“Are you ready for real talk?” asks whoever the gods of social media are on the Trails and Ways Facebook page. The Oakland band is referring to a new Tumblr, called Non•Market, launched by a collective of DIY bands in the Bay Area, where “real talk” is the MO. Each week, one musician/band will talk about another musician/band; the following week they’ll pass the baton, and the subject band will discuss another band, and so on and so forth. It’s sparse, simple, and a great way to listen to tracks as well as get to sneak a peek at how musicians think about music. This week, check out Astronauts, etc writing about Waterstrider. — A.G.

It should be spooky, scary, and oh-so glamorous! — W.P.
