Harlan is funky fresh and fun. I saw him live at The Satellite not too long ago and wrote a midnight review of the show (check out review here). The music still ignites thoughts of old school 70’s Sesame Street, Wonder Years, Block Parties, and Roller Discos. He is fun, the band is fun. The music is certainly different and refreshing amongst the countless other indie rock, surf inspired, and/or shoe gaze psychedelic music (which I all love) circulating the Los Angeles music scene. The first time I heard Harlan I was completely surprised, like I had stepped into a gold plated time machine, dialed into 1978 and was more than happy to go on this little musical excursion.
This month (May 2012) Harlan has a Monday night residency at The Echo and Full Length Album coming out soon.
Check out more of Harlan’s music on his website.
