  • Bird By Snow
Fletcher Tucker is a product of the wilds of Nothern California and the Pacific northwest, so it's not entirely surprising that his music sounds the way it does: subtle, remote, rich, contemplative. Bird By Snow released a full-length, Common Wealth, earlier this year; today, Tucker is offerring two woodsy, hypnotic tracks for download as a digital 7-inch, plus another new song.

Not exactly crafted into pop-accessible bites, on this new digital 7-inch, Bird By Snow layers vocal melodies on top of each other for a thick stream, and accompanies them with minimal instrumentation and percussion. It's beautiful music for the rainy season.

Another new song, "Across the Water" offers a more lush, familiar-sounding take on the band's sound. We recommend you start here, and if you like what you hear, check out the 7-inch above.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
