TONIGHT: Electric Flower Group in-store 7pm

Tooooonighttttt ~~~ We've got a free in-store with the Electric Flower Group! The show is in celebration of their new release - EP II, which is out now on Narnack Records. The duo consists of Los Angeles locals, Imaad Wasif (guitar/vox) and Josh Garza (drums) pertaining to a style best described as "part motorik and part psychedelic." Electric Flower Group are on a journey through a modern kaleidoscope of rock 'n' roll, transcending mainstream influence and incorporating strong minimalist elements into their modern psychedelic music.  In Garza’s pummeling beats and Wasif’s vocal and guitar exorcisms, we are not listening to just two men, but to an orchestra of the damned.  EFG wakes the ghosts of rock's most daring days, while never following them.

The second EP from Electric Flower Group finds the visceral realist duo expanding their sound beyond the rawness of their first EP to explore the dimensions of depth and width. This EP is proof that music today can be Cinematic and Conceptual without the complications of Over-Instrumentation as demonstrated within the Modern Overarching Epic. Conversely, it moves against the wake of new-fangled blues stomp rock and the limits of its obligatory two-piece bands.  Side two of the EP is dedicated to a cover of Scott Walker’s dark symphonic ode to S&M, “The Electrician,” done to such effect that it cuts to the core of the original, its primitive brightness reaching far out into other corner.

Well there you have it. See you tonight at 7pm!
