Bad Weather CA release 2nd album in 2012 on Akron/Family label

Bad Weather California’s new LP Sunkissed, is their 2nd full length album
and debut for Akron/Family’s Family Tree Records label. The album was
recorded in Detroit at the home studio of engineer Chris Koltay, produced
by A/F guitarist/singer Seth Olinsky. Sunkissed is being released by
Family Tree February 21, 2012. Sunkissed is like a 65 Impala convertible
driving down the road where the Minutemen, Meat Puppets and early Flaming
Lips shake hands with your parentsʼ classic rock record collection,
the spirit of Juju master King Sunny Ade looking at you in the rear view
mirror. It’s the soundtrack to a Summer party that’s always happening
around the corner.

Bad Weather California are four west coast weirdos making feel-good
true-energy rock music out in the desert mountains, a punk band for the
new millenia. Raised on the alt music they discovered in Thrasher magazine
and gas powered generator shows in the small desert town where they grew
up, they have spent the past seven years playing, touring, and searching
the floors they slept on for those same feelings and sounds. Looking for
them on their dusty old four tracks or alternately threatening to just
plain fall apart from them right in front of your eyes at one of their
legendary Denver house shows. Chris from BWC explains “as a kid, I used to
have this intense nervous feeling when I would go watch punk bands play.
Like anything might go down. Like it was unstable. I’m looking for that
again. Striving for it.”

“We met BWC in the Winter of 2009 when we played with them at a sports bar
in Vail, Colorado. I actually missed the BWC show that night but hung out
after our set, made friends with all the guys in the band, and they gave
me a copy of their record Young Punks. We listened to it compulsively
driving around Colorado that week in our rental van, entranced by the
Studio One-style backing vocals and sun-drenched West African guitars.
