Watch & Listen
Heavily influenced by pop, psych, surf, and folk-rock of the sixties, Cool Ghouls sound a lot like what I imagine the Byrds would sound like if they always cranked it to 11. They write catchy melodies, but their tight harmonies sung at the top of their lungs are highlights for me. Throw in a little lo-fi production, and you have some material that is meant to be played loud with a smile on your face.
-Russell Jelinek, The Bay Bridged
The sonic clouds above Wyatt Blair's song writting are wrapped in a bright orange wool blanket of shrinking guitar haze. He plucks and burns at his defensively crucial crossroads, then merrily shrugs goodbye to us while we approach each song's conclusion. A tasteful triumph to book end his anthems of love and mystery in unsung bleeding wrist scabs. His science is alarmingly innocent from track to track, each one allowing itself the ability to guiltlessly discern Mr. Blair's desires for affection. Desires that prove time and time again deserve unrattling.Wyatt Blair is a blessing and a curse. He's a man and a myth in the dramatically and hopelessly Shakespearian sense. A songwriter whose voice deserves to be famed. Whose twinkling veins are due for their close up. Who should be sung by farmers and car washes and gold fish. By anyone with lips and a chest cavity.
Rock N Roll.
"Garage rock in the purest form that makes you want to go out and cause a little trouble. 'Sometimes' had me wanting to throw on my leather jacket and step out into the dark night, ready for any adventure that may be lurking in the alleys. This is the stuff your mother warned you about. Embrace it."

DJ Al Lover
In short, Al Lover is a producer from San Francisco, but there's more layers to his wall of sound then meets the ear. Over the last few years he has gained much notoriety for his melding of contemporary and past garage and psychedelic rock into harsh yet spacey abrasive beats. Influenced as much by The 13th Floor Elevators as DJ Shadow, Al Combines crunchy drums, shaky percussion, chopped samples and layers of textured effects to create an unexplored path for psychedelic music, offering an earthy and loose approach that sounds more like you're listening to a DMT fueled psych band than a beat made on an MPC.
