I can’t tell you much about Los Angeles-based Incan Abraham, except that I hadn’t heard of them until catching their set at the Noise Pop Happy Hour last Thursday. I was totally impressed by their live sound and since downloading their 5-song EP Ancient Vacation have been equally impressed with how they sound on record.
Apparently Incan Abraham made a good impression at SXSW last year (“Ten Acts That Rocked South by Southwest“).
By their own account, Incan Abraham considers themselves to be alternative, ambient, pop, psychedelic, and shoegaze. After first listen, a few bands come to mind… Local Natives (another Los Angeles band) and The Verve. Those associations probably say more about my taste than their music.
Check ’em out for yourself.
