The Molochs
America's Velvet Glory
Out January 13th, 2017 Listen on Spotify

On their second album (and debut with Innovative Leisure), Los Angeles group The Molochs interpret multiple threads of rock history—starting with Syd Barrett and Dylan, The Kinks and Stones, right up through the early 80s "Dunedin Sound" of The Clean—and come away with something refreshing. Recorded over sessions in a Long Beach studio, America's Velvet Glory finds the band adding subtle richness to their raw zeal: via piano, organ, sitar, harmonica, and various kinds of percussion. The accompanying music videos, shot on Super 8 and Super 16 film, further underscore a sense of hazy hometown nostalgia-meets-modern love and monotony. "Mission accomplished," says BrooklynVegan.
