Electric Mind Machine is one of the most exciting things to come out of the L.A. garage rock scene in a long time. The collaboration between founding members Kenneth Wessel and Sara Loera has resulted in pure sonic alchemy that is sure to induce a state of rock n’ roll euphoria in all who listen. Sharing an appreciation of the music from the 60s garage, psychedelic, mod and freak beat scenes, they developed their sound; keeping a vintage feel but infusing the energy and excitement of the local Southern California club scene. Vocalist Sara Loera conjures the sultry charisma and power of a modern day Mariska Veres of
the legendary Dutch band the Shocking Blue. Supported by the raw, fuzzed out guitars of Kenneth Wessel they create a unique sound that captures the warm feelings of the past, but still has bite.
Electric Mind Machine has recently hit the studio to complete a 10 song full-length album. The first song released, “Electric Mind Machine,” was featured on the Garage Punk Hideout’s compilation “Countdown to a Breakdown.” This song was first played on the Infamous Frankystein Deejay Show on Radiolux in Spain and the UK. A local L.A. radio station KXLU 88.9 fm was the first to preview the upcoming single “Pretty Face.”
The full-length LP will also feature a unique version of Status Quo’s hit “Pictures of Matchstick Men”
Past projects include the Beat Killers, The Odd Squad, The Sweet Nothings, Crank Williams and 2012 Coachella Festival performers Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.
Electric Mind Machine will be returning to the L.A. club circuit in January.
