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.

On October 23 and 24, Indie pop trio MUNA performed at the Fillmore as part of their 2022 North American tour. Consisting of singer Katie Gavin, guitarist Josette Maskin, and instrumentalist Naomi McPherson, MUNA has gained widespread attention for their energetic tracks and high quality production, a standard of quality which carried over in their live performances.

A note from the interviewer, John The Reptilian: As a teenager in the 1980s Jason Becker was one of the most promising up & coming players & one of the most talented guitarists of all time. In 1988 he recorded his groundbreaking solo album Perpetual Burn. Prior to that he had recorded albums with Marty Friedman under the name Cacophony. He landed the role of lead guitar in the David Lee Roth band & recorded the album A Little Ain't Enough.
