Fresno's roots-rock kings are Motel Drive. They have a new song out "My Sweet Annie", it's as great as all their other stellar work. They have been kind enough to allow Fresnan readers to freely download the new stuff. Have at it:
This new one from Fresno's Fashawn has exploded on the internets today (led by a post from Fresno Beehive). Fash integrated all kinds of Fresno in this new one called "One More Try". He uses Fresno (cough) "legend" Timmy T's One My Try and makes it all his own - with the help of Omar Aura.
Check out Threat Level Rising. A new - but very old-school - punk band in Fresno. They're working on their debut album that will be out soon and have leaked some songs off of it. One of them being "Violence":
Just in under the "New Music Tuesday" wire with this one from local musician JJ Brown playing live on KFSR with his song "Casting Lines". You can hear this plus an interview with JJ on Saturday Morning at 7am on 90.7 KFSR during the Show Business Spotlight.
In anticipation of the release of Sahab's new EP, he has graciously allowed us all to download a newly remixed track off of it called "Dastaneh Layli O Majnun". It's nice stuff and you can hear him do it live this Saturday at Fresno Brewing Company.
We know B. RawCity has been one of Fresno's rising music artists for a bit now. So it's about time we posted a track from him for New Music Tuesday. This one is called "Think Like Me" and is a colab with Mayfair District (such a cool Fresno name).
We can't stop liking these Sounds & Sciences guys. We know it's not a widely recognized genre of music with the above 20 crowd but we think Sounds is as legit locally as Strange Vine, 40 Watt Hype, Rademacher, Fierce Creatures and so on... well, at least they will be someday.
The Fresnan is a blog drunk on Fresno's sweet sweet booze.
We like posting about local music and random Fresno culture junk. We like Downtown, tri-tip, South of Shaw battles, tamales and remembering when there was a fig orchard at Herndon & Palm. We like to occasionally go to River Park but tell people we never go there.
