Happy to take influence from grey skies & early sci-fi novels, Portland’s Wooden Indian Burial Ground brings a fuzzy, sweaty, reverb drenched beast to the dinner table. Come dancing.
Jon Parales of the New York Times recently described WIBG as “particularly molten…riding riffs towards euphoric dementia.”
Bob Boilen of NPR’s All Songs Considered chose WIBG as one of his top discoveries of CMJ 2012, stating “WIBG are the rare breed of psychedelic garage music that rises above the mediocrity of most bands making this sort of music these days and gets me remembering why I’ve loved this kind of music for so long.”
Brandon Wurtz and Shannon Dean formed Jesus Sons in a motorcycle garage in San Francisco, CA in 2011. They quickly started making music together and brought in Rob Good and Ian McBrayer of Warm Soda and cut a full length LP at Fuzz City in Oakland, CA. The self-titled LP incorporated their love for artists such as The Velvet Underground, The Rolling Stones, and Bo Diddley and was cut to tape using only a Tascam 388, their vintage Silvertone amps, and Japanese guitars to create a natural organic late 60’s early 70’s garage rock sound. Brandon Wurtz and Shannon Dean later moved to Los Angeles, CA in 2013 and picked up a new round of musicians to play in the band. Chance Welton, Bert Hoover, and Erik Lake joined them and have continued to bring people the perfect blend of blues, country, and garage rock in Los Angeles, CA. Jesus Sons will be on tour this upcoming year in support of their debut LP and 7” on Mock Records
In early 2010, Holland Andrews began a solo project behind the alias of Like a Villain. She pulls her influences from notable minimalist composers such as Arvo Pärt, contemporary vocalists including Diamanda Galás, and modern experimental musicians like Björk, and she is heavily influenced by Broadway and opera music.
By creating a tapestry of live loops using her voice, clarinet, and glockenspiel, her aim is to emphasize the roots of organic sounds and create an emotional realm of sonic healing and magic.
