XEMU RECORDS

Since their widely-acclaimed self-titled debut album released in 1999 Dead Meadow have released seven studio albums - three via Matador records (Shivering King and Others (2003), Feathers (2005), and Old Growth (2008)) and two live albums which includes Three Kings, a feature length live film and soundtrack. Their unique marriage of Sabbath riffs, dreamy layers of guitar-fuzz bliss with singer Jason Simon’s melodic croon has won over psychedelic pop/rock and stoner rock fans alike and with their new album The Nothing They Need (Xemu Records) the band show that in 2018, they continue to fuse their love of early-’70s hard rock and ’60s psychedelia into their own distinct sound.

The album was recorded in Dead Meadows’ studio/rehearsal space, The Wiggle Room and it celebrates twenty years of the band with eight songs that feature everyone that has been musically involved with the band over the years. Jason and Steve Kille are joined by original drummer Mark Laughlin, Stephen McCarty ( the drummer throughout the Matador years), and current drummer Juan Londono. Cory Shane joins them on guitar for some Feathers era dual guitar interplay.

STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: Woozy, warbling guitars and throbbing bass kicks bolster the psychedelic maelstrom that only Dead Meadow could provide. A wholly mesmerising trip through progressive psychedelia and staggered rock. Superb.

Strangers Family Band are brothers Rick & Scott Seltzer ,(vocals, guitar & bass) , Juan Londono (vocals/percussion ) and John Randono (keys), originally from Florida but now based in L.A and signed to Dead Meadows Xemu Records label for their first album release. Collaborating with like minded L.A musicians like Jeff Davies (ex Brian Jonestown) , the band’s sound has now evolved in to a fully flared psychedelic experience reflecting the bands interest in obscure 60’s psychedelia. The album has been produced by Dead Meadow’s Steve Kille and mixed by Dave Schiffman (RHCP/BRMC).

Following up their successful Matador album "Old Growth", and released on their own Xemu records label, "Three Kings" is an ambitous release consisting of the CD/LP which is a mix of live material and 5 brand new songs mixed by Dave Sciffman and mastered by Howie Weinberg. The DVD is feature full length concert movie with accompanying soundtrack , a stunning mix of fantasy film and multi - camera live concert footage filmed of footage from their last show of their 2009 tour , alongside vignettes depicting themes of corruption, destruction and rebirth. The band describe the film as 'a play on characters we allude to in our last record ("Old Growth") but elaborated on with the biblical bedouins concept of wandering holy mystics'.
