Today's New Band To Burn One To is Jovontaes
Like some instrumental psychedelic rock? Look no further than Kentucky's own Jovontaes. Give the Myspace a whirl and download a few free tracks from their Bandcamp page.
Named after 90s street skater Jovontae Turner, Jovontaes are a group of kids from the Lexington, KY community, tearing up both the psych and skateboarding scenes. Not doing what you’d expect from a bunch of skaters, these dudes are making caveman psych rock (with hints of surf and kraut) like a scaled down Eternal Tapestry yet still sounding way weirder than the standard psych-jam band trying to live in the past of the 60s. Not too detached from last year’s rad tape on Eggy, on this one you get almost 50 minutes of songs, closing out the second side with a sprawling free-form musique-concrete jam piece. Recorded late 2010 in their Void Skateshop, (which apparently is right around the corner from Caboladies’ old recording space). Hand-numbered edition of 100 pro-dubbed clear tapes (with a lil’ skatebuddy imprinting) and absolutely stunning full-color psychedelic artwork by the equally beautiful young artist Camille Bryant.
