No More Waves



Roger Anderson, founder of the music web site Cool Waves, announced he's calling it quits today. Cool Waves started two-and-a-half years ago to promote the surge of Bay Area bands of the shoegaze, post-rock, and dream-pop variety -- listing bios, links, and MP3 samples of the bands. Eventually, the project grew to include three mini Cool Waves Festivals, with bands like Montana, Foxtail Somersault, Tomihira, and Anderson's solo project, Halcyon High performing. To date, some 85 bands are featured on the site. Anderson says he's stopping work on Cool Waves because he's moving, but anyone inclined to keep it up should contact him.
