Mr Elevator and the Brain Hotel (Burger Records)
Mr. Elevator – formed in Southern California in 2012 by Thomas Dolas and Justin Martinez (and their mutual love of Donovan) – eschews guitars for vintage synthesizers, organs, and electric pianos, distinguishing themselves within the fuzzy, distorted contemporary Psych-Pop scene. Under the original name Mr. Elevator and the Brain Hotel, the band perfected their sound alongside acts like Thee Oh Sees, The Fresh & Onlys, The Black Lips, Allah-Las, and more. Mr. Elevator comes to Arcata’s Miniplex fresh off the heels of their Desert Daze festival gig. Berlin’s CAMERA are rightly compared with icons of seventies Krautrock such as Neu! and La Düsseldorf, with a tight and driving sound, yet they are still somehow unpredictable.
