"Take you to sun-drenched landscapes with the waves rushing in."
– My Old Kentucky Blog

"Burnt out skies and a peyote drenched moonlight glow above an ancient indian burial ground in the Southern California desert created the landscape for the music – 60s era psychedelia bathed in twangy reverb and infectious melody, fitting for the most epic trip." – The Mad Mackerel
The Creation Factory
People don’t dance anymore to rock bands, but The Creation Factory is here to change that.

Channeling the sounds of 1960s psychedelic beats, the Los Angeles-based five-piece isn't just making music—"we're capturing the sort of sounds that people don’t hear anymore," says front man Shane Stots—it's creating an experience.

"We’re bringing sounds back from the grave, maybe better than they were before,” Stots, who’s also a member of Los Angeles rock group Mystic Braves, says-and he’s not kidding. The group uses authentic 1960s gear (and an era-appropriate look) to create blues-infected rock designed to get a crowd’s feet moving. It’s no wonder, then, that the band-which sold out its first show and has a full length debut album out this May on Lolipop Records will be heading to Europe in August to perform at the mod & 60’s underground weekender Euroyeye.

The Creation Factory was formed in 2014 when Stots and Iggy Gonzalez (drums) pieced together a style infused gang of psychedelic bandits, including band members Neil Soiland and Gabriel Pacheco on guitar and Glenn Brigman on keyboards.

While the musical appeal of The Creation Factory's hard to ignore, Stots insists the band's also out to show fans what they've been missing. “I’m trying to revive music and expose it to a younger generation," he says. "I'm going backwards to go forward."

So, while the past is firmly on The Creation Factory’s side, it’s the future that truly belongs to the band.

The Upsidedown
The Upsidedown recently toured Australia with The Dandy Warhols in support of their latest EP on Reverb Records titled "Under". The Upsidedown's music has been featured on this season's Showtime blockbuster Ray Donovan, Sons of Anarchy, True Blood, and Vampire Diaries. The band is recording their fourth full length album in 2016. The Portland Psych-pop outfit have been support for the likes of The Jesus and Mary Chain, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, A Place To Bury Strangers, The Psychedelic Furs, and have performed at The Black Angels Levitation festival twice.
