New record Peace Potato out 5/5 on Trouble In Mind Records

“In just a few short seconds, psychedelic pop-rocker Doug Tuttle blurs the lines between the past and present on his new single “Bait The Sun,” off of his new album Peace Potato. The New England musician follows up last year’s It Calls On Me with a new collection of effortless and breezy work that holds up in the arena of musicians taking a nod from rock’s past. It’s clear Tuttle was attentive to every detail on “Bait The Sun,” offering a smattering of ’70s harmonies and guitar work that pay perfect homage to the musical greats that came before him. Listen below.” – Stereogum

“On ‘Our Birth Is but a Sleep and Forgetting’ (2016, Small Stone Records), the veteran instrumental New Paltz dark psych/rock trio It’s Not Night; It’s Space does in fact come speaking of love, though a different kind of love from Sade’s or Cole Porter’s. This is not voiceless or wordless music per se.

Kevin Halcott’s rainbow of blooming, saturated, reverberated, filtered and E-bowed guitar sounds, arrayed in Spartan-but-artful counterpoint, is the first sound among equals in the democratic INNIS mix. Bassist Tommy Guerrero’s riff commitment is spiritual and simply unshakable. But in my opinion this band’s secret weapon (and I was there at their first performances at Adam Roufberg’s open mic at Oasis in New Paltz at the turn of the decade) has always been the off-genre, curiously distinctive drumming of Michael Lutomski. It is by virtue of his deep and laggy Nick Mason pocket, his flitty, retro psychedelic moves and the pure tonefulness and the variety of glancing sounds in his playing that – no matter how sludgy it gets (plenty) – INNIS never, ever strikes me as a metal band.” -Almanac Weekly
