Triangulum is the new EP out by Sunrise and Ammunition and we are psyched for the Psychedelic Rock aspect of this album! Sunrise and Ammunition have many elements floating around their primordial soup in a young world of sound. It is a sound that has lineage tracing back to progressive, experimental, and psychedelic music of all kinds. With no rigid boundaries it’s a collective of porous minds, absorbing an eclectic sound pallet made accessible to kids of the internet age. The band formed just after its members finished intermediate school, and over the years they have developed a musical chemistry that borders on telepathy. Sunrise and Ammunition released their first EP, Aquarius, in 2010 and have focused on creating immersive sounds ever since, including their album, Tesseract, produced by Jesse Cannon at Found Soundation. The combination of these three childhood friends’ creativity creates a whole larger than the sum of its parts.
“We like to explore sounds and moods, so people may connect to each song in a different way or they may like one that resonates with them most. We see writing songs as building worlds with their own unique mood and archi-texture!”
Their opening song, “Movers” pushes the boundaries of ear candy and sends your brain on a rollercoaster of highs and lows that makes me feel like I should be some kind of high. “Luca” is a bit more commercial with flows of EDM and mixed with mariachi feels. “Vulcan Dome” is dark and edgy with heavy electric guitars and drums. Finally, “Mt. Fuji” is reminiscent of an old Beatles tune mixed exquisite harmonies over flowing rhythms.
This progressive rock band is taking over the new age market and we are excited to see what comes next!
Atlas Jungle have been making a phenomenal impression on music listeners this Summer, and things are about to heat up even more. The group, who release their debut record From the Dirt today, are playing an exclusive album release show tomorrow night, at Stella Blues in New Haven, CT.
Their electrifying, and rather mystifying sounds and light show will take to the stage for this very special evening. The group bends genres, mixing in driven funk, tribal house, psychedelic rock, trance, and blues that uses instruments to create music and light shows simultaneously. Entire churches, libraries, and custom installations have all been used for their lights shows as seen in their music videos, which will entice your eyes as well as your ears. Information is below, and be sure to check out their latest video for “Goa Nights.” Trust me, you’ll be a fan.
JungleAtlas Album Release Party

At a time when it is challenging to seek out bands hailing from regions outside of the musical mecca of NYC, Oklahoma-based group Psychotic Reaction bring forward progressive and mind-numbing sounds. The band crosses the traditional barriers of garage rock and psychedelic tunes and reintroduces subcultural drones of Lou Reed and the Stooges. While their instruments aggregate a concoction of multi-layered guitar snarls, the group constructs a type of narcotic energy that makes the listeners believe and remember the power of rock and roll.
