Girl In A Coma To Release 'Trio B.C.' June 2

April 18th, 2009 5:00pm EDT
Girl In A Coma
Girl in a Coma frontwoman Nina Diaz sings, "Oh, I feel so alive," on "Baby Boy," a track from the trio's new album 'Trio B.C.' (out 6/2 on Blackheart Records). A couple of minutes with this pummeling 13-song epic, and you'll know that she isn't fooling around.

Nina spills her guts on 'Trio B.C.'; the intensity of her voice is matched only by her ferocious guitar playing. The rhythm section doesn't hold back, either. Nina's sister, Phanie, is on drums, and Phanie's childhood friend, Jenn Alva, plays bass.

Nina may wear her heart on her sleeve, but the band's influences are sub...

Cake To Release 'B-Sides And Rarities' This Spring; Live Disc Due In Fall

April 20th, 2007 8:00pm EDT
Cake
Cake formed in Sacramento, California in 1991. The band quickly became a hot item in the downtown club and cafe scene, then went on to gain a steady following in San Francisco's Bay Area. Lead singer John McCrea's unwitting amalgam of Jonathan Richman, David Byrne, and Woody Guthrie, backed by Cake's shambling countrified funk, took Northern California by storm. To date, Cake has toured extensively throughout the world including North and South America, Europe, Australia, and Japan.

After releasing their first album, Motorcade of Generosity independently, the band signed with Capricorn...
