Description: “As a fixture of the San Francisco music scene since 2001, Mud has developed a strong loyal following of fans addicted to the band’s heavy guitar riffs, infectious melodies and collection of high energy pop songs, that draw comparisons to successful crossover bands like Blondie, Green Day, and Jimmy Eat World.
Signing with San Francisco indie label Talking House Records in Fall of 2006, Mud spent most of 2007 developing material and crafting the perfect sound for the first full length album Yearbook, which is scheduled to be released on April 15th. The ability to spend time recording at the Talking House studios has made their upcoming release something to truly look forward to. Fans old and new will be surprised and pleased with Mud’s new sound — they will definitely have something to sing about.”
Album: A Foggy Holiday
Description: “Come a-caroling with the high energy and raw talent of a diverse music scene spawned in the fog. Between two iconic bridges, on steep hills, in warehouses and a couple dozen small clubs, in the capital city of eclectic; San Francisco s favorite bands come together to raise a cup of cheer, and raise funds to help MusiCares bring cheer to musicians in need. Talking House Records, who recently released Live From SFxSXSW , is at it again promoting the incredible artists of the San Francisco Bay; only this time, their Bay Area spirit is accompanied by holiday cheer. A Foggy Holiday- Carols from the SF Scene, Vol. 1 , is a compilation featuring tracks from: Scissors For Lefty, Cold Hot Crash, Elephone, Mud, Push to Talk, Built For The Sea, Kerry Gulbranson, The Trophy Fire, The Hundred Days, Panda, Austin Willacy, Bray, Emperor Norton, Poor Bailey, and Persephone s Bees. These holiday songs, include stunning indie-rock versions of classics like A Holly Jolly Christmas , Winter Wonderland , It Came Upon The Midnight Clear , and Baby It’s Cold Outside , performed by some of San Francisco s current musical gems and artists on the rise. Push to Talk and Elephone invited close friends and fellow San Francisco musicians over to the Talking House studios to sing along on two tracks, Happy Xmas (War Is Over) and Auld Lang Syne . Special guests included members of The Matches, Audrye Sessions, Elephone, Panda, The Hundred Days, Built For The Sea, Cold Hot Crash, Tinkture, Mud, Bray and Poor Bailey. 10% of the profits from the record will benefit the GRAMMY S MusiCares program, which provides a safety net of critical assistance for music professionals in times of need. MusiCares services and resources cover a wide range of financial, medical and personal emergencies.”
