It was a night of trippy beats and psychedelic jams at The Satellite as Incan Abraham wrapped up its West Coast tour in support of its recent album, Springhouse.
Featuring a blend intoxicating instrumentals with perfectly matched vocals, Incan Abraham is a band that shines live thanks to its improvisational jams and and pshycadelic sounds. With funky grooves overlayed with pitch-perfect harmonies, Inan Abraham creates an upbeat sound that is eqaully relaxing, particularly evident in the song “Paper Army.”
Cuckoo Chaos, who had been supporting Incan Abraham on its recent tour, brought a similar style and sound to the stage as Incan Abraham, filling the room with unpredicatable harmonies and tight jams. The San Diego quartet may play in virtual darkness at times, but it only serves to complement the dream-like sounds they produce, most notablly in songs like “Super Skeleton.”
San Francisco natives Mahgeetah opened the night with a mix of alternate and classic rock, complete with a trio of guitars, a heavy dose of piano and bluesy jams. While you may not be able to pronounce the band’s name, they’re definitely a name to remember and a band worth checking out.
