Mystic Braves, The Creation Factory, Kingdom of the Holy Sun

    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

    Psychedelic

    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.

    Kingdom of the Holy Sun

    Pop

    Formed in early 2012 in Seattle, WA, Kingdom of the Holy Sun offers their twist on psychedelia , by drawing on such genres as the melodic and fuzzed out sounds of garage rock from the 60’s, meditative drones and instrumentation from the Indian Sub-continent, as well as the more recent sounds of neo- psychedelia. These influences form touchstones they use to explore new sonic landscapes. Their psychedelic sound ranges from the repetitive beats of the Monks (A Go Go) to The Doors inspired gems (Her sweet delight) to hypnotic drones of Spacemen 3 (Pharmacokinetics). Live shows often include colorful visuals and liquid light show. In addition, their sound has been compared The Velvet Underground, Brian Jonestown Massacre and The Black Angels.
