Geographer Re-Release Gets a Wallpaper and Limousines Makeover

Just when you thought you'd heard everything from Bay Area favorites, Geographer, The Limousines and Wallpaper go and remix two of their biggest hits.

The "Kites (The Limousines Remix)," and "Paris (Wallpaper Remix)" are available on iTunes and through their label. Sample the new club bangers by streaming them below, or go celebrate with Geographer at their in-store Amoeba Berkeley performance tonight.

Girls: SF Locals Gaining Speed

Girls, a local SF lo-fi garage group consisting of a rotating repertoire of 14 or more artists, have been dominating the underground hazy grunge scene for a while with their laid-back style and California demeanor. Call it the new home-grown Beach Boys era, if you will.

Elvis Costello Playing for Free at Amoeba

On the heels of his roots-inspired June 2nd release "Secret, Profane & Sugarcane," the legendary Elvis Costello, joined by singer/songwriter Jim Lauderdale, will play a free show in San Francisco next week Monday (6/22) at, of all places, Amoeba (12pm). Costello will stick around for an album signing after the in-store performance—free silk-screened posters for anyone who buys the new album!—before heading south to play an 8pm show at Amoeba in Hollywood.

Aquarius and Amoeba Records Make Best Record Store List

How about a little hometown pride for Amoeba and Aquarius Records, two SF institutions that topped SPIN's 15 Best Indie Record Stores in the country list (compiled in honor of Record Store Day last Saturday)?  Amoeba took the #1 spot on the list, Aquarius, the #7.

On Aquarius:  "It's one of those record stores where you can go in and say, ‘Got anything that sounds like this?' and they'll go ‘Yeah!' and pull something out of the back."
