A Phono del Sol Playlist

Couldn’t make the Bay Bridge + Tiny Telephone production Phono del Sol today? Not to worry, Nostos Algos has you covered. Here are some festival favorites for you to view in the pantsless privacy of your apartment, so crack that craft brew, microvave those Chinese leftovers and let this visual playlist be your Saturday highlight.

Wye Oak, an everlasting gobstopper-esque addicition.

Much love for the throwback sound of San Francisco State University alum, Nick Waterhouse.

The Tambo Rays, purveyors of one of the best damn shows I’ve seen all year.

Always a woman of her own means, the ever-ready Thao & The Get Down Stay Down.

Tony Molina. Tony (freaking) Molina.


Sarah Jaffe, “Clementine”

Sarah Jaffe’s 2010 album Suburban Nature is the perfect combination of female musicianship. One part Cat Power, one part Wye Oak with a bit of Eleanor Murray channeling Tegan and Sara. This album, which I unearthed late last week, is best utilized to free yourself of foes; to close your bedroom door, crank the volume and exist solely in a cloud of aural Jaffe. In other words, you should lose yourself in Suburban Nature.

My particular favorite is “Pretender”. This album goes in the purchased bucket.
