My friend Steven Scott who works at my favorite LA breakfast spot, The Mustard Seed Cafe, gave me a copy of his band’s demo CD. The band is called AFTERNOONS and their music is very symphonic, uplifting, indie rock in the vein of the Polyphonic Spree or newer Flaming Lips. The standout track is called “Say Yes” and I was so inspired by it that I decided to make a poster for the band to put up on the street, and a few to sell to recoup printing costs. The edition is only 150. The prints will go on sale Monday, 6/9. There is a myspace link below if you’d like to hear them. After I played the song for Steve Jones, he immediately put it on Jonesy’s Jukebox.
Here is what Steven Scott has to say about his band:
“With two drummers, a trumpet, and a classically trained opera singer, local rock band AFTERNOONS sounds more like a train robbery, or circus revolution than your ordinary rock outfit. You can catch their music being played on INDIE 103 and KCRW, or see them live as they play every Monday night in June at Spaceland (1717 Silverlake blvd, FREE!!)”.
