The Entrance BandThunderstorm In Ladbroke Grove
LA trio (ft. Pixies bassist) share latest video from new live LP ‘Fuzz Club Session’

LA psych-rock trio The Entrance Band is comprised of Guy Blakeslee (also renowned for his acoustic folk/blues project Entrance),- Paz Lenchantin (Currently of Pixies, formerly QOTSA, A Perfect Circle, Zwan) and Derek James. Following a one-off London show at Fuzz Club’s ‘Under The Arches’ last year, the label invited the band to the Lovebuzz Productions studio in South London to record a Fuzz Club Session LP – the warm, analog recording allowing their tripped out R&B to shine in all its lysergic glory.

As with all Fuzz Club Sessions the album is recorded live and onto 2” tape, consisting of three brand new improvised jams that see their warped, groove-ridden psychedelia at its best, as well as a woozy down-tempo rendition of The Seeds’ ‘Can’t Seem To Make You Mine’. The latest video to be released is for ‘Thunderstorm In Ladbroke Grove’ – a slow-burning, kaleidoscopic piece of minimal psychedelic blues that clocks in at just over eight minutes.

The new tracks on the session mark a distinct difference from the howling acid-rock numbers seen on previous albums, instead offering a totally hypnotic and dreamy journey through their majestic psychedelic prowess.

Formed in 2003 The Entrance Band have been earning widespread praise – picking up rave reviews and touring with the likes of Mazzy Star, Sonic Youth and Yeah Yeah Yeah’s to name a few. Thurston Moore took a particular shine to the group, releasing some of their earlier albums on his imprint Ecstatic Peace! and describing their unique sound as “the most alluring and entrancing vibe I’ve yet to experience in this new age. A soundtrack for the new groove”

“[The Entrance Band] filtered Bay Area psych-rock and Chicago-style electric blues into an idiosyncratic and compelling mishmash” Pitchfork

“Grime-ridden and heavily dissonant stoner rock with bubblier strands of ’60s garage-pop and dance music that have bent, distorted, and burned around the edges.” Consequence of Sound
