TUNES // The Molochs – You And Me

Mark The Molochs down as the latest group bringing a promising new slice of the past to the LA scene. They’ve been described as “Black Lips meets The Byrds,” a rather fitting comparison.

Their jangly, garage tinted sound betrays a deep and nuanced love for Dylan, The Beatles, Velvet Underground, and the world that music brought to life. But The Molochs bring a contemporary and almost ode-like quality to the table that elevate their songs far beyond mere mimicry.

Theirs is a mission statement that promises to pull apart the past, rather than recreate it.

For LA peeps, The Molochs have a Monday night residency coming up in January at The Echo. Dates n tix here. Their sophomore LP, American Velvet, will be out January 13. Pre-order here.
