“Hearing Ancient River‘s lush, expansive sound, it’s hard to imagine that it’s just two guys. Starting out as the bedroom brainchild of lead singer James Barreto, the Gainesville duo are getting ready to release their newest album Keeper of the Dawn. Taking cues from contemporaries like Temples and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, new single “This Is The Time” finds the duo in a magical haze. Washed-out drums and fuzz pedals do the trick, but the ringing reverb on Barreto’s rhythm guitar really gives the song shape.” SPIN Magazine

“...Ancient River serves a delightful mind fuck with This Is The Time! Like a bit heavier and dirtier personality of Tame Impala’s eerie fuzziness, this reverb obsessed duo enslaves with its captivating songwriting all the mystical and hazy psychedelics in a startling kaleidoscopic frame!" SOUND INJECTION

IS/IS - Portland, OR
http://is-is.bandcamp.com/
'At times Is/Is can sound like a lost gem from the Creation hey-day, infusing their music with a sense of mystery and brooding atmosphere. Psychedelic and shoegaze influences emerge throughout the catalogue: the atmospheric tones of early Verve, a droning pulse reminiscent of Loop. Some songs bounce gleefully forward with a pop sensibility, while some keep a cool distance and move with a language distinctly their own. This is Is/Is’ strength: not simply a sum of their influences, but to put that ineffable “wizard-rock” quality on their music.'
