If this Bay Area winter has taught us anything, it's that when it rains, it pours. Luckily, on December 8th, Berkeley-based indie artist Chammeili released the perfect soundtrack for an overcast East Bay Sunday. Icy Blue distills the hushed, cool quality of singer Kaamya Sharma’s voice with reserved acoustics and unsettling lyrics. Released on El-Cerrito based label Lavasocks, Chammeili’s debut takes a quieter, more haunting approach to youth than any of the band’s previous songs.

Tune in on Monday, December 5th @ 1:30PM to hear Rare Earth speak with John Dwyer of Osees ahead of the band's show at The UC Theatre in Berkeley on December 9th.
Psych-punk psychic warrior, ear worm-farmer, and possessor of many stamped passport pages... John Dwyer does not let up. His group Osees (aka Thee Oh Sees, OCS, The Oh Sees, etc) have transmogrified to fit many a moment - from hushed druggy folk to groovy demonic pop chants to science fictional krautrock expanse and beyond - to suit his omnivorous whims.
