NeuFutur Magazine Introduces Finest Dearest


In early summer of 2004, San Francisco’s Finest Dearest began practicing in a basement bedroom, hashing out concepts and ideas. After a series of musical chairs in the lineup, the band emerged with a bolder, more confident sound as showcased on their new self-titled, full length album. Finest Dearest has been featured on WOXY’s Lounge Act, NPR’s Open Mic, and local publications including The San Francisco Chronicle and the San Francisco Bay Guardian.


Finest Dearest is Carly Schneider [vocals], Steven Treffers [drums], Christine Bolghand and Josh Luke [guitars], and AJ Dickerson [bass].


“…Listening to the San Francisco quintet reminds me of the late ‘90s, before iPods and Myspace, when K Records meant something and “indie pop” was still a phrase in my vocabulary…the band takes me back to a time when indie rock was more about earnestness than

irony.” – Sarah Han, San Francisco Bay Guardian


“It’s been a pleasure watching the band evolve…ratcheting up the rock quotient in its sound while maintaining the strong melodic element from the earlier work…we’ve been waiting for Finest Dearest’s fi rst full length album for a while now…” – The Bay Bridged


RIYL: Pretty Girls Make Graves, Blonde Redhead, Sleater-Kinney, Archers of Loaf
