newmusicmonday #13:: Dominant Legs

I feel a bit bad that during my recent stint out in Eastbay I really haven't given any shoutouts to SF area bands on new music Mondays.  I just found about Ryan Lynch's Dominant Legs {MySpace Music site w/ demo tracks; Hype Machine}.  Ryan {vocals, guitars [acoustic/electric], synth., & drum machines} does quirky pop and while Stereogum makes a comparison to Belle & Sebastian, which I can hear, there's a decidedly 80s referent here I just can't seem to recall right now.  BTW:: I love the "dissing" comments on Stereogum, which reminds me why I hate hipsters.  The Fader user the term "quivering" and and makes reference to Archie Bell, which are both apt.  Oh, maybe Lynch's music can start a new variant on the Fishstick meme.

Several Cali tour dates are coming up and a 7" is expected in 2010::
11/21 - San Francisco, CA @ Bottom Of The Hill
12/04 - San Diego, CA @ Loft
12/05 - Los Angeles, CA @ Troubadour
12/06 - San Barbara, CA @ Muddy Water

Twitterversion::  #newmusicmonday nº13 feature is #SanFrancisco's #DominantLegs {#RyanLynch}. Quirky quivery pop evoking Murdoch's B&S.  @Prof_K
