AJ Froman
AJ Froman
AJ Froman originally started as Albert Bowman and John Joyce. Two musicians from the east coast living in San Diego who came together with similar musical interests. After recording a 7-song EP with the help of Jeff Shaefer, the three began an latin, experimental, progressive rock project. After cycling through a variety of musicians, the band currently consists of William Hart, Sarah Norwood, Albert Bowman, Jeff Shaefer, and John Joyce. With influences ranging from latin to progressive rock and funk, the group does a fine job taking you on a musical journey through harmonized melodies and syncopated rhythms.
Demasiado is a call from the other side of the shadow screen. The light
and the dark both swirl, dance, and bite their way through this music.
From crystalline acoustic delicacy to ferocious baritone bellows,
simultaneously harmonious and at each other's heels.
By the time they've finished you realize that the band is not a group of
mere storytellers but rather guides who have taken you somewhere and
brought you back, barely, leaving you with the elation and terror of
having tasted their transcendent colors.
Demasiado’s three original members, Damon De La Paz, Jon
Piotrowski, and Eric Shefstad, are now joined by members of The
Burning of Rome - drummer Danny King and guitarist Joe Aguilar.
Their 2018 cassette EP ‘Dark Summer’ is available now courtesy of
Weiner Records.
Aunt Cynthia's Cabin
Aunt Cynthia's Cabin
The eerie, neo-psychedelic sound of Aunt Cynthia’s Cabin paints a nostalgic picture of fuzzed-out, California desert rock. The San Diego trio's latest release, Mud Room #13, delivers a blend of fuzzy stoner rock grooves and western desert-rock atop a Bonzo-esque drum sound, hinting at influences from The Brian Jonestown Massacre, All Them Witches and Nirvana. The space captured in the recordings, the airy rumbling guitars and hard-hitting drum sound brings the listener straight to the setting of the narrative. The self-recording trio proves to be well schooled in the art of recording and audio engineering, using far-away room microphones, distortion and natural reverb to create their indistinguishable desert sound. The eeriness of “nothing” begins to blend with the beauty of solitude. Themes of anxiety and paranoia manifest in relatable metaphors swallowed in the isolated surroundings of our sun beaten journey. By the end of Mud Room #13, we have experienced nothing less than a trip out of the city and across the desert floor, along the way peeking into the minds of a band that we know we should have heard before.

The independent garage trio is comprised of San Diego’s Brennan Justice (guitar, lead vocals), Anthony Defreitas (bass, vocals) and Jeremy Luvaas (drums, percussion). Emerging from the ruins of a disbanded surf rock band, Justice and Defreitas developed their signature western tones with an excessive use of spring reverb, translating now to the ethereal, dusty sound of psychedelic desert-rock. The band writes, records and produces all their own music out of a garage and their private studio space. Their initial effort, 7” split On The Mountain released February 2018, debuted the group’s original track On The Mountain alongside an eerie, psychedelic B-Side cover of Neil Diamond's "Solitary Man". Their cover of "Solitary Man" gained an unforseen European momentum, landing a spot on a 3-disc vinyl compilation from French throw-back psych label Fruits de Mer Records.

Aunt Cynthia's Cabin will be releasing their Cabin Fever EP on vinyl, featuring additional tracks from Mud Room #13 and 7" split On The Mountain, on Feedbands records in June 2019.
