"Milk For The Angry release video for "Upside 85""

There’s a certain cosmic energy that strings together the scenes of the newest music video for the track “Upside 85” (streaming below) by Oakland trio Milk For The Angry; the randomness is reworked into a psychedelic reality quite easily, through flashing images of thrashing, glitter-soaked bodies, a live performance, and lone motorcyclist on the freeway. The grunge-soaked garage rock is heavy with psychedelic influences, riffing off of the surf-sensibilities of the scene. Listening to “Upside 85”—or frankly, any track by the Cali natives—feels like stepping into a wonderfully gritty postcard of the Golden State. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that the band, founded by Dana Windstorm and Matt Kerslake after a chance encounter in a Bay Area drum shop, is essentially a living mythologization of what it means to be a musician in California. Or maybe it’s just something about the reverb. Regardless, it’s difficult to listen to this track without stepping back afterwards and thinking, “there’s something special here.” Milk For The Angry is playing a string of local shows soon, with the next announced date being February 28th at Bottom of the Hill. - The Deli Magazine (San Francisco)

"Straight out of Oakland: Cleopatra's "Jumper Cable Jam""

OAKLAND, Calif. (KTVU) - “You better get those cables out and charge your sh**!”

Have you heard this impromptu ditty straight out of Oakland?

San Francisco-based psych-band Milk For the Angry posted this charming video on their Facebook page this week. It shows a nice musical interaction between a couple of band members sitting on a stoop near the Oakland-Emeryville border and a neighbor named Cleopatra.

"It was totally random. She was just walking along," Cole Bailey, the band's drummer said over the phone on Thursday. "This lady's car was broken down and we started playing guitars."

Apparently Cleo's friend brought the jumper cables for another person in distress. But first, she was sure to really get into this off-the-cuff jam, complete with random references to ice-cream and popcorn before settling in on the subject matter at hand-- jumper cables.

"It was totally unexpected and spontaneous. It blew us away," Bailey said.

Bailey filmed the encounter and can be heard chiming in with some harmonies. The front man-guitarist Dana Lindstrom holds the rhythm down as he sits on the steps and strums, while an inspired Cleopatra sings and dances.

Bailey said the band was in the process of recording their forthcoming album, 'Extraterrestrial Desert', which is due in March.

You can catch the band live at Bottom of the Hill on March 26.

As for Cleopatra, you'll just have to keep your eye out for this singing-lyrical sensation if you're in the East Bay. - FOX KTVU Channel 2 News

"Review + Photos: Milk For The Angry at the Elbo Room"

Words by William Wayland

New Bay Area band Milk For The Angry dropped their psychedelic-y, grunge-y, surf-y debut album, Make Like An Animal, on Thursday and we caught their next show on Sunday where they headlined the Elbo Room in San Francisco.

Milk For The Angry may be a new band on the San Francisco scene, but this is an experienced bunch looking to prove themselves quickly. They showed that by hanging with the English Language, a Portland band with San Francisco roots and a menacing garage-rock sound. If you missed their West Coast tour, listen to their latest album, Mother Tongue.

Opening act Nyre kicked the evening off with music we call “Cake-y quirk” and “shoegazey drone.” - The Bay Bridged

Milk For The Angry's dysfunctionally jaunty brand of melodic, guitar-drenched psychedelic rock was born in the hills outside of San Francisco in 2017. Since their formation, they have released four albums and an EP.

 The band had a brush with mainstream media when Fox KTVU 2 did an article about an impromptu jam they had with their neighbor Cleopatra coined "Jumper Cable Jam," which quickly became an internet smash. Since then Milk For The Angry has been featured on A&E twice. Once on “Neighborhood Wars” and again on “Neighborhood Wars: The Aftermath.” 

 Milk For The Angry has shared the stage with the likes of Death From Above 1979, Local H, A Giant Dog, Hooveriii, Minus 5, Tommy Guerrero, Post Animal, SadGirl, Ecstatic Vision, The Slaps, Slow Pulp, Manwolves, New Candy’s, and on. 

 The lineup consists of Dana Lindstrom (vocals, guitar), Michael Masters (guitar, vocals), Erinn Wilkerson (bass, vocals), and Michael Pinkham (drums).
