LISTEN

“. . . Shoegaze meets retro audio stimulation, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club dipped in the haze of a mid-Seventies summer." MOJOPHENIA MUSIC

“Alternately spacey and corrosive, Ancient River seems at one with Bay Area revivalists the Brian Jonestown Massacre, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and to an even greater extent, anti-flower children Assemble Head In Sunburst Sound.”ANABLOG BY ROBBIE HILSON

GUEST CONTRIBUTOR TO LITTLE UTOPIA MARCH 2014

 

[Editor's Note: Alex Cordova is at the very beginning of a tour with his band Ancient River. After talking with him about his upcoming tour a few weeks ago, we thought it would be interesting for our readers if Alex would chronicle his time on the road, especially since many of us will never know what that experience is like. So, as the tour progresses, Alex will be updating all of us on the music, sights, food, stories, musings about the tour and whatever else comes to his mind.
