Impuritan is an experimental rock collective from San Francisco consisting of Alex Eliopoulos & a fluid lineup of musicians. Most recent key collaborators are David Molina (Transient, Ghosts & Strings, TAU) and Pepe Abad (La Ira De Dios). Impuritan combines live instrumentation, loops, and samples to create lush walls of sound. Since 2011, Impuritan has toured the US & Europe performing at music venues, art galleries, festivals, and alternative/outdoor spaces – often with projections & visuals. Impuritan has released five albums on Distant Spore Records (their own label) with consistent airplay on KALX, KZSU, KFJC, KXLU, and positive reviews from The Bay Bridged, Pow Magazine, KQED, Freq, Heavy Blog Is Heavy, and globally. "Qa Ch'umilal" – the most recent full-length – is an enticing evolution of ever-dedicated sonic experimentalism around a core of noise rock, psychedelia, post-punk, shoegaze, and surf. It delves into familiar & unexplored territories of the mind in just under 40 minutes. Impuritan is a sonic embodiment of life, death, love, hate, space, time, evolution and extinction. An abstract dream or visceral nightmare. In stereo. Wellspring eternal.
