Label: Alive Naturalsound

New sunlicked sounds from the kings of contemporary 60’s inspired psych!

As the world is slowly getting back on it’s feet, Triptides is back with their 8th album Alter Echoes! The perfect, uplifting score as the warmth of the sun settles in and the dark times slowly evaporate.

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again (and again); Triptides are truly some of the finest purveyors of sunny psych sounds around! Reverbed licks and hazy vocals, snappy drums and groovy basslines, all perfectly arranged into psyched up pop-pearls that lifts your spirits and sticks that smile right on your face. Their sounds are instantly catchy and easygoing, and at the same time inhabits those melodic variations in the arrangements that enriches their tunes through repeated listening. Goddamn how much I love this bunch..

Fuzz City has a new, short documentary on Triptides’ main-brain and multi-instrumentalist Glenn Brigman! This little flick tells the story of how Triptides came about, and also includes Frankie And The Witch Fingers and Levitation Room. Attached underneath, HIGHLY recommended!!!

The Details

With a sound oscillating between psychedelic pop and space rock, Triptides’ album “Alter Echoes” channels both The Byrds at their most hallucinogenic and Floyd at their most cosmically composed while creating something immediate and new.

The band has established itself as a preeminent part of the Los Angeles new wave psych music. With “Alter Echoes,” they pull away from the pack, thanks to the quality of their songwriting, performance and production.

Triptides is led by multi-instrumentalist Glenn Brigman, and with drummer Brendan Peleo-Lazar and bassist/guitarist Stephen Burns.
