mothdrops describes their music as “echo park indie-kraut-psych-post-garage-glam-gaze.” In their debut single release it is easy to see all of these dimensions to their music. Consisting of two tracks from an upcoming EP, “veal fiction//sexi maharishi” is as pure as art can get. What I mean by this is that the group (formed by my fellow UCLA Ethnomusicology classmate Jaiq Styne and his pals Andrew Giurgiun, Brendan Snyder, Keveen Baudouin, Shane Graham) is constantly exploring the realms of multi-genre, heavily improvisation-based music. It’s like a manic jazz, psychedelic, indie and punk fantasy.
And it’s fucking awesome.
Check it out for yourself.
