As The New York Times tells the story, lead guitarist and vocalist “Emir Mohseni, was inspired by the Strokes to pursue a career in music — a passion that brought him to New York all the way from his native Iran.” The move, profiled across acclaimed publications, from Rolling Stone to Billboard, only marked the beginning of the band’s story. Upon landing in this new environment, Mohseni met the three guys that would become his closest friends, and build with him the vitalizing sound and enrapturing live show that The Muckers are garnering early praises for: Anthony Azarmgin at the bass, Chris Cawley on rhythm guitar, and John Zimmerman behind the drums. These guys show a lot of promise, and have the potential to blow up in popularity in a couple more years! Can’t wait to see them live!

New York City’s layers of continuous noise have become the backdrop to a rising four-piece that NME already calls “one of New York’s most exciting new bands.” Just like the city, The Muckers’ sound is equal parts vital and timeless, resolute and vibrant.

Acid Dad first appeared in the New York scene at the onset of 2016. After spending the year self-releasing demos recorded at their studio in upstate New York, the band garnered local praise from the likes of Oh My Rockness, Consequence of Sound, BrooklynVegan, Stereogum and more. After releasing their debut EP “Let’s Plan a Robbery” way back in February 2016, followed by their first sold-out show at Baby’s All Right, Acid Dad embarked upon a two month tour of the United States. Fresh off their first tour, which included numerous SXSW performances as well as appearances on Daytrotter, Audiotree and Jam in the Van, the band started writing their debut LP.

At the outset of 2017, the band began recording what would become their first full length. Now part of the Greenway Records family, their Self-Titiled debut LP was released March 9th to rave reviews from the likes of The New York Times, Consequence of Sound and Brooklyn Vegan. The release of Acid Dad album was followed by a US tour which again included SXSW & sold out shows in New York, LA & San Francisco. On the tail of that success, the band crossed the Atlantic for their first European tour which included riotous shows in Amsterdam, London and Paris. Now back home in NYC, the band has transitioned into creation-mode. Acid Dad is hard at work on LP 2 with new singles slated for release and a Greenway Records full length expected soon after!

Here’s a brand new one from Brooklyn’s Acid Dad! Their new record “Take It From The Dead” will be a co-release between The Reverberation Appreciation Society and Greenway Records.

The first single “RC Driver” is out today and accompanied by a video that transports us to warmer times and reminds us to gas up the ol’ jet ski and go climb a waterfall. Stay tuned for more Acid Dad very soon,

Frankie and the witch fingers cavehead greenway ras minds eye

Frankie and the Witch Fingers herald their new 7″ vinyl with the deliriously heavy howl of “Cavehead.” The scorching, rhythm wracked track pulls from both exhaust-huffed biker psych and the polyrhythmic propulsion of Talking Heads. They pair the song with a mind bending, entheogenic video that gives new life to Terrence McKenna’s Stoned Ape Theory. Directed by, filmed, and starring the inimitable Railroad Bill, the clip whips by in a blur of survival panic until Bill’s Early Man encounters the door to higher consciousness via fungal embrace. From there on out the video is soaked in a psylocibin-induced day-glo euphoria, pulsing along to the twisted dance that Frankie and the Witch Fingers lay down in thick portions. Like our prehistoric protagonist, it’s hard to tell if this is the end or a new beginning, but it’s definitely a heady ride either way. The single precedes the band’s upcoming album, details on that coming very soon.

You know them by now. Dylan Sizemore, Shaughnessy Starr, Josh Menashe and Nikki Pickle make up the highly-praised L.A. garage psychedelicists Frankie and the Witch Fingers.  Well known for their explosive live performances, the band has grown their fanbase exponentially with every new album. Combining insta-catchy hooks with muddy garage guitar tones while stirring in absurdist lyric treatments on top, encountering a Witch Fingers tune is not unlike slipping into a hefty acid-soaked hallucination. Both are wild and unpredictable, but you can bet they’ll guide you safely to the Garden of Eden with minimal wear and tear.

Frankie and the Witch Fingers are a swift kick in the ass for garage psych. Their hooks are sharper, the production isn’t vintage for the sake of vintage, and the recorded material captures the energy of the band’s eccentric live performances perfectly. That’s exactly what they do on Heavy Roller” – (Consequence of Sound).

For the first time via Greenway Records, the record is newly re-mastered and re-packaged with brand new art, the jacket features a UV-Gloss treatment like we’ve never seen before & comes with a full color inner sleeve.  Totally re-imagined, Frankie’s fuzzy dream looks and sounds better than ever!

The first 100 orders come with a brand new & exclusive Heavy Roller iron on patch FREE! Don’t snooze!

Initially released in 2016 on Permanent Records to a quick sellout, Greenway Records has remastered, repackaged and officially respawned Heavy Roller into 2020 to fight back the foggy haze of civil unrest and cabin fever isolation with some tried-and-true out-of-body psychedelic fun and excitement.

The California band returns with a fifth album also with a sound that navigates between the garage and the psychedelia, which will transport you to a B movie on a disc full of speed and distortion.

Frankie and the Witch Fingers’ latest LP, “ZAM”, bleeds beyond borders and boundaries. Its opening preternatural sounds bubble up out of the primordial soup, spilling into our world, invading the inner recesses of the listener’s mind. Like a two-headed snake wrapped around the skull, the album pendulates between winding instrumentals and dancey riffs that pop like supernovas out of the black void. Just when a song goes one way, it propels another through long stretches of a cosmic inferno.

Bringing glimmers of krautrock and funk, its eleven tracks unleash a versatile and tenacious weight, slithering between the sexy, the aggressive, the vivacious, and the disorienting—until the living invasion is felt—ZAM—a supernatural entity summoned by four madmen obsessed with tearing open a gateway to dark space. After being pulled apart atom-by-atom, the listener is reconfigured on the other side, born unto starry wasteland. Where head is separated from body. Where music is seen and apocalyptic soundscapes flow to revelation. A funhouse undercurrent pulses through the album’s epoch, reflecting a carnival mosaic shrewdly lulling and doggedly brutal. As one track bleeds into the next, that hour of running time becomes wormhole travel, until the listener returns earthbound, transmuted, craving more odyssey.

We discovered the Frankie and The Witch Fingers at the Psych Fest in 2018 and they blew our brains out. They recently toured and left a good feeling with the presentation of their latest album ” ZAM “, a one-hour cucumber that combines many influences ranging from King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard to Psychedelic Porn Crumpets , but with that Californian drop of a first-timer Ty Segall or the always effective Thee Oh Sees .

The quartet formed by Dylan Sizemore (voice and guitar), Shaughnessy Starr (drums), Josh Menashe (guitar) and Alex Bulli (bass) combine all this and more, wrapping your skull with songs that drag you to an ambiguous feeling of psychodelia and intergalactic dance in equal parts. Their band recently released their fifth album..

The main attraction of Frankie and the Witch Fingers is their explosive performance. With their rowdy and visceral approach to live shows, each member brings their own devilry to induce an experience of bacchanal proportions.

Using absurd lyrical imagery—soaked in hallucination, paranoia, and lust—the band’s M.O. strikes into dark yet playful territory. This sense of radical duality is astir at every turn, in every time signature change. Airy vocal harmonies over heavily serrated riffs. Low-key shamanic roots under vivid high-strangeness. Rambling stretches and punctuated licks. Cutting heads and kissing lips. All this revealing a stereophonic schizophrenia that has flowed throughout their body of work: an ebb & flow of flowery-poppy horror. The band’s latest incarnation is primed to break new sonic ground, edging into the funky and preternatural. Just when you think the trip couldn’t get any weirder, Frankie and the Witch Fingers cranks up the dial, shatters the mundane, and
summons new visions.
