HCFM: Beatbeat Whisper

April 10, 2009


Since moving back to the Bay Area, I’ve become very enthusiastic about small, local bands. They’re the ones who need the most support, and their shows are usually at small venues for cheap prices. It’s a complete win-win situation!

A while back I fell in love with Oakland indie-folk act Beatbeat Whisper, comprised of sibling talent Ayla and Davyd Nereo. Their voices are each so unique by themselves, but they manage to perfectly complement one another without one ever overpowering the other. If only all sibling relationships could be so harmonious!

I couldn’t figure out how to embed this darn quicktime video, so I’ll just direct you to this neat little site I found called Pacific Noise– featuring podcasts and videos of local acts performing live. And, as demonstrated by last week’s Vetiver video, if a band sounds great on a low quality video then they obviously sound that much better in person. I personally can’t wait to see these two this coming Thursday at the Starry Plough. And, as mentioned, these thrills are cheap- cover is a whopping $8- and the venue is an awesome little brick walled bar covered in white christmas lights and vintage concert posters.

Channeling the folky vibes of the Neil Youngs and Joni Mitchells of days gone past, this will be a real Berkeley experience, to be sure. Check out their video, feel the love, and have a great weekend!
