Mystic Braves
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.”
Corners
Since last time they played PTP, CORNERS have re-defined their sound with add a new wave of synth and re-emerged as one of LA's best new bands of the year. IF the Velvets had ever learned to surf, they probably would have ended up sounding like CORNERS. You dig?
Part Time
Part Time
From his apartment in The Tenderloin, David Speck languidly jams out a soundtrack to the happily half-wasted lives of a San Franciscan generation. Effortlessly stacking his hazy vibes sky high, the debut album What Would You Say? released on Mexican Summer was a glorious mix of post-Cure pop rubbing up against West Coast boogie, surfguitars and Krautrock grooves, all with the intimacy of a house party performance.

Having left Daniel Gottlieb of Altered Zones pondering whether Part Time is "the unintentionally great project of a poster-adoring musician away from the day job", Speck's warm, half-dissolved home production modestly betrays the brilliant song writing evident throughout his record. Sharing the sensibilities and musicianship of the 80s generation that so obviously inspires him, Part Time instead wraps it in something bright, earnest and - well, we don't often say this, but - really sexy.

The angular funk and twang, synth twinkles and keyboard brass, cowbells and relaxed vocals therefore easily become something new and perfectly placed. It's the buzz of local bars full of beautiful, every-day people, steadily getting more drunk and in love as the night slides by. It's karaoke booths and fizzing neon signs, bare legs and denim,
cigarettes, Polaroids and spilled beer bottles. But more than anything, it's the blurry memories of the night before and waking up next to someone outrageously hot.
Peach Kelli Pop
Peach Kelli Pop
Peach Kelli Pop originated when Allie Hanlon, originally a drummer, decided to try writing and recording songs in Ottawa, Canada in 2009. Hanlon started out writing not for an audience but for herself. The intimate quality of her bedroom recordings have been maintained to this day. On first listen one will hear high-pitched harmonies and thick layers of trebly guitars but just below the surface lays an evocative darker side to the music that often goes unnoticed.
Peach Kelli Pop is known for her catchy and tongue-in-cheek songs inspired by video games, Chinese food and conspiracy theorists, illustrating not only her playfulness but also her wit and her angst. Hanlon also grapples with more serious topics like the pressures and challenges women face and the weight of love. Some songs feature the sounds and words of frustrated heartache and recognizable sorrows. Those that spend enough time with Hanlon's music will grasp its depth –both musically and emotionally.
Peach Kelli Pop plays with the type of urgency and immediacy that appeals to an audience with short attention spans. Hanlon fronts Peach Kelli Pop's energetic live shows on guitar and vocals and is backed by an assembly of female musicians. The live band consists of an additional guitarist, a bassist, a keyboardist and percussionist and a drummer. Hanlon has been playing with all female musicians in recent years because she recalls being inspired by seeing other women play shows as a teen. In the male-dominated music world, it affirmed her own potential for writing and playing music.
Peach Kelli Pop has their third full length record being released this April on Fullerton, CA label Burger Records. They are doing month long tour of the United States and Canada and a tour in Japan in support of the new album.

"Hanlon's voice: sweet yet detached like the fading flavor of a watermelon Jolly Rancher long crunched and swallowed" -Pitchfork.com

"Miminalist bubblegum/pre-Chysalis Blondie/Japanese cartoon pop/zero-grit sandpaper punk perfection! This White Wires side project (though this joy bop music is more of a mutiny than a side project by comparison to WW's garage purity), PKP is more thrilling than PCP!"
-Roctober.com

"Like a lollipop caught in a lint filter, Peach Kelli Pop nestles sticky sweetness beneath layers of cottony fuzz" -WonderingSound.com

"PKP sounds like a thrice-dubbed Archies cassette stuck in fast-forward, or, perhaps, the Chipmunks fronting Nobunny." -FFWDWeekly.com

"PKP has the gleam and cheerfulness of boldly feminine '60s girl groups and is suited for any listener with a short attention span: She fits a good amount of melody into a relatively short amount of time" -ConsequenceofSound.net

"Best lo-fi punk popper going now! White Wires drummer, too! NICE!"

Billy Changer
Billy Changer
Billy Changer is the bassist of the very formidable Corners, as well as an Echo Park engineer and now the very solo artist behind a just-out self-titled LP on Lolipop that’s part experiment, part self-expression and part shot in the dark—or maybe it’s more a flare fired into the sky in hopes of help or at least shining light on things for a second. It’s lo-fi in a careful way and it’s a home recording that doesn’t sound like it ever had a home, and Changer played every part of it himself. The album art and that photo right there both transmit the mood in a moment: the human alone on the streets of the city they live in, looking back at you while you look back at them. Changer’s album is introspective and reflective in a way that perfectly serves the closeness of a recording like this—when it’s done playing, you might feel like someone just left the room. – Chris Ziegler (LA Record)
The Creation Factory
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.
Samiras Infinite Summer
