"Nico Stai has been shaking the trees in LA since the release of his CD Park Los Angeles in 2006, featuring his acoustic work. He's back with a new EP called Dead Pony that features a full band and his salacious growl. It's brooding folk rock with a Pete Yorn-like sound. I think I'm in love. Look for a new full-length from Stai soon." - My Old Kentucky Blog.
A tight and highly committed unit, their music is loud and dirty, a powerful experience that harks back to the 70's and the blues, while remaining unconfined by either one. Every Links show is an event - full of surprise and energy. They have recently released a new set of songs, the culmination of months of writing and recording. They continue to record, they are touring, working new material, playing shows all the time. From their California home, they are making themselves heard. Join them, get to know them, and spread the word (Purevolume.com).
Weird Dreams, formerly Low Flying Owls, describe their music as “the space in between day and night when everything seems all right.” While they have only played a handful of shows with this particular lineup, their music is sophisticated, energetic and danceable. Jared Southard’s Lou Reed-esque vocals lure the listener in: they’re relaxed yet full of confidence at the same time. His vocals blend well with the fuzz guitars and funky bass lines. With their interesting song structures and groove-based rock, Weird Dreams are sure to get you on your feet.
