Alongside bandmate Janet Weiss, Sam Coomes has released nine albums with his band Quasi over the last two decades and toured all over the world. Concurrently, Sam Coomes has played and recorded with the likes of Built to Spill, Elliott Smith and Jandek, worked as a producer and scored numerous soundtracks for underground films and art installations. In short, he is not a newcomer to the scene.
Dr. Amazon is a 6 piece conceptual art band. John Henault, Mike Lastra, Amazon Bambi, Burned Mind, Ed Gibson, and Josh Mong play instruments including guitar, log, theramin, samples, toys, bass, drums, saxophone, and synthesizers. Vocals by Amy DeWolfe and Josh Mong. We perform original compositions based on improvisational patterns with timeless, dreamlike reverence.
Formed 2015 by Dewey Mahood (Plankton Wat, Eternal Tapestry) and TJ Thompson (Electro-Kraken, The Social Stomach). The duo played a few shows, but were quickly joined by Caroline Chaparro on tenor saxophone. This trio gigged throughout 2016, and released the album Cryptic Fortune. 2017 saw the addition of James Shaver (Abronia, Million Brazilians) on bass.
