Wet Tuna
Matt Valentine and Pat Gubler’s pedal-heavy guitars morph from acoustica to electrica, they have consolidated their concerns into a hazy, burbling, reverberant and arcane nod to the rhizomic legacies of the Grateful Dead (blink and miss their minute-long “Space and Drums”), Hot Tuna and such.

Garcia Peoples
Garcia Peoples
Top down, tunes up and cruising out of the Jersey suburbs into yr heart are Garcia Peoples and their debut LP “Cosmic Cash” on Beyond Beyond is Beyond. Originally a quartet (Tom Malach and Danny Arakaki on guitars, Cesar Arakaki on drums, Derek Spaldo on bass) but recently beefed up into a five-piece with PG Six (Tower Recordings, Wet Tuna) on keys, Garcia Peoples are just what our little psychedelic corner of the world needs right now…fun.

“Cosmic Cash” effortlessly heaves joy. The low-key vocal hooks and melodies snag you quickly and don’t let go, not unlike mid-period NRBQ but loaded up on youthful longing and hallucinogens rather than RC Cola and Moon Pies.

And then there are the jams, oh the jams! More reined in than recent live action, “Cosmic Cash” delivers sparkling twin leads, barreling keys and bubbling rhythms recalling the Dead’s tightest, most simple studio work, the Allmans’ most radio-friendly moments and the Band’s early 70s output.

– Jeff Conklin (WFMU)
Elkhorn is a folk/psych-rock guitar duo from New York, New York featuring Jesse Sheppard on twelve-string acoustic and Drew Gardner on electric. This music interweaves the extended folk tradition with psychedelic improvisation.
