MP3 of the Day: Nothing People

In poking around the lineup for this weekend's Budget Rock festival, I've become smitten with the online offerings of Orland, Ca. band Nothing People. The group's no wave sci fi aesthetic is self-described as the sound of "fuzz, echo and smoke;" other critics liken the group to Debris, and I hear bits of Eno-style art-glam hooks in there as well. Their music is a buncha dirgy, dirty, downward-spiral looking goodies, recommended also for fans of the Intelligence's nervous buzzing (although Nervous People are a tad more polished). So many good songs on their MySpace page, but I'd recommend most "Sickness" and "In the City." If you like what you hear, grab a copy of their limited-edition LP, Anonymous, here, and check them live at Budget Rock on Saturday, Oct. 25. -- Jennifer Maerz

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
