The Casbah, San Diego, CA

Rock music with an afro-beat style. The band’s perpetual grooves are deeper than ever. The horns are set ablaze and analog synths beam an electrified energy into the music. The homemade percussion arsenal is ramped up a notch, and the electric sawblade gamelan brings gong-like overtones into the tangled vine of synthetic and organic strands. The band taps into its full orchestral potential—the arrangements are filled with timbral variety, as the bubbling textures of the percussion meld with the soaring sounds of the horn section.


Thao and the Get Down Stay Down
Indie rock band that sounds like "tangles of guitar, knots of singing, threads of beat and thump make a rope fit for hauling the heavy machinery of your day.”
