12/19 The Blurry Nights & The PhiX at Ortleib’s
December 19, 2015 @ 8:30 pm
The Blurry Nights :: http://www.TheBlurryNights.com
The Blurry Nights sound blends elements of retro grunge, psychedelic rock, electronic dance and pop with an end-product that distinguishes them from their grunge and metal counterparts.
The four members of the band aren’t strangers to playing music together. A few of them were in MJ Project back in 2006, and up until recently they had electro-jam outfit Sonic Spank. Assembled in early 2013, the band has been crafting their sound into a package that won’t disappoint.
“90′s Alice in Chains, mixed with the hipster sound possessed by The Strokes, covered over with Henry Rollins singing while Marc Brownstein throws in a couple of electronic beats just to keep it hip. You follow that? Not many would. Somehow however The Blurry Nights, formerly, Sonic Spank, have taken this sound and made it theirs.” Jimmy Chambers, Upstate Live Music Guide
The PhiX :: https://soundcloud.com/the-phix
The PhiX is a philly based group starting out as a trio and working its way to a full on collaborative group with soul, Jazz, R&B and hip hop roots. They have released their first EP entitled “Now Is When” and have most recently performed at the keswick theater for 102.9’s RockMD fundraiser. They field from a number of inspirations from the roots and MF doom to Stevie wonder and Medeschi Martin and Wood. Ancient stories have been passed on that explore the nature of the sound that had been postulated to have literally melted a man’s face off by simply experiencing it in person. The stories are true, but you don’t have to take my word for it. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NIKAsGC1Iy8)
