“Pointillistic structures with a mainspring of minimalism.”
– Jon Pareles, The New York Times
“New York psych-pop explorers Zula aren’t easy to pin down, but while their sound shifts track to track, there is a beautiful coherence to an album like This Hopeful.”
“For lack of a better word, this is pop, sincere, offbeat, and playfully and unassumingly experimental: you’ll be hard pressed to find anyone else that sounds like them, or as musically and effectively fulfilling.”
– Tiny Mix Tapes
“Pop sensibilities push through well-crafted avant-rock”
“Tense yet tempered psych pop”
The Heavy Medicine Band
The Heavy Medicine Band is a dreamy, psychedelic, electric-rock band, from Ottawa Ontario, Canada. Lead by dark yet benevolent vocals, through ephemera of weaving acid-wash guitars and sympathetic drones of pounding drums and bass.
The Heavy Medicine Band is wet music that transcends any sort of restrictive labels, like “psychedelic”, though it is an appropriate starting point.
mirage rock / cactus bop / turkey hop
Casa Lagarto is a garage groove outfit from Ottawa, Canada. Their style is referred to as ‘mirage rock’ or ‘cactus bop’ as they blend environmental textures to form a hazey musical abyss for lizards, crows, and any other members of the animal kingdom not invited onto the arc.
