Hellogoodbye’s latest LP, ‘Everything is Debatable’, is out now on Old Friends Records and garnering critical acclaim: MTV Buzzworthy declares “…the electro-powered chorus squeezes wordless vocal hooks next to Forrest Kline’s lyrics and funky guitar chords, as disco drums keep the beat moving…” and Alternative Press hails the album as “…an expertly produced indie-pop record…” while the OC Register praises the albums “…delicate dance-pop melodies.”
The album marks the band’s first studio release since 2010′s ‘Would It Kill You?’ and follows their self-released digital live album ‘Did It Kill You?’. Recorded throughout 2012 and 2013 in Nashville, San Francisco, Long Beach and Los Angeles, the album was produced by Joe Chiccarelli (The Strokes, The White Stripes, My Morning Jacket) and Hellogoodbye frontman Forrest Kline with additional production by Carlos De La Garza (Paramore, M83).
Every once in a while there is a special Chico band with a far-reaching sound (think: Mother Hips, Number One Gun) that puts out a recording that not only makes them big fish locally, but also makes waves in greater musical waters outside of our little pond. And for the past couple weeks I’ve been telling everyone who’d listen about a great new recording that would seem to have the potential for such a splash.
Post-Heroic, the new self-recorded, self-released album by local rockers Surrogate, is jarringly good. The 10-song collection is a perfectly recorded mixture of strong, tuneful, mostly mid-tempo pop rock held together by the inviting tenor of front man Chris Keene. If one of the songs showed up on your playlist between Death Cab for Cutie and Radiohead, I doubt you’d even blink. To put it succinctly: It sounds like music that is popular now, so much so in fact that the first thing that comes to mind is, “Why aren’t these guys signed?” (more at http://www.newsreview.com/

WANDERERS & WOLVES –
Wanderers & Wolves are three friends who love making noise…rock ‘n’ roll noise to be exact.
The three friends first met while working at Best Buy about a year ago and the immediate chemistry as friends and bandmates spawned a slew of original works. Since then, the trio has been hard at work playing shows all over the North State, as well as putting the finishing touches on their first EP.Chico, California Surrogate w/ Hellogoodbye and Wanderers & Wolves @ CSU Chico
