dimensional people, each with his own unique talent, but all with a love for the music.
Golden Void
Golden Void
Golden Void is the new face of Bay Area psychedelic music. It's a rich tradition and like many of the tradition’s greats, Golden Void’s songs are firmly rooted in melody and not afraid of exploration. The band’s hooks get stuck in your head and their riffs transport you to the astral plane. Golden Void’s undeniable twist, setting them apart from their city’s lineage, is the influence of classic bands like Sabbath and Pentagram. The quartet, Isaiah Mitchell (Earthless) on guitar and vocals, Camilla Saufley-Mitchell on keyboards and vocals, Aaron Morgan on bass and Justin Pinkerton on Drums, achieves a perfect balance of muscular riffs, soaring melodies, and hazy atmosphere on Berkana, their sophomore album. Recorded with Tim Green (The Fucking Champs), Berkana shows Golden Void expanding the scope of their sound without abandoning the heady groove they carved on their acclaimed self-titled debut.
