The Committee To Keep Music Evil Kicks Off Levitation Festival

The Committee To Keep Music Evil Kicks Off Levitation Festival


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Tonight in Austin, the town gets taken over in pre-party mode before the big kahuna event that is the Levitation Festival. In what has become a fine psychedelic tradition, The Committee To Keep Music Evil is proud to present one of these events at Barracuda's Inside Stage. Kicking off at 5pm local time, headliners Mystic Braves will come on well past midnight with the concert to end at 2am. They will be preceded by pioneering soul-shoegaze outfit The Veldt, as well as Floorian, Sugar Candy Mountain, and the Turns!

Mystic Braves - Los Angeles based psychedelic quintet signed to Lollipop Records. New album "Days of Yesteryear" out now in multiple formats. Comprised of Julian Ducatenzeiler (guitar & vocals), Tony Malacara (bass & vocals), Shane Stotsenberg (guitar & vocals), Cameron Gartung (drums), and Ignacio Gonzalez (organ/tambourine). Currently on a national tour in support of this album, which you can catch here https://mysticbraves.bandcamp.com

The Veldt - Hailing from North Carolina and based out of NYC, pioneering twins Daniel and Danny Chavis successfully broke the 'black music' mould by fusing shoegaze, alternative rock and soul music in a mindblowing concoction that has landed them on 3 majors and production by such legendary artists as Robin Guthrie (Cocteau Twins), A.R. Kane and Ray Shulman (Bjork, The Sundays). They've just released their EP 'The Shocking Fuzz of Your Electric Fur', streamable here https://theveldtmusic.bandcamp.com

Floorian - Based in Columbus, Ohio, Floorian have been traveling the musical cosmos since 1997, exploring the realms of psychedelia, space-rock and experimental music with a vision of creating a unique style of darkly melodic, guitar-based drone-rock. In 2003 Floorian caught the ears of legendary Bomp Records guru Greg Shaw and Brian Jonestown Massacre founder Anton Newcombe. The band’s music has been hailed by fans and critics alike, but the real essence of Floorian is best experienced through their multi-sensory live shows, combining hypnotic visuals with boundless sound. www.floorian.com

Sugar Candy Mountain - Described as "f Brian Wilson had dropped acid on the beach in Brazil and decided to record an album with Os Mutantes and The Flaming Lips, it would sound like this", this Beach Boys & Kinks-inspired quartet is comprised of Ash Reiter (vocals/guitar), Will Halsey (vocals/drums), Bryant Denison (guitar), and Matt Adams (Bass). Find them here www.sugarcandymountainband.com

The Turns - The Turns are a psychedelic rock and R&B band from Los Angeles, California. The group consists of songwriter Michael Eng (vocals, guitar), Danny Winebarger (vocals, guitar), Jonathan Baron (keyboard, guitar), Marco Cortes (bass) and Johnny Toomey (drums). Their sound incorporates West Coast experimental pop, US & UK psych, soul, R&B, and American folk. More info can be found at https://theturns.tv

The Committee To Keep Music Evil formed in 2001 after the Brian Jonestown Massacre's 'Strung Out In Heaven' tenure with TVT records expired. In conjunction with Greg Shaw and Bomp! Records, founder Anton Newcombe felt he needed to beat The Man at his own game. The Plan was to release BJM music not available through other channels, and to record new bands which we will be producing from time to time—while pursuing the goal of making the world unsafe for rock and roll, releasing BJM albums and releases from artists Floorian, The Lovetones and The Telescopes.

In 2007, the Committee formed a partnership with Cargo Records in the UK, focused on re-releasing the entire BJM catalog on vinyl and expanded the catalog by bringing in new artists, including The Quarter After and The Asteroid #4. In 2011, when Anton stepped aside to launch his new Berlin-based imprint 'A Records', he left the helm to Quarter After / BJM musician, producer & engineer Rob Campanella (Los Angeles), opening the doors to other artists offering psychedelic-tinged music and becoming the home base for all things psychedelic.

Barracuda is also hosting a second outdoor stage, sponsored by Burger Records and featuring Quintron & Miss Pussycat, Coathangers, Leviation Room, and Death Valley Girls. Two other pre-parties for the Levitation Festival are being held (see below for further information). Music on the outside stages at the Mohawk and Empire Garage venues ends at 11pm.
