Les Grys-Grys hail from Montpellier, France, but the shaggy-haired quintet sound more like they’re from London in the mid-’60s. The group take the snarling vocals of early Mick Jagger and combine them with the spiky garage-rock riffs of The Yardbirds and The Kinks to energetic effect. It’s as retro and secondhand as music gets — modern-day kids imitating the young Rolling Stones imitating their hardened blues elders — and yet that seemingly tired formula has led to so much great rock & roll. San Diego’s The Loons share some of the same influences but with more of an American edge, led by maracas-shaking shaman Mike Stax (The Crawdaddys, Tell-Tale Hearts). Local sextet The Creation Factory pump out a more overtly psychedelic brand of fuzzed-out garage-rock bliss.
