THE BAY BRIDGED TAKE DEUCE

We've landed in this week's Editor's Picks.

"After hearing "Boat Song", the lead single off Steel Cranes' upcoming debut LP Ouroboros, I was hooked by their heavy as all get-out sound.  Now, the Oakland duo (consisting of singer and guitarist Tracy Shapiro and drummer Amanda Schukle) is back with a second offering off that upcoming album, due out September 24 - the equally heavy "Moving On", which has an almost poppy chorus without sacrificing the band's snarling edge across Shapiro's story of a relationship gone bad."
