"No genre of music [i]s safe from getting 'licked up' by the tongue."

"[Acid Tongue] are putting out some amazing fuzz rock that is certain to catch the ear of any fan of Ty Segall or John Dwyer's lo-fi garage projects."

'New York-born, Los Angeles-based Warbly Jets are here to revive rock music from it's indisputable funk. The newly released track "Psychomanteum" takes you on a pleasant journey inside yourself and showcases what the band means when they say they're "coming for your ears, your money, your girlfriends, your faces." Flirtatious guitar riffs, buoyant drums, and introspective lyrics meet to create a raw and natural sound which is much needed in today's musical landscape. The highlight of the song for us is the slowed down, tripped out bridge which takes you down a well of echoey vocals and guitar. It's the perfect tempo to get your headbang or your hippie sway on, throw your lighter up, and get lost in a groove. Just when it feels like you're about to get completely submersed in the waters of your own mind forever, the Jets shoot you back out to the surface for some fresh air. Fuzzy guitars and bouncing drums lead the way for the final chorus, marching you back out into everyday life.' - WE THE BEAT
Fauna Shade is the music and sounds developed by frontman and Everett, Washington native Scotty Smith. Smith, now 21, combines psychedelia and pop sensibility from years spent experimenting, writing and recording tracks in his parents garage, located between the Puget Sound and Cascade Mountains. Joined live by drummer Richie Owen and bassist Derek Johnston, the band draws inspiration from early MGMT, Coco Rosie and T. Rex, while somehow forming a sound uncorrupted and free of pretense.

Their debut full length Baton Rouge, was recorded and co-produced by Jeff Southard at SWOON Studios (Night Beats, Tangerine) in Tacoma, Washington and released on April 18, 2015.

Consequence of Sound said it best; "Lead single "Marzipan" is a strange, swirling, wonderful example of what Smith is capable of. Guitars alternate between jaunty strolls of rippling reverb, feeling like rolling waves of drug-induced color. There's even a Floydian outro of zapping electronic wiggles. But the most fetching aspect of the track is Smith's voice itself. It's somewhere between T. Rex's Marc Bolan and WU LYF's Ellery James Roberts, part back-toothed growl, part heady vibrato. The captivating vocals are made even more intriguing by the lyrics about "a brief romantic encounter that [Smith] didn't want to end too soon": "What we had was nice / Mac and cheese, two spoons / Gone too soon."
