Jam 'n' Slate is a psychedelic indie band from San Diego, CA. Our name comes from combining the names of the founding members, James McNary and Slater Aiello.
With Kellen Rose, Grant Gustin, and Nathan Goff filling out the rest of the roster, we will continue our journey into creating strange psychedelic tunes for you to enjoy. We are greatly inspired by the Australian, psychedelic rock renaissance ( King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard , ORB, Pond , Tame Impala , and others) and we are the only band to write a 16 minute song about an interdimensional egg god.
"The San Diego-based genre-defying indie rock band Jam ‘n’ Slate take listeners on another sprawling psychedelic thrill ride on their latest LP 'Is There Room in the Story For Us.' This one certainly feels as if the band is aiming at a more focused and mature style, while still encompassing their neo-psych and space rock style that sounds like something straight out of the Australia psych scene. From the personal psych-pop swirls on “Time Passes, People Move” to the hypnotic psych-folk warmth on The Flaming Lips -esque “Softest Bullet,” Jam ‘n’ Slate’s latest is as rich as it is spiritual." - Floated Mag
