Back in May, the Fine Steps were recording some tracks at Tiny Telephone in San Francisco. I hadn’t seen some of these dudes in months since they’re pretty occupied with other bands: guitarist Kyle Hoover and bassist Alex Sowles also play in Ganglians, Dylan plays in GGreen, and front-man Julian Elorduy is the former drummer of the monster band known as The Mayyors. Yes, a Sacramento power group. The studio sessions took me back - I had no idea Alex could play bass! I’ve been describing it like this: “It’s as if The Mantles and Ganglians had a baritone voiced love child.” Hope you enjoy it, and look forward to some more amazing Fine Steps tracks - I’ve heard a few, they’re pretty dope!
Blasted Canyons get loud at the Hemlock tonight (6/15) with Sacramento’s Fine Steps and Boom Bang, 9PM $6.
Blasted Canyons – the rhythm ridden trio will have their new LP for sale tonight! The much anticipated record is being put out by John Dwyer’s label Castle Face Records. Opening the show are the Fine Steps – a Sacramento super group consisting of former MAYYORS drummer Julian Elorduy, with two Ganglians: Kyle Hoover and Alex Sowles, plus a few young bucks. I got a chance to drop by the Fine Steps recording sessions at Tiny Telephone a few weeks ago, and the steps have some real magic. It sounds like a Ganglians and Mantles sweet baritone voiced love child – you’ll be excited, I promise. Oklahoma’s Boom Bang also play.
