Try not to describe the Oakland quartet Bells Atlas using worn-out genre labels, just think of the feeling you get when you hear their voices and rhythms blend. The records they brought in give a glimpse as to what emerges in the studio: from African highlife and Nina Simone to 90s hip-hop and alt rock.
Catch Bells Atlas every Monday night in January at the Era Art Bar and Lounge in Oakland as part of their Oakland Music Festival residency.
