Pacific Rat Temple Band is a new devotional-exotica outfit birthed from the brainwaves of Mr James Ferraro of The Skaters. Parts of this sound like Martin Denny plays Martian folk music, with cyborg-sad Hawaiian melodies given helium overhauls while what sounds like speedy zips of modal fuzz, waterfalls of hand-drums and endlessly beaming keyboard melodies slowly recede into the distance.
Fantastic Magic were a San Diego tropical psych folk trio. They played their first show in March 2007 at the Rosary Room and their last on September 28, 2008 at the Che Cafe. In their brief existence, they released "Witch Choir" in tape and CDR format on Abandon Ship Records and an untitled 7" on What Delicate Recordings.
