    Punk


    More than a few rumors have been circling about the members of Los Angeles punk band ‘No Parents’. Among them:

    Frontman Zoë Reign is the only living member of the long extinct human subspecies, homo erectus. His cave-tatted and zaftig body was found perfectly preserved within a gigantic slab of dank resin, excavated from a North Hollywood backyard by a pair of teenaged twins, whom, in the throes of a Blue Dream-edible-induced bad trip, had become convinced that the ghost of G.G. Allin would haunt their local sesh spot were they not to unearth a mysterious object from behind their uncle’s ranch house.
    Bassist Killian LeDuke is both blessed and cursed by his possession of a rare Poon-Slayer’s Statuette, which in appearance is not far off from the Venus of {look up}, but unlike that ancient artifact, is said to faintly emit the chorus of the Stooges’ “T.V. Eye”, a tune which grows louder if the object comes within the presence of a particularly bodacious babe. Accounts conflict on the actual psychophysical effects of the totem– make your own call if you ever come within 5-10 feet of Mr. LeDuke.
    Guitarist Ryan McGuffin learned how to play his scintillating riffs from a group of hyperintelligent Fender-wielding crustaceans. One day while surfing Leo Carrillo during a super gnarly swell, he was pulled under (after getting way too pitted in a tube of opaque Pacific trash-water.) Rendered unconscious by a critical case of board-to-dome, he would have certainly perished beneath the waves had he not been furnished with scuba gear by the aforementioned rock lobsters. Somewhere along the line, the rumor goes, they taught him how to shred, but the details here are fuzzy, as it remains unclear how these clawed creatures could pluck a guitar string without snapping it, not to mention how an amp could function underwater.
    Monty, the drummer, is an alien.

    –––

    Interesting as these rumors may be, their veracity is far beside the point. No Parents play rock and roll music and they play it well. Oh fuck yes they do.

    Psychedelic

     Ttotals have waited for the rest of the world to catch up. Psychedelic music is finally lurching towards a lasting place in popular culture. The word “psychedelic” itself may take on various meanings depending on who you’re talking to, and may even take its fair share of abuse - yet it has persisted.

        Based in Nashville, Ttotals have been stoically ensuring that the genre remains relevant in Music City going on several years. Founded in 2009 by Brian Miles, a Nashville - native, Ttotals have employed an ever shifting cast of exceptional musicians in their eight years as a band. Their latest release, We Are the Outer Blues, sees newcomers Dylan Frost and Austin Edwards rounding out the Ttotals lineup alongside Miles, as well as making their first contributions to Ttotals’ catalog.      Conceived out of a desire to bring avant garde principles to psychedelic music, Ttotals’ newest release continues to bring that original idea closer to reality. Over four songs, the trio establishes a sound that honors a lineage established by 13 Floor Elevators and continued later by Spaceman 3 without forgetting that Ttotals exists in the present. The songs themselves are driving and meditative, with riffs that become like chants, often expanding their presence over the entirety of the song.

    “Ttotals is a celebration of repetition and reflection. We want it to be an introspective experience for listeners."

    We Are the Outer Blues follows Ttotals’ 2014 full-length, Let Everything Come Through, which Psychedelic Baby Mag called, “an absolute trip in the outer stratosphere of consciousness.” We Are the Outer Blues pursues that description as a mantra, establishing a sound that will continue to be explored on future releases.“We Are the Outer Blues is a continuation of a sound we’ve been mining and developing for years,” Miles said. “We hope our listeners will see the lineage of psychedelic music carried forward in our own music.”
