Introducing The Peacers! Since the release of a self-titled album in 2015, all new members (Shayde Sartin, Mike Shoun and Bo Moore) have reformed around Mike Donovan, and they've been gigging in and around SF consistently. In the spirit of (at least partial) reboot, the dudes have even added the aforementioned "The" to their name!

Introducing The Crimsmen (again, das reboot) brims like a bottomless sack of great tunes flecked with hazy shade and splashing watery sunshine on the back of your mind as the hits keep on comin'! Take in the brand new video for "Black Fences" as example: a buttery smooth tune cuffed HARD with ragged guit-riffs, left-turns in tempo and cascades of loose drums wrangling it along, with Mike D's signature abstract lyrics as libretto. Inspirational couplet for these times: "Faux leader new cheater/chant down to you "no king no king". Yup! Pairing these sounds and signals with visuals from an impromptu rooftop jam sesh is ace and actual as well; too bad there isn't any video footage of the scads of adoring fans in the street below! It was a one camera shoot, yo...
