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.

Based in Echo Park, Los Angeles—home of a white-hot garage band revival of which the Braves are at the forefront—this five-piece musical sensation started out as a hobby, but for the musicians involved has become much more.

When the band isn't selling out shows across the state, playing alongside legendary bands like The Zombies or providing the soundtrack for can't-miss fashion events like Saint Laurent Paris' Spring-Summer 2015 collection, it's holed up in an L.A. studio recording its third album and plotting a series of tours that will take its intoxicating brand of psych-pop across the country and the world.

And 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 describes as a "a blend of influence and sound that is unprecedented in contemporary music," there are certainly some changes afoot.

"These new songs are along the same lines as what we've been doing, but we've elevated the songwriting," Ducatenzeiler says. "We've always been a pop-structured psych band and we're continuing along those lines, but we're trying some new things out as well."

Indeed, the group is experimenting with more exotic instruments on
this album such as a Mellotron keyboard, sitar, etc., 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, Desert Days and the Austin Psych Fest as well as a can't-miss Saturday night show at the legendary West Hollywood rock club The Troubadour on June 13.

It's quite a long way from how the group began. "We had no idea when we started that we'd come as far as we have," Ducatenzeiler says. "But from the moment we put our demos online, people were responding to them."

It was the song "Trippin' Like I Do"—and the charmingly beachy video that accompanied it—released in 2013, that first got the band noticed.
It also didn't hurt that the Echo Park studio the band used would become home to the influential indie label Lolipop Records. Mystic Braves were the first band recorded at Lolipop, and out of this collaboration, a psych pop revival was created.

Since those early days, Mystic Braves have gone on to release two full-length records—both recorded at Lolipop—and a single and have played extensively to ever-increasing crowds in Southern California and beyond. And that goodwill their first songs garnered has never gone away.

"That was a good sign that this was all going somewhere,"

Ducatenzeiler says, "And that playing in this band is definitely what we need to be doing."
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 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!"

Psychomagic

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 founded by Shane Stots of The Mystic Braves out of Los Angeles, Ca. The Sounds of Acid Garage & Psychedelic-Pop (Lolipop Records).
