July 28, 2014 / BY MacbethBoth last year and this year, our good bud Daniel Ricciardo walked into this race not expected to win. This year, he listened to Angels and Airwaves and won. Congratulations, mate, and epic win! Daniel's quote after the race, "I'm young, I'm still going to keep improving. I ain't getting slower." Look at this awesome dance Daniel does in hopes to get his race engineer to lighten up!

May 20, 2014 / BY MacbethSoda Pants has just premiered their debut single exclusively on AlternativeNation.net. "Amarillo," the tenth track off their upcoming self-titled full-length album, is a folk rock, catchy tune. Check it out below! Soda Pants is a group of young, talented folk-rock virtuosos influenced by classic rock legends such as Paul Simon, The Band, and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young. The group formed at UCSD in March 2012 when musicians Erin Bower, Will Chapman, Mike Sierks, and Grady Kestler met and entered the Battle of the Bands. The folk rock four-piece began touring across the west coast, opening for eclectic acts such as Matt & Kim, Capital Cities, Portugal the Man, Andrew McMahon, the Mowglis, Youngblood Hawke, Run River North, and many more. Soda Pants was later given the San Diego Music Award for Best New Artist in 2013, opened for Conan O’ Brien during a visit to UCSD, and received airplay on 102.1 KPRI, 94.9 FM, and 88.1 KPFZ. The group’s debut self-titled album will be released on May 9th, 2014. The LP was produced, recorded, and mixed by Jeff Berkley at Berkley Sound and mastered at Lurssen Mastering Studios by Gavin Lurssen and Reuben Cohen.
