Track of the Day: Ring Trick

San Francisco's Ring Trick is a very goal-oriented artist. For one month the electronic producer/musician plans on uploading one new demo a day to his blog. "The only rule," he writes, "is that it has to be recorded and produced in the span of 24 hours."

Scroll down the page and you can hear a batch of dreamy, soundtracky tunes influenced by the great minimalist, ambient composers and heavy shoegazer idols. With every new song,  Ring Track also posts a video for the artist who has particularly inspired him that day (Stars of the Lid, Broken Social Scene, Aphex Twin, Flaming Lips).

Our pick of the batch so far: "Puddle Jumping," which builds and breaks like little meteor showers of distorted guitar and synth melodies.

    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
