A year after NorCal native Yoodoo Park, known as GRMLN, released his debut LP, Empire, he has joined a label (Carpark Records), garnered solid reviews and announced the arrival in September of his new LP, Soon Away. GRMLN's ocean breeze–tinged power pop finds itself nestled somewhere between Wavves and Velvet Crush, where hazy nostalgia reigns. Now a trio, Park and his bandmates offer up a sound of colder beaches, with enough raucous live energy to keep you warm. Seasoned locals Gothic Tropic keep the evening's trio trend going with their worldbeat-driven psych-pop. Singer Cecilia Della Peruti may or may not be barefoot, but count on her skilled guitar parts and extended solos to keep you hooked.
