→ ONE UNIQUE SIGNAL
(krautrock psyche / UK)

Crée en 2002 sur les cendres du projet expérimental drone tremolo Windomn Chikkaarah, One Unique Signal ont sculpté leur son unique à base de space-kraut post-drone noise-core. Sur scène le groupe mélange l’ancien et le neuf pour créer un voyage hypnotique entre psychédélisme, noise et rock stoner.
Leur second album Aether est sorti chez Genepool en 2013.

→ ANCIENT RIVER
(noir psychedelism / USA)

Sorte de Space Opera entre ambiant shoegaze et rock indé, Ancient River c’est une sorte de BRMC plongé dans la brume d’un été du milieu des années 70. Le duo guitare/batterie américain mélange les guitares saturées et les voix noyées dans la reverb’, le tout soutenu par une rythmique brutale et imperturbable.

→ BLURRY MOUTAIN
(psychedelic fuzz / Paris)

Blurry Mountain est partisan d’un rock’n’roll brut et radical. Alternant murs de distorsion foudroyants et passages chantés beaucoup plus calmes, le groupe puise ses influences principales dans les atmosphères vaporeuses de groupes tels que Dead Meadow, Blue Angel Lounge ou encore Sonic Youth. Les guitares hurlent, les batteries sont lourdes, les ondes de basses caverneuses et les chants possédés. Assister à un concert de Blurry Mountain, c’est ressentir l’excitation de se prendre un 35 tonnes lancé à pleine vitesse dans la gueule.

Sun Dog -  Albuquerque, New Mexico

They have already recorded new material for a special 12" Split with local friends, YOU, and come October, Sun Dog and YOU will embark on a national tour to promote the Split.

Sun Dog's 18 months together and efforts in and around New Mexico have paid off greatly, earning support slots for the likes of Thee Oh Sees, Cosmonauts, Moving Units, The Myrrors, Corners, Tele Novella, Burning Palms, Terror Pigeon, The Sloths, No Parents, Genders, WEED, St. Ranger, and Brenda Carsey and the AWE...

The Valley Bar // $10 // 8pm

The Myrrors - Tucson, AZ
https://themyrrors.bandcamp.com/
The Myrrors formed back when they were still in high school.They didn't have any musical experiences and decided to have a band and an amazing thing happened. The band self released an album and posted songs on Youtube, were they have almost half a million hits!! Certainly, there’s something mysterious about the band’s first album, “Burning Circles in the Sky,” given that it was recorded “sometime in 2008” (as stated by The Myrrors themselves), but only saw release late in 2013. And there’s something mysterious about the constant hum of activity that has defined the band in the months since “Burning Circles” was released – a hum that includes adding two more releases to their fast-growing catalog, along with an invitation to appear at “Levitation,” the 2015 incarnation of Austin Psych Fest.

Sunn Trio - A local avant-garde jazz influenced group.

[EVENT] 10 JULY 2015 // SUMMER MOON & CO. AND PORTLAND PSYCH FEST PRESENT ANCIENT RIVER + IS/IS + THE VERNON PANTONS + KINGDOM OF THE HOLY SUN // DANTE'S // PORTLAND, OREGON


“Hearing Ancient River‘s lush, expansive sound, it’s hard to imagine that it’s just two guys. Starting out as the bedroom brainchild of lead singer James Barreto, the Gainesville duo are getting ready to release their newest album Keeper of the Dawn. Taking cues from contemporaries like Temples and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, new single “This Is The Time” finds the duo in a magical haze. Washed-out drums and fuzz pedals do the trick, but the ringing reverb on Barreto’s rhythm guitar really gives the song shape.”
SPIN Magazine 
“...Ancient River serves a delightful mind fuck with This Is The Time! Like a bit heavier and dirtier personality of Tame Impala’s eerie fuzziness, this reverb obsessed duo enslaves with its captivating songwriting all the mystical and hazy psychedelics in a startling kaleidoscopic frame!"
SOUND INJECTION

IS/IS (now called Candice) - Portland, OR
www.facebook.com/candaceisaband

'At times Is/Is can sound like a lost gem from the Creation hey-day, infusing their music with a sense of mystery and brooding atmosphere. Psychedelic and shoegaze influences emerge throughout the catalogue: the atmospheric tones of early Verve, a droning pulse reminiscent of Loop. Some songs bounce gleefully forward with a pop sensibility, while some keep a cool distance and move with a language distinctly their own. This is Is/Is’ strength: not simply a sum of their influences, but to put that ineffable “wizard-rock” quality on their music.'

SOUND INJECTION

VERMA (CHICAGO, IL) 
https://verma.bandcamp.com/
Bent equally on bristling psychedelic squall and driving motorik, Verma emerged in the wake of an experimental improvisational collective. Blending a wide range of influences from proto-metal, minimalism, electronic, space rock and drone, the group constructs and explores cinematic sonic landscapes. Verma is amoebic in nature, coexisting with the mechanical. The driving rhythm section creates a solid architecture for swirling guitars and haunting vocal melodies, all beneath a haze of sweeping synthesizers. This repetitive dervish of sound rises from dark roots to a meditative plane, at once the atmosphere of metamorphosis and cerebral introspection. 


DEAD FEATHERS (CHICAGO, IL) TX)
https://deadfeathersmusic.bandcamp.com/
Ascend yourself into the blanketing incense smoke and celestial grooves that is Dead Feathers. Like the Night sky, this band is noting below a breath of fresh air. With melodic female Vocals and the Fuzz driven riffs you might as well be seeing the fortune teller herself when you see this band live. This band takes hold of you and does not let you go. Dead Feathers has shared the stage with countless Chicago bands and touring bands from all over North America alike. A group heavily influenced by rock bands of the 60's and 70's and the underground Psychedelic bands of today, They are currently in the process of recording their first full length albbum and playing in venues across Chicago.


THE RED PLASTIC BUDDHA (CHICAGO, IL) 
https://redplasticbuddha.bandcamp.com/
Formed in late 2005, Chicago's Red Plastic Buddha developed a sound that blends the best elements of late 60s British psychedelia with modern dynamics, alternating between swirling sonic landscapes and catchy, melody driven pop. 

The Red Plastic Buddha draw frequent comparisons to Barrett-era Pink Floyd, 13th Floor Elevators and Love, as well as neo-psychedelic masters Brian Jonestown Massacre, Dandy Warhols and The Warlocks. Live, the RPB enhance their recorded sound with a post-punk energy and their infrequent live shows have become eagerly anticipated events.
