The Jubilee Music & Arts Festival made it official tonight: The Drums, Black Lips, Free Energy and Kitten top the bill for the two-day event June 7-8.

Formerly known as the Silver Lake Jubilee, the festival this year has moved from the streets of that neighborhood to the Downtown Arts District, at 508 Santa Fe St. The Jubilee teased their lineup on Monday by leaking a not-so-hard-to-solve poster with the artists' names jumbled. In addition to the music [...]
Photos and words by Scott Sheff It was a night of trippy beats and psychedelic jams at The Satellite as Incan Abraham wrapped up its West Coast tour in support of its recent album, Springhouse . Featuring a blend intoxicating instrumentals with perfectly matched vocals, Incan Abraham is a band that shines live thanks to its improvisational jams and and pshycadelic sounds. With funky grooves overlayed with pitch-perfect harmonies, Inan Abraham creates an upbeat sound that is eqaully relaxing, particularly evident in the song “Paper Army.” [...]

It’s an eternal habit of music sites and blogs to settle on an instant formula of comparison from a new act to those artists with an established career, so that listeners can have a broad idea of what it sounds like. Sometimes it’s uncomfortable to “label” a new band straight away and relate it to bigger acts, but I can’t help saying that Incan Abraham brings the best of two favorite bands, Local Natives and Grizzly Bear . But hey, saying this is [...]

Incan Abraham , the L.A. quartet who specializes in lush electronic psych-pop and soaring falsettos, are back with another single off of their 10-inch EP, "Springhouse." Like the title track's correlating clip, "Panama Dry" is a hazy amalgamation of lights and texture. Although, this time the band's Noah Kistler-directed music video documents their venture between vast nature and the metropolitan blur of Los Angeles, and between reality and their fascination for the occult. "Springhouse" is out via Jaxart Records. ||| Previously: "Springhouse" ||| Live: Incan Abraham concludes [...]

Photos and words by Samantha Saturday December has been on fire with residencies and The Henry Clay People are no exception, knowing all the right ways to hype up a crowd. As always Joey and Andy Siara brought their brotherly connection to the stage - at times touching foreheads and sweetly sharing the mic. If you missed out on the residency and the world really doesn’t end this week, ring in the New Year with THCP. They say they are taking a break after this. The crowd was looking a little [...]
Animal Collective and Grizzly Bear are two names that tend to get thrown out there when you bring up Incan Abraham 's latest single Springhouse and with good reason.

You can find the track on the new Springhouse EP which his also available on 103 vinyl . Check out the official music video below. - Conrad

"Springhouse" is like an exploding kaleidoscope — vibrant, fluid and bursting with colorful, captivating sounds. Take one listen to the track and immediately Incan Abraham 's musical textures might call to mind the grandeur of Grizzly Bear, the quirkiness of Yeasayer and the wild spirit of Local Natives. These newcomers from Los Angeles recently put out a music video, directed by guitarist Teddy Cafaro along with Jack Johnson, and just yesterday celebrated the release of their EP. This band is certainly one to watch, so don't sleep on 'em! Springhouse [...]
Le quatuor de Los Angeles Incan Abraham nous dévoile le clip de leur dernier titre Springhouse , extrait de leur prochain single à venir pour le 27 Novembre via Jaxart Records . Une vidéo réalisée par Jack Johnson et Teddy Cafaro, qui colle parfaitement à l'ambiance mystique et enivrante du morceau.
Like the light and images in the Jack Johnson/Teddy Cafaro video, the musical influences in Incan Abraham's new single "Springhouse" are refracted and shape-shifted. The L.A. quartet's Afro-tropical psychedelia bears the faint whiff of an indie movement whose ship has sailed, but more than on last year's "Ancient Vacation" EP the rhythmic complexities and inviting harmonies make you want to hear more. An album in 2013, perhaps? This tune comes out next week on vinyl via JAXART Records . ||| Previously: "Springhouse" ||| Live: [...]
