New Audio: The Scuzzy Psych Pop of Peacers

Perhaps best known as the frontman of Bay Area-based indie act Sic Alps, Mike Donovan’s latest project Peacers initially began as a solo recording project but has since expanded to feature members of Thee Oh Sees and The Fresh and Onlys. Interestingly, with the release of the project’s Ty Segall-produced, self-titled 2015 debut,  Donovan cemented a reputation for wobbly and scuzzy, outsider psych rock that draws from his hometown’s storied, psychedelia-fueled counterculture as you’ll hear on the jangling,  boogie woogie, Marc Bolan-like single “R.J.D. (Salam)” off their debut.

The band is playing a May 13, 2017 set with Ganglians at Sacramento‘s The Red Museum. Catch them while you can, eh?
