A fresh mixture of what could be considered a hybrid of Flying Lotus and Grizzly Bear, Berkeley-based band, Art Nikels, is about to release their debut EP, Primitives, on Peach Fuzz Recordings. Tuning a formless blend of psych-rock that holds a firm electronic foundation at its core, the band hones in a particular sound on this EP that feels like a passing cloud on a nice warm day.
Plain and simple, the EP is one of those musical efforts encompassing a wide-range of notable influences that take from psychedelic, trip-hop, ambient, and alternative rock fundamentals. The group have definitely done their homework and add a strong edge of originality to the whole thing.
