"... the trio produces agile and fuzz-laden psych jams that veer into deeply heady territories, including everything from prog and acid rock to funk and downbeat."

Taking drugs to make beats to take drugs to.

San Francisco-based producer Al Lover has spent the last several years evolving a unique approach to electronic and psychedelic music by way of exploring the common threads within it’s various genres. From the 2011 Garage tinged project Distorted Reverberations - where he remixed bands such as Thee Oh Sees and Night Beats - to his more recent exploration of Synthesized Kraut, Ambient and Dub, Zodiak Versions, Al continues to explore the fringes of Psychedelic music and draw parallels where others might get lost.
Often compared to acts like Sun Araw and Gaslamp Killer, Al draws from the past and connects it to the future with the use of samples, drum machines, live instrumentation, analog synthesizers, effects and Ableton Live. Lover has been busy the last 3 years releasing 5 LPs, collaborating with artists such as Goat, Anton Newcombe, White Fence and Lumerians all while touring Europe extensively and working with Levitation Austin as their official DJ.

After releasing a double album debut in 2016, Mineral Mountain (One) and (Two), Crispin Wah will finally be translating their self-described ‘shred gaze’ sound into live performances. With a hard-to-pin-down aesthetic, the live renditions of their heavy guitar loop instrumentals will likely add another level of psychedelic haze to it all. Using a myriad of pedals, guitarist Se’nam Palmer and Monochrome Sweatsuit orchestrate guitar riffs that sound synthesized. The perils of prog are dashed away into the spacious robotics of a loop by the addition of the production and percussion of Bruther Brown and King Fractal, with keyboardist Loud Loyd adding the final texture.
