Among the newest generation of bands in the tradition of West Coast psychedelia, Triptides have blossomed into the role of elegant adventurers. Led by guitarist, keyboardist and singer Glenn Brigman, with drummer Brendan Peleo-Lazar and bassist/guitarist Stephen Burns, the trio is continually discovering their sound through a complex map of familiar influences and bold choices in tonality, structure and texture. As a trio on stage and in the studio, Triptides have opened up a new sonic world. Their live sound is bold, dynamic, synchronized chaos. On their records, they are adventurous and surprising—winning Shindig! magazine’s Single of the Year with the undeniably heady “Nirvana Now”—and forging a unique array of other singles throughout 2019 and 2020. Triptides’ new LP Alter Echoes, forthcoming from the acclaimed Alive Naturalsound Records, captures the trio at their strongest yet: at Hollywood’s Boulevard Studios—a room that has experienced sessions from The Standells' Dirty Water, Pink Floyd’s The Wall, and Steely Dan’s Aja. That history and spirit is gloriously evident on Alter Echoes, which is a powerful blend of Floyd, Love, Badfinger and beyond. It is with this album that Triptides reveal themselves as the well-travelled adventurers they have become by continuing to push the edges of the definition of psychedelic.
