Male Gaze.

Male Gaze.

San Francisco garage-rock outfit Male Gaze combine the sweet spirit of indie rock with a darker post-punk flavor. The band's songs tend to play with your emotions, burying them under fuzzed-out guitar and submerging them in a bath of reverb. The grave bellow of vocalist Matt Jones rings comparable to certain goth-rock frontmen, but the band pave their own path within the garage-rock scene. Boasting members of Mayyors, and Blasted Canyons, Male Gaze comes across as both charming and vulnerable on their latest release, Miss Taken. They play here with local garage-punk mad me Fire Heads and maniacal punk trio Solid Freex. —Emili Earhart
