Flashes of off-kilter inspiration, piano-organ blues and quirky a cappella lend an artsy flourish to Gardens' primal rock 'n' roll base.A smartly conceived, confidently executed first effort from a band you'll be hearing more about." - Brian McCollum / Detroit Free Press.
Raised on a diet of Terrence Mckenna,The Beatles, Syd Barrett, Nirvana, and Turkish psychedelic music, GARDENS is part of the new sound of Detroit.
Formed by Matthew Mueller, Jeffrey Thomas, Julian Spradlin and Vincent Mazzola, they have already released a couple of singles and cassette, and toured the country, sharing the stage with the likes of Brimstone Howl, Thee Oh Sees, Detroit Cobras, Akron Family, and Tyvek, to name just a few.
"Gardens" is their debut album, produced and engineered by Chris Koltay (Akron Family, Dirtbombs, SSM) at High Bias recordings, with Warren Defever of His Name Is Alive.
