The Ape ∆ The Gecko Feather ∆ The Smithsonian ∆ Roger Lyve
Their sound roots from childhood, and friendship resonating from elementary afternoons where swings, fields and recess bonded the group indefinitely (of course after hiking up and down the 200-foot iceplant hill for 9 nine years accessing the playground). Harmony meets where their musical ventures differ. Live performance, countless cyphers, unannounced rehearsals and utmost respect for one another’s skill-set mount up to over a decade’s worth of recording under the DJ maestro, Roger Lyve. Both Ape and the Gecko Feather supply Lyve with acousmatic breeze and heavy conscience lyric, while the master jazzsmith and ex-local rock drummer supplies the heartbeat with complex, fitting percussion. 2014 Fall will be a leap into everyone’s playlists. Enjoy!
