LARS FINBERG (LA, In the Red)
Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Korn, Lars Finberg. Bands and musicians from Bakersfield, California have a tendency of doing things their own way. Though he left Bakersfield a while ago, Mr. Lars Aldric Finberg has built a solid reputation as a unique artist and his work in legendary bands A-Frames, The Intelligence and Thee Oh Sees, have helped make him a West Coast elder statesman when it comes to idiosyncratic rock n roll.
Produced and recorded by Ty Segall, his new album Moonlight Over Bakersfield, out December 1 on In the Red, combines post-punk jitters, experimental pop, and deep rhythms.
Tunes rock forth from a jukebox with a crack in the glass, with channels leaking / kaleidoscopic aspects of low-fi life, all bubblegum…

Hazy pop meets shimmering slowcore.
“A solo project by Chicago guitarist-vocalist Joshua S. Condon of garage misfits Glyders. The eerie, skeletal EP sounds like Condon boiled everything out of a bunch of gnarly psychedelic jams except heavily processed, subterranean-sounding vocals, hazy synths, refracted guitar residue, and simple, hypnotic drum-machine rhythms.” - Chicago Reader
