Harry Greer (HG) is an artist/musician and the founder of the Davis rebel art and music collective known as BRAINMELTER.
BRAINMELTER (at brainmelter.net) is a group of Davis natives dedicated to making Davis/Yolo a haven for the arts and to changing the world through hip art and sick music. Each of the Brainmelters have a completely different style and genre, which means that there’s definitely something for everyone. Hip hop, pop punk, folk rock, cringecore, hardcore, vaporwave, it’s all of it. The whole collective adds up to some fun and colorful local counter culture.
Listen in now to the interview with Jesse Sizemore and Andy Dibben of The Outcome along with their recording producer Michael Phillip Taylor.
The Outcome’s unique brand of genre-bending music combines grooving backbeats, melodic bass lines, textural atmospherics, and searing guitar leads to produce the challenging yet palatable songs that define the band’s sound. This Sacramento quartet has made their mark by striking a balance between complexity and listenability. While exerting meticulous focus of their material, Jesse, Andy, Mike, and Quinn refuse to settle or compromise their standards for songwriting. Seeing their music as a catalyst for connection, The Outcome look for ways to bring imaginative new experiences to listeners that manifest emotions and provoke intrigue.
A great hour of banter and Americana with Didar Singh Khasla and his group "Karma Loading". Pure joy in this music.

“Husband and wife singer/songwriter duo Joshua and Amy Anne Kräge had been playing music in and around Sacramento for ten years before ever even meeting, let alone playing music together. Filling in for members of the same cover band for a private event in October 2013, their first meeting was their first practice together for their first gig together; their first date was just a few days later, and they've been playing together ever since.
Both members of too many bands to ever be able to list over the years, Amy and Joshua found common ground in versatility. Amy has sung and Josh has played everything from opera to Steely Dan to '90s grunge to folk pop to roadhouse blues to '50s doo-wop to Chaka Khan-approved funk and more. Currently also working together in chameleonic Sacramento pop/funk outfit The Pressure Lounge, they decided to make Love + Honey about the lighter side of the art of music, focusing on positive message and powerful melody in both their original songs and cover material choices.
Equipped with ears for harmonies and hearts for lifting the spirits of whoever's listening, Love + Honey strives to be the brightest spot on the speakers of the collective world.”

So listen now to club president Zahra Baxi and Alex as they share about animation and play some of their favorite music.
