Dead Meadow, Sweet Apple (with J. Mascis)

Dead Meadow's unique marriage of Sabbath riffs, dreamy layers of guitars fuzz bliss, and singer Jason Simon's high-pitched melodic croon have wond over both psychedelic pop/rock and stoner-rock fans alike. Although the band's members met while attending all-ages punk shows in and around Washington D.C.'s punk/indie scene, the trio's sound draws more of their sound from such classic rock legends as Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath. The trio formed in the fall of 1998 out the ashes of local indie rock bands The Impossible Five and Coulour by singer-guitarist Jason Simon, bassist Steve Kille, and drummer Mark Laughlin. The three members set out to fuse their love of early 70's hard rock and 60's psychedelia with their love of fantasy and horror writers J.R.R. Tolkien and H.P. Lovecraft. ~ Rick Kutner, All Music Guide

Sweet Apple (with J. Mascis)

Featuring J. Mascis (of Dinosaur Jr), Tim Parnin, John Petkovic, and Dave Sweetapple

Most bands are brought together by guitars, amps and drums. Sweet Apple formed after tragedy, out of friendship, on a miserable day in Vermont. At first glance, the rock ‘n’ roll quartet might seem like one of those "indie-rock supergroup" sideshows. (editor's note: "stupor group"?)

The Carrions

"Rising like a reborn crow from the carcass of Los Angeles-based TSK TSK, The Carrions play a brand of music they've dubbed Psychedelic Love Metal. Guitarist Cheryl Lindsey, who the LA Weekly heralded as "One of LA's Best," has been doing time for the past three or so years as touring guitarist for the Breeders, while both Cheryl and bassist Sean Agopian have performed in Exene Cervenka's band, debuting songs from her soon to be released album. Joined by explosive drummer Steve DeLuca, the band has been holed up in a Downtown Los Angeles warehouse recording their debut album which promises to blow minds. Check out their latest video "Sunshine Everyday" which was filmed earlier this year in the Salton Sea."
