The Bay Bridged, Volume 2

The Bay Bridged is one of my favorite music sites that champions its local musicians and shows. The site combines a music blog, audio podcasts, a video podcast, a concert calendar, and more into a truly essential portal for music fans in the San Francisco Bay Area (and those of us unlucky enough to live elsewhere). The level of entertainment value and professionalism is always high and impressive for a site not even two years old.

The Bay Bridged is a fiscally sponsored non-profit media organization, and supports itself through advertising, donations, and merchandise sales. Today, The Bay Bridged, Volume 2, a collection of 5 unreleased, exclusive tracks by Bay Area musicians, is released to raise funds for equipment upgrades, web hosting, and local artist promotion. The Bay Bridged, Volume 2 combines the best of vinyl and digital music. The beautiful 10" vinyl picture disc includes a link for high quality mp3 downloads of the tracks.

The tracklist:

Rogue Wave: "Empress" (preview at The Bay Bridged)
Emily Jane White: "Liza" (preview below)
Birds & Batteries: "Lightning" (preview at Aquarium Drunkard)
Two Sheds: "Good Intentions" (preview at All Shook Down)
Okay: "Goal" (preview at Cokemachineglow)

Below is a stream of Emily Jane White's contribution to The Bay Bridged, Volume 2, "Liza":
