Just as their name suggests, Levitation Room's music instills the listeners' ears with the light feeling of floating. The dreamy guitar and lo-fi projections of psychedelic rock and garage are reminiscent of deep 1960s-era rock, but still grounded in an alternative dreamgaze flavor that permeates modern indie music today. This East L.A. quartet's sound is so carefully crafted to golden reverb perfection, they shouldn't be under the radar for much longer. Especially here in Southern California, where their garage sound and far-out '60s visual aesthetic fit right in. They're midway through their month-long residency tonight at Detroit Bar, so catch them while you can, tonight they share the bill with Wax Children, The Sister Ruby Band, and Them Howling Bones.
