San Diego, CA
THE RUMBLE: SAN DIEGO - JULY 9TH @ BAR PINK
Featuring Mrs Magician, Luke Rathborne, Colony + DJ Rob Dylan - FREE!
Gloomy surf pop with a pitch-perfect dose of woozy 60s doo-wop that has us swaying. Their The Spells 7" (Loud & Clear Records) dropped in March with the hypnotic and enchanting,"Angel Baby." This quartet take classic tales of heartache and drench it in enough indie reverb to craft modern AM ready indie pop.
"I guess what I like most about San Diego’s Mrs. Magician is that they remind me of those great AM radio days, sifted through a modern fuzzy lens of the blog rock." - Some Velvet Blog
LUKE RATHBORNE just released his I Can Be One/Dog Years Split EP (Dilettante Recordings) this past Spring to much acclaim and everyone from NYLON to Paste is responding to his gentle Leonard Cohe- esque sound. At only 23, Rathborne weaves a tapestry of influences with freshness that takes this singer/songwriter beyond the standard indie pop fare.
"With his soulful lyrics and brooding aesthetic, this emerging musician has perfected the delicate art of dark pop." - NYLON
Super sludgey shoegaze ala Sonic Youth met with 80s influenced synths reminiscent of Joy Division and The Cure, this four piece, led by Danny Brown, are fresh off their mini West Coast tour with Primitive Noyes. Formed in 2010, COLONY take thrashing garage rock and inject it with enough psych pop flourishes to create their answer to art rock. Think Explosions in the Sky, but bigger and louder.
DJs Pet Rock and Rob Dylan will be spinning all night!
