    Music Box Presents The Warlocks Fine Points The Spiral Electric ("Upon Your Shore" CD release) Visuals by Molly Rogers DJ Jodie Artichoke Show Details When: Wednesday, Jun 3, 2015 9:00 PM Ticket Price: $9.00 - $12.00 Door Time: 8:00 PM Restrictions: 18 & over Under 21 must buy $5 non-alcoholic drink ticket at the door. The Warlocks Very little changes in the world of The Warlocks…four years have passed since The Mirror Explodes, three musicians have left the group, three have joined in their place, and despite it all this band is still drifting down an endless twilight road of beautiful but troubling sounds. Key Warlock Bobby Hecksher continues to fashion an aural netherworld where clouds of fuzz and distortion float overhead as the slow but relentless pulse of bass and drums echoes in the distance. Ultimately, the Warlocks only do one thing, but they’ve learned to do it quite well (or rather Hecksher does it quite well and knows where to get the assistance he needs), and 2013’s Skull Worship confirms his obsessions have not changed one bit with time. On Skull Worship, Hecksher (who handles guitar, keys, bass, and lead vocals) is joined by guitarist J.C. Rees (the only other holdover from The Mirror Explodes), guitarist Earl V. Miller, bassist Chris Di Pino, and drummer George Serrano, and the album is a well-crafted exercise in dark psychedelia, recalling the effectively minimal melodies and percussion of the Velvet Underground, the buzzy doomstruck tone of the Jesus and Mary Chain, and the layered guitar tones of My Bloody Valentine, while adding a sinister beauty that’s unique to this band. (And the atmospheric production and engineering by Rod Cervera certainly deserve a shout-out.) If Hecksher’s lyrics almost seem beside the point (and don’t get much prominence in the mix), the sound is inarguably impressive if this is in your wheelhouse at all, especially the march into feedback of “Dead Generation,” the narcotic drift of “He Looks Good in Space,” and the reverse-gear loops that punctuate the concluding descent into the maelstrom, “Eyes Jam.” Skull Worship is fine, satisfying stuff, though it may not suit those who prefer to listen to their music during daylight hours. Judging from this, one might guess it’s been ages since Hecksher saw the morning sun of his own volition. By Mark Deming Fine Points Fine Points are a new band featuring members of Sleepy Sun and Lumerians. The Spiral Electric The Spiral Electric initially began as a duo consisting of Clay Andrews and Nicolas Percey, quickly expanding to five members in a matter of months. Between 2012 and 2015 the band has gathered a solid local following and toured up and down the west coast from Seattle to LA multiple times. The permanent lineup of Clay Andrews (Vocals / Guitar / Keyboards / Percussion), Nicolas Percey (Lead Guitar), Tyler Allen (Bass) and Tyler Weeks (Drums) recorded their full band debut EP, "Upon Your Shore", at Skylab Studio in Los Angeles with producer Tommy Dietrick, and it was released in April 2015. The sound of The Spiral Electric is one part soaring melody, one part face melting guitar, one part orbiting synth, one part danceable groove and a heavy dose of west coast psychedelia, shaken not stirred. Drink it straight, no chaser. Projections by Miss Molly Rogers
