Son Cats are a psychedelic blues-rock group hailing from Portland, OR and Hartford, CT. The Cats have also lived in the backseat of a Honda Accord and done time in Missoula, Montana and Brooklyn, New York. Alex Reed Wilson howls and rips on the guitar and Jasmine Dreame Wagner thrashes the drums.

The Cats' next 7" - "O'Dell/1971" - is set to drop on January 11th on For Arbors / For Satellites. The high-impact duo invoke these kinds of sounds: Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers watching Kurosawa's Seven Samurai, The Vaselines watching Dock Ellis try to bean every member of the 1974 Cincinnati Reds, CCR making a soundtrack for a Clint Eastwood movie written by Arthur C. Clarke, The Shaggs muscling The Shags in an arm wrestling match, Syd Barrett taking Alice Cooper's python out for ice cream.

Son Cats' 7", CD, and two EPs were self-recorded and mixed by the band using Wilson's Tascam 488 8-track machine. "O'Dell/1971" was mastered straight to vinyl by Roger Seibel at SAE Mastering in Phoenix, AZ. The digital download was mastered by Carl Saff at Saff Mastering in Chicago, IL. The artwork was printed at Pinball Publishing in Portland, OR.
