MYSTIC BRAVES return to the Empty Bottle after headlining here last September, and we are oh-so-ready for these spicy garage rockers. Althought the band might be rooted in the psychedelic scene of the 1960s, theirmoment is happening right now. The Los Angeles band, based in Echo Park, are at the forefront of a white-hot garage band revival. When the band isn’t selling out shows across the country, they’re playing alongside legendary groups like THE ZOMBIES or providing the soundtrack for can’t-miss fashion events like Saint Laurent Paris’ Spring-Summer 2015 collection. While MYSTIC BRAVES— 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” on the forthcoming album, there are certainly changes afoot.
THE CREATION FACTORY channels the sounds of 1960s psychedelic beats, but 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 L.A. rock group the MYSTIC BRAVES, says—and he's not kidding. The group uses authentic 1960s gear (and an era-appropriate look) to create blues-inflected rock designed to get a crowd's feet moving.
Local five-piece PEACH FUZZ has been stirring shit up around town, serving that good ol' Rock & Roll with two capital Rs. The kids are going nutty for their organ-drenched tunes that are catchier-than-the-plague and they've got that fresh EP that's ripe for you to pick off the record tree on your way out. Just make sure you ask Cam to sign it.
