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.

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.

Since the 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 the goodwill that their first songs garnered has never gone away.
The Creation Factory
The Creation Factory
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.
The Pesos
The Pesos
The Pesos started out in the sunshine of Southern California in the balmy summer of 2013. After an inspirational jaunt to the hilly country of Austin, Texas, they returned to the west coast emboldened with a southern twang that enhanced the surf vibes they had been playing up and down the California coast. Accompanying the likes of the Growlers, Allah-las, and the legendary Ronnie Spector, the Pesos endeavor to embody the spirits of their influences – that of Maurice Deebank, San Onofre and the Velvet Underground. The Pesos are Yaan Pessino, Joey Bonano, Brendan Sepe, Devon Rogers, Avery Chandler.
