Daydream Machine
Daydream Machine
The fuzzy, dark, Britpop-infused neo-psychedelia of Daydream Machine reverberated itself into being in 2012 in Portland, Oregon. Composed of lead-vocalist Jason Adams, guitarist and producer Jonathan Allen, Bassist Josh Kalberg, Keyboard player and (tambourine savant) Travis Hendricks and drummer Bob Mild, Daydream Machine is a band that has embraced experimentation in the way they write, record and perform their songs. They have also invited collaboration from fellow psychedelic phenoms like Peter Holstrom (Dandy Warhols) and Collin Hegna (Brian Jonestown Massacre, Federale) Nathan Junior.

Their first record Twin Idols was released in 2014 by Picture in Your Ear Records. Daydream Machine toured the west coast supporting the LP and had started to generate some buzz in psychedelic and shoegaze circles. Some of that buzz included Daydream Machine getting snatched up as tour support for Hope Sandoval, (who included “And I Love Her” from Twin Idols on her Brooklyn Vegan curated playlist in 2016!)

Since then, Daydream Machine has shared a stage with: Kula Shaker, The Black Angels, Dead Meadow, The Warlocks, Miranda Lee Richards, Dandy Warhols and Luna. In March 2017, they released the LP The Show Must Not Go On (Picture in Your Ear). The Show is driven rhythmic grooves and roomy arrangements which feature soaring fuzz-drenched leads, knob twirling synths and sax solos. The Show was included on The Big Takeover’s end-of-year best album list.

Daydream Machine is currently working on their third LP.
Shadowlands
Shadowlands
Towing a line between DIY post-punk urgency and cool measured composition, Shadowlands create soundscapes of pop bombast with a wry sense of experimentalism fit for an 80’s synth soundtrack.


The romantic relationship between lead vocalist, keyboardist, and songwriter, Amy Sabin and drummer Casey Logan brought together two pairs of life-long friends with deep roots in the music scenes of Portland, Chicago, LA, and Kansas City. Sabin credits the deep friendships and long conversations about music and life for empowering her to dig deep into emotive songwriting and anthemic vocals.
Young Elders
Young Elders
Young Elders are a psych-rock band from San Francisco bringing street harmonies and psychedelic wizardry on the edge of a blade. They left behind the acoustic instruments of their first albums and replaced them with combo organs and fuzz guitars. Young Elders' lead songwriter, Nick Castro, is known for his acoustic work that featured members of Current 93, Espers, and In Gowan Ring, as well as for his time in legendary UK psych-pop band, Kaleidoscope. Castro has played Spain's EuroYeYe, the Austin Psych Fest, Belgium's ZXZW festival and has shared stages with the Sun Ra Arkestra, Vetiver, and Os Mutantes among others while also playing guitar and keys for Asteroid #4. Young Elders have played recent shows with Chicano Batman, Creation Factory, Mondo Drag, Cellar Doors, Spindrift and Frankie & the Witchfingers just to name a few.
