Dumbo Gets Mad is a psychedelic pop project based Italy. It has been founded at the beginning of 2011 in Los Angeles by Luca Bergomi, with the release of his debut album Elephants at the Door. The record showed a fresh approach towards a mixture of musical styles and defined the project as psychedelic pop.
The album achieved a lot of excellent reviews on the web, and the project started to create a solid fan base all over the world, thanks to its pristine sound and style. “Plumy Tale”, the first single ever released, was nominated by Joe Tangari top 50 on Pitchfork of 2011, and “Marmalade Kids” was picked as song of the day by NPR.
After touring Italy and Europe, in 2013 a new record has been released, Quantum Leap.
This album is even more textured than the previous and it explores plenty of musical genres, resolving in a mind blowing psychedelic jam. Dumbo Gets Mad played alongside bands such as Neon Indian and
Black Lips, and one of the single on this record, “Indian Food”, became massively popular, and forged a definitive coronation of the band sound.
Thank You Neil, released in 2015, is a more soulful record, inspired by american astrophysicist, author, and science communicator Neil deGrasse Tyson.
The live recorded album shows a more elegant and minimal approach to the production and received wonderful reviews ( Stereogum, Vice … ). After 4 years of stop, in 2019 the new single “Makes You Fly” has been released with the French Label “Nice Guys”, in anticipation of a new full length album.
“Things Are Random And Time Is Speeding Up” has been released on
February 2021, and it has solidly confirmed the psychedelic nature of the project.
Dumbo Gets Mad Live band will be formed by Lorenzo Rotteglia on drums, Ivan Torelli on Bass, and Carlotta Menozzi on vocals.
Life may be cold in Chicago, but Illinois-based indie rocker Jude Shuma keeps warm with creativity and ambition. Jude first discovered his passion for music in early adolescence, finding inspiration in the melodic yet simple songwriting of legendary acts like The Beatles and Nirvana. Armed with a Boss 8-track recorder, he began to write and capture his own ideas onto tape, a hobby that has since resulted in an impressive collection of over 100 dream-fueled songs.
Jude works alone out of his studio on the west side of Chicago, where he’s preparing new music that promises to thrill the ears and stretch the minds of listeners around the world. His style is infectious, flirting with both psychedelia and pop, and filled with whimsical washed-out melodies. Outgoing, persistent, and remarkably resilient, Jude is excited for the future, optimistic about returning to the stage and eager to continue pushing his artistic boundaries. As a young natural-born creative, he’s forged his own path through the indie rock music scene, sacrificing conventional comforts and tradition to take risks and experiment with sound. But with great risks come great rewards.
Nopaleros is a 5-piece group formed in Milwaukee. Combining traditional Cumbias, Cumbias Rebajadas, and Nigerian Funk, these sonics culminate into a continuous absorbent sound that pushes encapsulating rhythms and psychedelic sonics to a dark edge.
