Trouble In The Wind

There's something about the lackadaisical singing of Robbie Gira mixed with the tight instrumentation of Trouble In The Wind that had me hooked from first listen. With references to Johnny Cash and the Highway Men, Trouble In The Wind pay homage to the genre of outlaw country. We spent an evening downtown with this young four-piece, busking on street corners and hopping trolley cars. Read More...

KMRC Presents : Family Wagon

Over the last couple years, Keith Milgaten has either recorded, mixed, or remixed about half the bands in our fair city.

Introducing Pretty Too Bad

With only a handful of live shows under their belt, Pretty Too Bad is already poised to start turning heads in San Diego. Beginning with a few rough tracks written on an Ocean Beach piano, Clayton Edward has taken a slow, calculated approach to launching this project. We recently met up with the four piece at Black Box Studios to snag some footage and to find out more about Pretty Too Bad. Read More...
