    Farallons, the band.

    Not to be confused with the group of islands and sea stacks off the San Francisco coast, Farallons is a local band getting ready to record a debut album. And Farallons is also a local producer of trap and electro house - styles of electronic dance music (or EDM).

    As for the band, last year's debut Farallons EP and early live performances were all well received by local media and attracted a wide range of fans, some who gravitate to pronounced surf-rock vibes, others to the folk-like vocal harmonies. A Kickstarter seeks public help to raise $11,800 to put towards the cost of recording, engineering, hiring session musicians and producing both CDs and cassette versions of Farallons' debut album. At press time, the band has raised a potential $5,470 toward the goal, with 20 days left in the campaign.

    Farallon the EDM artist is the alias of Jay Jachinowski, who describes himself on his Soundcloud as both a musician and producer from San Francisco and Concord. He has just signed on with Revolutionize Records, a label based in Toronto and London with an ethos of nurturing and supporting new artists.

    Jam on, both Farallons.
