Early Show - Konzertbeginn: 18:30 Uhr
Mystic Braves face the most recent chapter of their already extensive career, embodying like no other and from Southern California a decade of overflowing creativity. A creativity that ranges from the birth of Hollywood at the beginning of the 20th century to the new wave of street garage rock, passing through the ecstasy of pure eighties pop of the Paisley Underground.
And it is that they transcend, without a doubt, that heap of garage bands from all over the world that desperately imitate the ways of their outdated heroes. Mystic Braves emerge as a clear example of authenticity in rock and roll: their scruffy looks and easygoing demeanor are genuine outgrowths of their personality and background, not revivalist marketing tactics at all.
Mystic Braves albums are the best example of that legacy. In The Great Unknown (2018) they tempered their previous experimental dalliances, leaving aside the exotic instrumentation of Days of Yesteryear (2015) and the fuzztone couplings of Desert Island (2014) and their 2013 debut album, giving rise to unforgettable compositions with a classic. Not that the Braves had abandoned weird, but weird was just another color in their very prismatic color palette.
In the songs of Pacific Afterglow, his new album, we find a renewed concept of camaraderie. The energy is palpable in their songs and live performances, as preeminent and natural as the artless swagger that permeates their every move. Mystic Braves are ready to move on.
