Side Notes is a weekly round up of everything and anything that catches our short attention span over the past week, coming to you live and direct every Friday.
Textured Waves - Sea Us Now
The all-black, all-female group Textured Waves aims to give voice to people of diverse backgrounds, and the chance to increase the diversity needed in the lineup, both in and out of the water. Sea Us Now shows them turn up to a California beach break in a 1960s station wagon, single fin logs and retro swimsuits to paddle out in an alterntaive reality.
Mazzy Star - Halah
This year marks the 30th anniversary of Mazzy Star's debut album She Hangs Brightly. Opening track Halah sets the dreamy tone for the band. Hope Sandaval's haunting voice and David Roback's hazed guitar, Mazzy Star defined the 90s with their sound which went on to influence countless artists from Psychic Ills to Lana Del Rey.

Tommy Sandoval | On the Other Side
Tommy Sandoval, between Fallen and Zero, dropped the heaviest clips of the mid-2000s. Equal only to his commitment to delivering the gnarliest sections was his heavy commitment to partying, and partying hard. Good endings are hard to come by, but between Tommy and Bam Margera, it's always good to see them come out the other side.
