The "New Band To burn One To" today is Peanut Butter Lovesicle.
"Take two brothers from the Pittsburgh area, add a cousin who plays drums and sings, stir for a few years, hole the trio up in a house in Ocean City, NJ and then let them...rock! One of the most interesting and unique sounding bands to come out of our area, Peanut Butter Lovesicle consists of Jake and Mike D’Arc (on guitar/keys and bass respectivley; they both also sing) and Timmy Miller on drums and vocals. The trio packed clubs this past summer as word spread that this was one of the hottest new bands around. The Inlet in Somers Point had them every Tuesday. The now-closed Hibiscus had them at least once a month as did other local spots. The band also recorded the self-released stoner-rock EP Heavy Daze Wildcat Craze. The band is now off to, and based in Brooklyn to check out the club scene there, which will limit the band’s local gig schedule, but PBL will be back. PBL may be one of the strangest names since Dr. Dog arrived on the Philly scene, but you can’t say the guys and their music don’t fit under the “strange” umbrella. Think Black Sabbath meets the Black Keys with a little Stones, Flaming Lips and Queens of the Stone Age thrown in."
Peanut Butter Lovesicle's infectious brand of heavy-psych tinged rock will melt its way into your brain. Since their arrival to the local scene, the band has managed to become a flavor of ice cream and pizza special at two local establishments. The band tears it up live and even uses vintage equipment to create the unique Peanut Butter Lovesicle experience. Go to their MySpace page now to see what all the hype is about.
