The trio that is stirring up conversations of a “must listen to band” is Night Beats who headlined The Echoplex and played a heavy dose of their recent album Who Stole My Generation. Lee Blackwell not only is on lead vox, but the man is an outstanding guitarist. Drummer James Traeger and bassist Jakob Bowden helped make the room shake with those psych/rock vibes.

Another incredible guitarist is lead vocalist Sade Sanchez of L.A. Witch. The trio has been playing non-stop and was recently at The El Rey with The Coathangers and Death Valley Girls.

C.G. Roxanne and the Nightmares and Vanilla (Alex from Cosmonauts) started everything off.

Limited Release Jagwar Ma Remix of Night Beats' "Sunday Mourning"

Gigwise are premiering a new remix of Night Beats track ‘Sunday Mourning’ mixed by Jono Ma of Jagwar Ma:

"The beatmaster behind Jagwar Ma, Jono Ma, has crafted a sublime remix of ‘Sunday Mourning’ by Heavenly Recordings signees Night Beats. You can listen to it first on Gigwise below.

The marriage of two of the worlds best new bands was always going to be a recipe for success and fortunately the electronic reworking of the psych R&B hit far exceeds our high expectations.

Lee Blackwell’s vocals are stripped from their usual guitar and drum driven sound and imaginatively transformed to fit on top of a fluid beat that nods to the warm analog electronic production of Jagwar Ma hero Andrew Weatherall." via Heavenly

Red Bull Sound Select Presents Denver: Night Beats, Plum and Colfax Speed Queen

Red Bull Sound Select is a monthly live music showcase featuring some of the South's hottest emerging artists. Throughout the year, the showcase will visit different career-launching venues highlighting an exciting lineup of local acts. RSVP HERE


As of 2016, Night Beats are a Seattle-based band, but all three members grew up in The Lone Star State. Over the course of seven years and three full length albums, the band have honed their biting take on psychedelic garage rock to a fine edge. Their latest album, this year's Who Sold My Generation, is a formidable addition to an already impressive catalog; a logical next step in their path as first-rate purveyors of hard-edged psychedelic rock.

Among other things, Strange Inquiry spoke with the band a few hours before their show at The Mohawk to find out the dumbest ways they've hurt themselves, what they miss most about Texas, and whether or not they believe in ghosts. via Do512

Night Beats Successfully Revamp For 'Who Sold My Generation'

Drunken Werewolf takes a look at 'Who Sold My Generation:'

"Night Beats have crafted an album that deserves your attention from front to back. Sure, there may be a few growers, and penultimate track "Turn the Lights" is dwarfed by its successor, the surprising "Egypt Berry," but there isn’t an ounce of filler, and Who Sold My Generation’s peaks rank among some of the band’s best work to date."
