We're a three piece indie rock band from Pomona, California. We formed in early 2009. If you open your eyes and your ears, you'll learn that we're just a musical bricolage.
"Diversity is the name of the game when it comes to Phaxanation & the Dust Kickers" says Waleed Rashidi of the Inland Empire Weekly. This statement is amazingly appropriate considering that the three guys responsible for the tightly bound beats, trippy fuzz tones, and atmospheric indie-rock are actually multi-instrumentalists. Count 10 instruments amongst three dudes. On their most recent record "Now & Then" they never limited themselves, making the arrangements as complex as they felt necessary by adding layers of very subtle instrumentation with vintage organs from the early 60's, tracks upon tracks of guitar drenched in tape-echo, and analog spring-reverb units, and get this: even saxophone!
It's a somewhat different story when they perform live. Three dudes can only do so much in a live setting, however instead of opting to have other performers fill in the potential gaps, they instead put on a much, much heavier spectacle by turning the volume up to it's breaking point and making the vibes as intense and "touchy-feely" as possible. Adrien Parker, Enrique Poveda, and Daniel Huizar are currently finishing up their debut record… “Now & Then” is slated for release in late 2011.
