BAMM.tv Best Albums Of The Year: The Flashbulb, Vandella

Posted on: No Comments

We asked some of the great acts who have performed for BAMM.tv to pick their favorite albums from the year gone by. Today it’s the turn of Benn Jordan (aka The Flashbulb) and Vandella …

BAMM.tv exclusive: Vandella, ‘Leaves’

Posted on: 1 Comment

Up for a little bit of genre-mashing this fine Tuesday? Well, we hope some folk-rock alt-country indie-pop motown-tinged bluesy classic rock floats your boat, because that’s the remarkable concoction we have on offer from San Francisco’s very own Vandella, a supremely talented four-piece who stopped by BAMM HQ a while back to treat us to an exclusive rendition of ‘Leaves.’

Like what you hear above? (Helpful hint: if you don’t, you should probably get your ears checked – waxy build-up can really hamper your musical appreciation). Well, if you happen to be in SF tomorrow (the 29th August) you can catch these guys live in Union Square. Perfect summer evening entertainment.
