Tim Marcus and Or, The Whale


A young San Francisco-based band called Or, The Whale relies heavily on the talents of pedal steel guitarist Tim Marcus. Their high energy sound is big on rock rhythms and vocal harmonies, with Tim's psychedelic steel lines floating on top like icing on a cake. Or, The Whale classifies themselves as Americana, but I hear a lot of early Haight Ashbury in their sound. An unlikely place for pedal steel? Not as strange as you might think.

Or, The Whale is at Cafe Coda in Chico, California tonight, and they're doing a mini-tour of Oregon next week. To learn more about this unusual band and watch a couple of their online videos, visit their web site OrTheWhale.com.
