The Birth Defects
The Birth Defects
The Birth Defects' live show unleashes an all out assault on pop sensibility and widely accessible music with their bastard child of punk, thrash, noise and every genre of heavy music that services the outcasts and the misunderstood of society. Ghost Ramp signed and Ty Segall produced, The Birth Defects sophomore effort is nothing short of a validation for the misfits of planet earth.

Lead singer and guitarist, Jason Finazzo teaches a crash course on transforming suffering into a good time. He's the poster child for emotional paralysis and making good on the promise to get out of the house for a little bit today. Brothers in a battery of unrelenting sonic and rhythmic assault are bassist Philip Nielsen, drummer Anthony Drinkwater & newest edition, guitarist Tim Dawson. Their riffs are rough and raw, make no requisite age for rage, yet remain oddly unpretentious about how hardcore they are. Everyone is welcome to the other side of the tracks where The Birth Defects live- to laugh at you and cry at their own misfortune.
Pins of Light
Pins of Light
Pins of Light new full length LP “Home”, on Sound and Pressure Records, will be available Jan. 22nd worldwide.

Woven into the San Francisco Bay Area music scene for many years, Pins’ members Shane Baker, Jake Palladino, Ravi Durbeej, and Phil Becker have been, and still remain members of Alaric, Tricplops!, Dead and Gone, and Hightow-
er. Their sophomore effort, recorded right here in San Francisco at El Studio by Donny Newenhouse with additional tracking and mixing done by drummer Becker, showcases the bands unique style and cohesion. Their music can be described as a freight train on a starry midnight voyage; and their diverse influences can be heard on all eight tracks.

Ranging from blistering old-fashioned punk rock, psychedelic acid rock, to straight ahead hard rock - all reinforced with pummeling drums and heavy guitars, this quartet refuses to be pinned down. They’ve shared the stage with acts as diverse as High on Fire to The Sonics along with The Melvins, Unsane, Jello Biafra, Weed Eater, Toys That Kill, Big Business, Obits, and Black Cobra to name a few. Home is the band’s follow up LP to 2012’s II, which was released on Alternative Tentacles Records. They have also released singles on Scion Records and Valley King Records, with an upcoming Valley King split single with Big Business to be released Summer 2016.
