Revíva has made a name for themselves in the Albuquerque music scene through their inspiring lyrics, unique sound, and positive vibes. Forming in the fall of 2009, they have turned ears with their original Burqueño/Reggae/Rock rhythm and lyrics, both in English and Spanish that touch the soul. 

Consisting of seven members; Glenn “Buddha” Benavidez (Bass), Cody Jones (Percussion), Ragon Espinosa (Drums), Jerel Garcia (Guitar) Rick Gonzales(keys, Melodica) Brian Shonerd(keys) and Chris Brennan (Vocals/Song writer). They started performing at small local venues for friends and family, but have quickly staked their claim as one of New Mexico’s premier bands. They have played at venues such as Sunshine Theater and Hard Rock Pavilion and are a mainstay at the Launchpad and local pubs. Reviva has opened for the likes of The Wailers, Ozomatli, The Expendables, Fishbone, Tribal Seeds and The Dirty Heads. One of their biggest achievements so far was being voted to play main stage at Edgefest 2012; beating out over 100 bands for the honor. As well as winning a nationwide vote to play at Arise Festival in Colorado. These accomplishments was really a testament to the dedicated fan base Reviva has formed in their time as a band.

Revíva’s mission as a band is to revive themselves and others through the healing power of music and to give back and help those in the community. They aim to spread positivity and inspire change in the way people think and act. Perhaps the greatest act of selflessness is evident in the actions of lead singer Chris Brennan, who dedicated two and a half years of his life to join the Peace Corps. He was volunteering in Pearl Lagoon, Nicaragua teaching English and helping their community. His goal is to start a music exchange program between Nicaragua and Albuquerque students. Despite Chris’ absence, Revíva continued to play music locally with heart, soul and most importantly LOVE. If you have a cause in which you think we might be able to contribute to, please download our music and contact us.

Nuestro grupo formamos en el Noviembre de 2009. Hay seis de nosotros en el grupo, y cantamos en inglés y español. Tocamos canciones originales de las tradiciones Reggae, Burqueño, y Los Azules. A nosotros la mas importa es ayudar a nuestra comunidad cada día y noche, y lo mejor es verde (chile). Es en nuestras almas.

The Riddims are a High Desert Reggae band from Albuquerque, New Mexico. The Riddims music is inspired by Roots Reggae, Hip Hop, Rock and our native New Mexican music. These inspirations formed the genre "High Desert Reggae" which is gaining popularity in the Southwest Region. The Riddims consist of 5 members; Myles Chavez, Chris Cruz, Donavon Ortiz, Pete Gabaldon, and Tony Gallegos. The Riddims have been honored to share the stage with many touring acts including; New Kingston, Hirie, Seedless, E.N Young, Through the Roots, Arise Roots, Iya Terra, The Supervillians, Brewfish, Fayuca, Black Bottom Lighters, as well as Reggae Legends Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare plus more!

James McMurtry continues riding waves of universal acclaim for Complicated Game. “At a stage where most veteran musicians fall into a groove or rut, McMurtry continues to surprise,” Texas Music magazine recently noted. “[Complicated Game] is a collection of narratives as sharply observed as any from McMurtry, but with a contemplative depth that comes with maturity.” Indeed, the Austin resident's latest collection spotlights a singular craftsman as he turns inward (“These Things I've Come to Know,” “You Got to Me”). “The lyrical theme is mostly about relationships,” McMurtry says. “It's also a little about the big old world versus the poor little farmer or fisherman.”

Either way, McMurtry spins his stories with a novelist’s eye (“Long Island Sound”) and a painter's precision (“She Loves Me”) throughout. “[McMurtry] takes listeners on a road trip of unprecedented geographic and emotional scope,” No Depression raved of Complicated Game. “Lyrically, the album is wise and adventurous, with McMurtry — who’s not prone to autobiographical tales — credibly inhabiting characters from all walks of life.” “[McMurtry] fuses wry, literate observations about the world with the snarl of barroom rock,” National Public Radio echoed. “The result is at times sardonic, subversive and funny, but often vulnerable and always poignant.”

Longtime fans know McMurtry’s vibrant vignettes have turned heads for more than a quarter-century now. His critically successful first album Too Long in the Wasteland (1989), which was produced by John Mellencamp, marked the beginning of a series of acclaimed projects for Columbia and Sugar Hill Records. In 1996, McMurtry received a Grammy nomination for Long Form Music Video for “Where’d You Hide the Body.” Additionally, It Had To Happen (1997) received the American Indie Award for Best Americana Album. In his long career, songs like “Childish Things,” “Choctaw Bingo,” “Peter Pan,” “Levelland,” and “Out Here in the Middle” only begin the list of high watermarks. (Yes, Robert Earl Keen covered those last two, “Levelland” remaining a live staple.) Childish Things (2005) scored endless critical praise and spent six full weeks topping the Americana Music Radio chart. In 2006, it won the Americana Music Association’s Album of the Year. The track “We Can’t Make It Here” was named that rapidly rising organization’s Song of the Year, and was cited among The Nation’s "Best Protest Songs Ever.” Just Us Kids (2008) earned McMurtry his highest Billboard 200 chart position in nearly two decades and notched Americana Music Award nominations. Just Us Kids alone includes fan favorites “Hurricane Party,” “Ruby and Carlos” and “You’d a Thought.” Songs detailing the lives of everyday people, like “Fireline Road,” pierce listeners’ hearts with sharp sociopolitical commentary. “James McMurtry may be the truest, fiercest songwriter of his generation,” said Stephen King.

Fun loving bluegrass string band music from NW Arkansas

Arkansauce is a genre-hopping, five piece string band from northwest Arkansas, bending the rules and blurring the lines between bluegrass, newgrass, folk, americana, and country. With two albums under their belt in the last two years, and a loyal following growing every day in the Natural State, the band is proud to be stepping into a hard-driving sound they can call their own. The band’s roots go back to 2011 when founding members Ethan Bush, Zac Archuleta, and Stephen Jolly began picking together after becoming acquainted through mutual connections in the close-knit Fayetteville music scene. After a couple of years building a repertoire of original music and releasing their first album as a trio, the boys were joined by Tom Andersen on the upright and Adams Collins on the five-string banjo. The road-tested chops Andersen and Collins brought to the table helped to cultivate the mature, well-rounded sound needed to accommodate their sophomore release “All Day Long.” An Arkansauce show is riddled with improvisational guitar, banjo, and mandolin leads, paired with powerful harmonies and heart-felt songwriting. There’s an undeniably intimate connection between the band and their fans that's contagious and leaves everyone in front of, and on the stage wanting more. The boys of Arkansauce hold their heads high, as they look forward to enjoying everything the music they love has in store for them and their fans.

Devotchka with Special Guest Last to Know

MONOTONE PRODUCTIONS

DeVotchKa is a four-piece multi-instrumental and vocal ensemble. They take their name from the Russian word devochka (девочка), meaning "girl".

Last To Know is the band they are.

7/29/2018 8:00pm

$15 · 7:00pm · All Ages / Bar with ID
GET TICKETS

DeVotchKa’s new album, “Live with the Colorado Symphony” (Cicero Recordings LTD). The band, a melting pot of genres, forms an authentic and wholly original style of rock ‘n’ roll. DeVotchKa have been recording and performing for over a decade. “We have been working towards this moment ever since the band began,” remembers Nick Urata, lead singer and frontman for DeVotchKa. “We've always had orchestral leanings, we wrote for more and more players with every album, when the chance to perform with an entire symphony came, we jumped at it. We thought it would be the perfect night for a live recording and hope the listener feels like they are in the room with us.” 

A once in a lifetime opportunity for a band, some of DeVotchKa’s most iconic songs were revisited, restructured, and performed with a full 60-piece orchestra. Rather than hire a composer to create the charts for each instrument, the band took it upon themselves, with Tom Hagerman spending months locked away in his garage fleshing out each note that the orchestra performed.

The premise of charting DeVotchKa’s songs for a large symphony began shortly after the release of the band’s score for the film “Little Miss Sunshine”. A critical and box office hit, the film was nominated for the Best Picture Oscar and, for DeVotchKa's soundtrack, a Grammy. The band from Denver finally received the attention they deserved around the world, headlining large venues and performing at practically every major music festival, from Coachella to Bonnaroo, Glastonbury to Pukkelpop. The band looks forward to performing with symphonies of all sizes whenever possible.

“Live with the Colorado Symphony” gave the band a chance to have every melody, harmony, and counterpoint, recorded in the studio, to be translated to real people, playing the parts together. 

American Aquarium with Special Guest Jaime Wyatt

raw, rootsy rock & roll

$12 · 6:00pm · All Ages / Bar with ID

For nearly a decade, American Aquarium have spent the majority of their days on the road, burning through a sprawl of highways during the day and playing hours of raw, rootsy rock & roll at night. Sometimes, the job is a grind. Most times, it's a blessing. American Aquarium's songs, filled with biographical lyrics about last calls, lost love and long horizons, have always explored both sides of that divide. For every drunken night at the bar, there's a hangover in the morning. For every new relationship, there's the chance of a broken heart. It's that kind of honesty — that sort of balance — that makes the band's newest album, Wolves, their strongest release to date.

And it nearly didn't happen. When American Aquarium traveled to Muscle Shoals to record Burn.Flicker.Die. in 2012, they were convinced the album would be their last. Even though they had enlisted the help of award-winning singer-songwriter Jason Isbell to produce the sessions, they were exhausted; weathered and whittled to the bone by more than a half-decade of heavy partying and heavier touring. To a small group of diehard fans, they were absolute rockstars… but being rockstars to a cult audience doesn't always put food on your table or gas in your tank. BJ Barham, the band's frontman, was so poor that he'd been living out of a storage unit for months, unable to afford an apartment in the band's hometown of Raleigh, North Carolina.

Clearly, something had to give. Maybe it was time to make one final album — an album about failure, desperation and disillusionment — and then throw in the towel.

As fate would have it, Burn.Flicker.Die. eventually proved itself to be the band’s most successful release to date. Critics loved it. Fans rallied behind it. Fast forward 2 years and almost 500 shows later, the band has travelled the world, quadrupled their fan base and reinvented their passion for the road. When the time came to record another album in June 2014, it only made sense to do something that celebrated survival rather than failure...

 

Jaime Wyatt

Jaime Wyatt’s newest release Felony Blues, whose title is a nod to records like David Allan Coe’s Penitentiary Blue, is largely an autobiographical collection of convict love stories, prison songs, and honky-tonk laments. 

Wyatt is a striking figure with an old soul and a voice like a force of nature. Regardless of genre, the Los Angeles-based Wyatt is a dynamic performer, who sails naturally between vintage ‘60s and ‘70s country/rock ’n’ soul anthems and heartfelt country ballads of love and corruption. Country radio station 95.3 The Bear recently named her, alongside Sturgill Simpson and Margo Price, as “one of the country artists you may not have heard of, but need to hear.”

Tickets are $31 in advance, $35 day of show (including all service charges).  $1 from each ticket sold will go to the Ghetto Youth Foundation.

The second son of Bob and Rita Marley, Stephen Marley was born on April 20, 1972; he began his career as a precocious six-year old singing, dancing and playing percussion with his siblings in the group The Melody Makers whose first single "Children Playing In The Streets" was produced by their father in 1979 and released on Tuff Gong, the label founded by Bob in the late 60s. Just like his older brother Ziggy, Stephen acquired his initial studio skills by watching his father. While still a teenager he assisted in the production of The Melody Makers' albums including their three Best Reggae Album Grammy winners "Conscious Party" (Virgin Records, 1989) "One Bright Day" (Virgin Records, 1990) and "Fallen Is Babylon" (Elektra Entertainment, 1998). In 1993 Ziggy and Stephen founded Ghetto Youths International as a means of controlling their own music and helping upcoming artists. Stephen's earliest solo production efforts for Ghetto Youths International includes his late grandmother's (Cedella Booker) album "My Altar", followed in 1995 by the Ziggy Marley and The Melody Makers single "Works To Do" and younger brother Damian's "10,000 Chariots". Both singles hit the Jamaican charts and generated much excitement surrounding Stephen's burgeoning production expertise. 

The first project that brought Stephen's production capabilities widespread attention was "Chant Down Babylon", where he audaciously manipulated his father's original vocal outtakes from the 1970s Island Records' sessions, splicing them into duets with hip-hop and R&B artists, while updating the Wailers' richly textured one-drop rhythms with an assortment of samples, loops and overdubs. The results ranged from the late Guru's heartfelt take on "Johnny Was" to Busta Rhymes' street version of the reverential "Rasta Man Chant" to Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and Joe Perry's hard rocking raucousness on "Roots Rock Reggae". "Chant Down Babylon" achieved its objective of bringing Bob's music to a new generation of fans, earned a Grammy nomination, was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America and has sold more than one million copies worldwide. 

His 2011 album Revelation Pt. 1 – The Root of Life won the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album in 2012. The follow-up, Revelation Pt. 2 - The Fruit of Life was released in 2016. The New York Times wrote of Revelation Pt. 2, "Mr. Marley’s aching voice suits love songs just as well as protests... and more often than not, Mr. Marley lives up to the ambition that his last name demands of him."

Leftover Salmon (2 Nights)

For the past quarter-century, Colorado’s Leftover Salmon has established itself as one of the great purveyors of Americana music, digging deep into the well that supplies its influences; rock ‘n’ roll, folk, bluegrass, Cajun, soul, zydeco, jazz and blues. During their twenty-five plus years as a band they have headlined shows and festivals from coast to coast, released nine albums, and maintained a vibrant, relevant and influential voice in the music world. The evolution of Leftover Salmon’s music is influenced by Leftover Salmon co-founders Drew Emmitt (mandolin/vocals) and Vince Herman‘s (guitar/singer) keen musical instincts, and follows a musical path that adheres to the deep tradition the duo started when they first formed the group along with deceased banjo player Mark Vann. The addition of new band members over the years has nurtured an unmistakable evolution and freshness in Leftover Salmon’s sound, and has added an edge to the long-lasting power of the band’s music.

Dumpstaphunk 

Dumpstaphunk stands out among New Orleans' best as one of the funkiest bands to ever arise from the Crescent City. Born on the Jazz & Heritage Festival stage, and descended from Neville family bloodlines, these soldiers of funk ignite a deep, gritty groove that dares listeners not to move. Their performances combine ingenious musicianship and complex funk and jazz arrangements with soulful melodies that are simple enough for anyone to enjoy.

Johnny Hickman and David Lowery from Cracker

Cracker, the group that veritably introduced brash irreverence and irony into alt-rock, are back and in top form on their 429 Records debut, Sunrise In The Land Of Milk And Honey. This rich new trove of sharp-witted songs showcases a bristling, late 70’s – early 80’s power pop punk aesthetic which hits as hard as it did at the band’s formation 17 years ago. Eight albums (one platinum and three gold) and a barrel full of anthemic hit songs later, Cracker endures, using their ability to weave decades of influences into an album that is seamlessly riveting...

Poor Man's Whiskey (2 Nights)

Poor Man's Whiskey plays "High Octane Hootenanny" music…Dance, laugh, sing. Emerging from the San Francisco bay area music scene this quintet has developed a sound that is eclectic and engaging. PMW has been winning over national audiences with their upbeat performances, zany stage antics, and infectious songs. While seamlessly integrating acoustic and electric instruments the band weaves tales of everyday life, inviting the audience to become a part of each show.

Gasoline Lollipops

Gasoline Lollipops is a Colorado band that combines the sincerity of dirt-floor folk with the energy and rebelliousness of punk. It's an all-new incarnation of alt-country that’s both high-energy and heartfelt, like the American highway's soundtrack. Colorado Daily readers voted Gasoline Lollipops "Best Local Musician/Group" for 2017. In 2016, Denver Westword named GasolineLollipops Colorado's Best Country Artist. In addition to touring repeatedly in America, Europe and Belize, the GasPops have also been on the bills of a number of great music festivals, including SXSW; NedFest; the Westword Showcase; Divide Festival; Bohemian Nights @ New West Fest; UMS Denver; Higher Ground Music Festival; Empire Americana; FoCoMX; Frozen Dead Guy Days and more.

Trout Steak Revival

Ever since winning the 2014 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Competition, Trout Steak Revival has quickly become a quintessential Colorado band. The band won an Emmy Award for a soundtrack they contributed to a Rocky Mountain PBS web documentary. They’ve collaborated with school children in mentoring programs in Denver and Steamboat Springs. Their music is featured on Bank of Colorado’s radio and television advertisements. Most recently, Westword named them Denver’s Best Bluegrass Band, and they were nominated as a Momentum Band of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association.

Sweet Lillies

High energy, progressive, original Americana music Colorado style. The Sweet Lillies’ high-energy, melodic tunes have quickly captured the hearts of fans in Colorado and beyond. The band, formed in November of 2013, credits its appeal to the original and compelling songwriting of three women who share an unwavering commitment to life on the road. The magnetic combination of Julie Gussaroff on the upright bass, Becca Bisque on the viola, and Melly Frances on percussion and lead vocals – together with powerful three-part female harmony and a cast of exciting instrumentalists – gives this band a rare and alluring sound. As testament to their appeal, The Sweet Lillies have already shared the stage with the likes of Peter Rowan, Vince Herman of Leftover Salmon, Kyle Hollingsworth of The String Cheese Incident, and Andy Hall of The Infamous String Dusters, Jeff Austin, and Bridget Law (founding member of Elephant Revival). Based out of Colorado’s Front Range, The Sweet Lillies are continually expanding their audience and reach with a contagious love of music and a get-up-and-dance attitude that spreads lots of love and smiles.

Last To Know

Last to Know is discofunkgrass from Taos, New Mexico.

 

 

 

 

 

Liver Down the River

From the high mountain river-valley of Durango Colorado comes a six piece funk-adelic-grass band called Liver Down The River. The group has their roots in countless river floats, campfires, late night picking, and Colorado living. Since it’s creation in 2012, the band has strived to have nothing but a good time. Their unique sound and high energy performances have lead them to share the stage with the likes of the Kitchen Dwellers, Head for the Hills, Gipsy Moon, WhiteWater Ramble, Tony Furtado, and Bill Nershi to name a few.

The Noseeums

The Noseeums are an up and coming Funky/Progressive/Americana/"groove-grass" Jamband from the mountains of Taos, New mexico! Since their inception in November of 2017, they're growing reputation has led to a rising following of enthusiastic fans in the southwest. The Noseeums combine various genres into one innovative style. Their unique and creative sound is inspired by a diverse range of music. They unite rock and roll, funky rhythms, and old school groove with a progressive sound. Their approach to their playing style is comparable to the groovy, revolutionary jam-bands of old, such as "The Grateful Dead", and the high octane modernly dynamic, and improvisational ensembles of today's sold out festivals, such as "Railroad Earth".

Pink Wiffleball Stinkhorn Presents...
BIG BUSINESS
These guys are Melvins.  Not THE Melvins, but sometimes members of the Melvins. Sound is similar with a vocal dissonance reminiscent of Vikings from outerspace 

BIG BUSINESS’ 5th studio album COMMAND YOUR WEATHER.  Recorded in Joshua Tree, CA, Command Your Weather sees Big Business return to its original two-man lineup of Jared Warren and Coady Willis.  It’s a haunting dream about the struggle for dominance of will over the power and unpredictability of nature.  Or it’s just a really great rock record, it depends on how weird you’re willing to get..  But you’ve never had so much fun being crushed in the cogs of the universe’s great machine, that much is for sure!  I mean, there’s no law against having a couple cold beers while we all burn in the fire of time, am I right?!

Recorded by Dave Curran of UNSANE/PIGS/BIG BUSINESS’ LAST RECORD fame.

Founded in 2003 in Seattle, WA., Big Business has spent the last 13 years touring the world and making records.  In 2006 Jared and Coady joined forces with the Melvins and moved to Los Angeles.  Performing as members of the Melvins and staying autonomous as their own band, they have been there ever since.

2nd Annual Jumpsuit Family Gathering

An intimate weekend of Music and Connection! Featuring The Polish Ambassador, Ayla Nereo, SaQi and much more!

9/6/2018 7:00pm

FREE · 6:00pm · All Ages / Bar with ID
GET TICKETS

So many of you have been eagerly awaiting and asking us about our plans for 2018 and... we couldn't be more thrilled to officially announce our 2nd Annual Jumpsuit Family Gathering to be held once again within the majestic confines of the Taos Mesa Brewing Amphitheater in beautiful Taos, NM! Another full weekend packed with workshops, yoga, song, dance, ceremony and celebration amidst the backdrop of the Sangre De Cristo mountains of northern New Mexico!

Thursday September 6th - Sunday September 9th 2018!

Featuring The Polish Ambassador (2 nights!), Wildlight Live, Ayla Nereo, and much of our beloved Jumpsuit family of music makers!

Jumpsuit Records strives for community, to bring people together to celebrate in song and nature in some of our favorite places around the world. Those of you who were there to expereince our first year in Taos know just how much magic we all generated together throughout the weekend! With many of our workshops led by the musicians on our line-up we all got to know each other so well and learned so much together. This is truly a grass-roots gathering at its core... it was a common sight to see one of our crew playing their heart out on stage one minute, chopping firewood for the bonfire another minute and then connecting with one another in the crowd the next. We lean towards the progressive and unconventional, putting the focus on uplifting art and partying with a purpose. We know that our extended family covets an intimate festival experience, one that fosters connection, encourages participation, offers education and the promise of invigorating life experiences. With those understandings and a nod towards a fresh take on the conventional festival model, The Polish Ambassador and Jumpsuit Records are thrilled to head back to the expansive beauty of the high deserts of New Mexico!

Taos Mesa Brewing Amphitheater sits just outside of downtown Taos, New Mexico, and features 360 degree stunning views of the high desert and Sangre de Cristo mountains. Complete with onsite restaurant, craft brewery, and an amazing outdoor amphitheater build in the Earthship style native to New Mexico. To preserve intimacy and create a vibrant pop-up community, less than 1000 festival tickets that include camping will be offered. These will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. The views from the venue and the onsite campground are some of the finest in the universe.

Taos is surrounded by stunning natural beauty in every direction. To the west, a few minutes from the venue, you will find the iconic Rio Grande River Gorge where you can hike, swim, and bask in local hot springs. To the east lies the town of Taos as well as the historic Taos Pueblo, which is the oldest continuously inhabited Indigenous community in the US. Downtown Taos features a beautiful Plaza where you will find delicious NM cuisine as well as a Farmer's Market and amazing local art & crafts.

Human camping passes must be purchased in addition to the full festival ticket... in addition each vehicle entering the campground will require a Car Camping Pass. Car Camping Passes include camping with your car. Less shlepping... more time to set up your ultimate camp village with all of your friends! Also.. ALL festival tickets AND camping tickets include Thursday arrival!

We will have MANY more details and announcements in the coming weeks! So stay tuned...

About MYSTIC BRAVES

Mystic Braves might be rooted in the psychedelic scene of the 1960s, but the band’s moment is happening right now.

After an impressive 2016 North American tour boasting packed shows from Brooklyn to San Francisco and beyond, the band returned home to Los Angeles only to sell out their homecoming show at the Echo, in advance. It’s only the latest in a string of triumphs for the band, who saw record turnout around the USA and for their winter European 2016 tour with sell out shows in London, Paris, Madrid, Berlin, Leon (Purple Weekend) and several other European cities.

Based in Echo Park, the Braves — who are signed to influential indie label Lolipop Records — are at the forefront of a white-hot garage band revival, and when the band isn’t selling out shows across the country, they’re playing alongside legendary groups like The Zombies and Brian Jonestown Massacre or providing the soundtrack for can’t-miss fashion events like Saint Laurent Paris’ Spring-Summer 2015 collection. While the group — made up of Julian Ducatenzeiler on guitar and vocals, Tony Malacara on bass and vocals, Shane Stotsenberg on guitar and vocals, Cameron Gartung on drums and Ignacio Gonzalez on organ and tambourine — isn’t straying far from what Ducatenzeiler calls “a blend of influence and sound that is unprecedented in contemporary music”.

“We’ve always been a pop-structured psych band and we’re continuing along those lines,” Ducatenzeiler says. “But we’re trying some new things out as well. We’ve elevated the songwriting” Indeed, the group is experimenting with more exotic instruments and is building a library of new songs to show off its invigorating style not only in the studio but at a series of big-ticket festivals including Burgerama, Beach Goth, Desert Daze and the Austin Psych Fest.

It’s a long way from how the band began. “We had no idea when we started that we’d come as far as we have,” Ducatenzeiler says. “But from the moment we released our demos, people have really responded.”

 
 

THE CREATION FACTORY

People don’t dance anymore to rock bands, but The Creation Factory is here to change that.

Channeling the sounds of 1960s psychedelic beats, the Los Angeles-based five-piece isn't just making music—"we're capturing the sort of sounds that people don’t hear anymore," says front man Shane Stots—it's creating an experience.

"We’re bringing sounds back from the grave, maybe better than they were before,” Stots, who’s also a member of Los Angeles rock group Mystic Braves, says-and he’s not kidding. The group uses authentic 1960s gear (and an era-appropriate look) to create blues-infected rock designed to get a crowd’s feet moving. It’s no wonder, then, that the band-which sold out its first show and has a full length debut album out this May on Lolipop Records will be heading to Europe in August to perform at the mod & 60’s underground weekender Euroyeye.

The Creation Factory was formed in 2014 when Stots and Iggy Gonzalez (drums) pieced together a style infused gang of psychedelic bandits, including band members Neil Soiland and Gabriel Pacheco on guitar and Glenn Brigman on keyboards.

While the musical appeal of The Creation Factory's hard to ignore, Stots insists the band's also out to show fans what they've been missing.  “I’m trying to revive music and expose it to a younger generation," he says. "I'm going backwards to go forward."

So, while the past is firmly on The Creation Factory’s side, it’s the future that truly belongs to the band.
