Sleeping People (2) (3) is an instrumental San Diego band reminiscent of Don Caballero, Rumah Sakit, King Crimson, and various other mathy things. A loud, staccato, angular, and brain tingling good time.
The Jade Shader (2) (3) rises from the ashes of No Knife and Boilermaker. I haven't heard much, but word is they're really good.
"The Drift (2) (3) are an instrumental four-piece from San Francisco who are comprised of trumpet, electronics, guitar, keyboards, upright bass and drums. The music combines elements of rare groove, dub, out jazz, and more esoteric leanings that conjure a unique musical space free of traditional confines, simultaneously frenetic and sublime." They sound unbelievably fucking cool -- like Do Make Say Think with a little more cool jazz.
