Evolfo have announced the release of their debut LP, Last of the Acid Cowboys, slated for April 7th via Royal Potato Family. In advance of the record, first single "Vision of Sin," premiered by Baeble Music, can be streamed/shared here.
What began in 2011 as a basement party band in the pits of Allston, MA, has since relocated to Brooklyn, NY where the collective has honed their garage-soul sound with a bubbling mixture of rock, psychedelia, and a touch of spaghetti western drama. Lighting up New York City clubs and DIY spaces, as well as the finest basement venues coast to coast, Evolfo has cut wide tracks through the U.S., gaining initiates and devotees every time they cram onto a stage and deliver their raucous live show.
On Last of the Acid Cowboys, the band melts down decades worth of eclectic and bizarro records and puts on wax a house shaking mix of garage rock, psych soul, spiritual funk and ecstatic freakout. Like the faithful crate-diggers who have come before them, Evolfo mined the past for analog sounds and grooves that history left on the shelf. While in a few short years together, they've drawn the attention of indie rock tastemakers with their songs being selected for several films and television shows, inclusion on Spotify playlists and praise from media outlets like Impose Magazine who declared, "you fall into the depths of the lyrics within seconds," and Speak Into My Good Eye who called the band, "raucous, dark, sinister, with a warm-psych-soul energy."
