San Francisco’s Continental had a reputation for making smart, cinematic music from 1998-2007. Gabriel Coan, Craig Escalante, Mike Eul, Matt Holt, and Brent Kimble blended noise, beats, and melody into a sound that managed the rare feat of being interesting without being pretentious, complex without being cerebral.
"Continental's beautiful brand of music is never pretentious, but always confident and self-assured...The songs all tell stories without words, much like classical soundtracks to fairly tales." - Zero Magazine
"...the kind of ethereal, swirling music perfect for languid lovemaking." - SF Weekly
