The Noise Pop Podcast
The Noise Pop Podcast is a bi-monthly series showcasing noteworthy new releases from the independent and underground music scene, produced by Noise Pop: San Francisco’s favorite indie music, arts and film festival. We deliver episodes that are engaging, distinctive, and always rooted in the music we love, that we think you will too. Along with music recommendations, Host Adrian Spinelli (Paste Magazine, SF Chronicle, Fest300) interviews artists, tastemakers, and professionals from every corner of the indie music scene about recent music discoveries, and larger topics on the state of independent music and the process of writing and recording music.

In this live edition of Noisemakers, we're joined by three of the East Bay's most notable up and coming artists in Xiomara, Madeline Kenney and 1-O.A.K. Listen in for intimate performances and conversations with our guests, from an event that took place at Oakland's Starline Social Club on Thursday, April 6th.

The latest release from Montreal's TOPS flows into the most accessible cut we've heard from Shabazz palaces yet and the mix rounds out with a track from Brooklyn's Nick Hakim, whose debut album is our most anticipated of the month.
