Produced by Noise Pop, San Francisco’s go-to indie music, arts and film festival for over 25 years and hosted by music journalist Adrian Spinelli (Paste Magazine, SF Chronicle, etc..), we deliver engaging episodes that are always rooted in the music that we love and that we know you will too.

The end of February is a very exciting time for us at the Noise Pop Podcast. For one, it means the Noise Pop Festival and the beginning of the festival season are here. It also means that by now we have a pretty good idea of what new records will be making their way to our playlists throughout the year.

 One of our favorite things about the Noise Pop Podcast is being able to introduce listeners to great, but lesser-known artists. However, we also love episodes like this one - a round up of some of our well-known, favorite artists all releasing new music at the same time. From James Blake to My Bloody Valentine, this episode kicks off a year of highly anticipated comebacks and follow-ups. Which reminds us, make sure to comment or call in with your most anticipated album of 2013 for our next episode!
