Based in Echo Park, Los Angeles—home of a white-hot garage band revival of which the Braves are at the forefront—this five-piece musical sensation started out as a hobby, but for the musicians involved has become much more.
And while the group—made up of Julian Ducatenzeiler on guitar and vocals, Tony Malacara on bass and vocals, Shane Stotsenberg on guitar and vocals, Cameron Gartung on drums and Ignacio Gonzalez on organ and tambourine—isn’t straying far from what Ducatenzeiler describes as a “a blend of influence and sound that is unprecedented in contemporary music,” there are certainly some changes afoot.
Since the early days, Mystic Braves have gone on to release two full-length records—both recorded at Lolipop—and a single and have played extensively to ever-increasing crowds in Southern California and beyond. And the goodwill that their first songs garnered has never gone away.
The origins of his newest single, “Blue Ain’t What I Feel For You”, are as such:
It was in Denver, Colorado where the friendship of Dodge and producer and former member of Plum, Jake Supple, carried to Supple’s home studio, where the two, on their first day of meeting, would sit down to record a song written by Dodge in his days of living in isolation in the Redwood Forests of Northern California. Only recently had it resurfaced in his solo sets. “The song is a list of things either equal or worse-or at least as jarring as-the death of love,” says Dodge from his home in Hollywood, his intention was to “conjure images of dangerous things or hazardous events happening against what I percieve as beautiful”. Each brief line in it embodies it’s own harrowing, and sometimes heartwrenching event: the mass suicides of wild animals only tamed in death, the boxer’s once handsome, now grotesque and bloodied profile, freshly pummeled by the “15 heavyweight knockout punches.”, or the mutilation of the vivid and meticuliously detailed landscape paintings of Prussian-born Albert Beirstadt of early last century, “burned before your eyes”. Each line showing destinctly that, to appropriately convey the viceration of a heart in love, one must know the nuculus of what draws the heart to beauty in the beginning.
What the two produced that day is simply magnificent. Like Buddy Holly evoking the image of raindrops in Raining in My Heart, this is a musician seeing around and through the pillars of his own past conventions, achieving redefinition.
“Blue..” will be released as a casingle on Get Loud Recordings on January 11th followed by a long string of dates spanning towards a tour of Europe and a new album in the summer.
"I like to say that nothing is off the table." says lead singer Julian Fulco. "The variety in our music is what continues to keep me going. We don't play by any rules when it comes to what we write and record. Every day sparks new feelings and opens new doors for who we are and what we are capable of." Change was recorded by the band themselves, while being mixed and mastered by astute engineer Mark Derryberry (ELO and various sound design projects ) in Arvada, Colorado. Julian; along with Mark and Jim Boyd; made sure that even the smallest of details came across in production. With the diverse sounds of 60s throwback tune "Time Traveler" and the vintage keyboards and mellotron sounds of "Sleep Softly" to the raw rockers "Change Is Gonna Come" and "Fatal Farm", the band makes sure to represent a wide range of styles that keep you intrigued and enthralled to reabsorb the many layers that construct the tracks.
The band hopes to continue this growth when they return to the road later in the year and are eager to play for larger audiences in as many areas as they can reach. The band takes pride in their live performances, citing that their energy on stage is very personal and authentic. They love to bring the songs that they have created to life in ways that they have never done before. They believe that this is only the beginning, and they are excited for what lies ahead as they continue their tread towards prominence.
