Dig On Some New American Psych…….Meet, Young Creatures

young creatures

First thoughts…stoney trippy haze , getting lost in the space created between vocals and psych guitars. Safe to say Young Creatures are rooted in Indie Rock with some serious leanings into all things psychedelic . Well written tunes, tight band, if you are like me and you’re digging on all the new psych going on right now, add Young Creatures to the list of Bands to keep an eye on. Their first full length LP comes out in September so maybe we can get them to introduce it to us here at 50thirdand3rd.com….Good stuff!!

Meet The Band

Hi, our name is….

Young Creatures.

And our sound might be best described as….

A psychotropic tea party attended by anthropomorphic beast-men, in a seaside

setting where the sky often turns an unpredictable color.

We are…..

Mike Post (vocals/guitar), Andrew Gleason (guitar/vocals), Spencer King (bass),

Michael Escalante (drums).

We are originally from…..

Los Angeles, CA. Though Mikey (Escalante, drums) is the only native Californian. Mike,

Spencer, and Andrew moved to LA from Long Island, Massachusetts, and Philadelphia


Who are some that have an influence on your sound??

We all love The Beatles and Zeppelin. Between the four of us, we listen to everything.

Together we are big into Tame Impala and The Evil One by Roky Erickson.

The first time we met was…..

After placing classified ads for “Lonely People,” we met at a spa where we were

impressed with one another for getting out of bed that morning.

We knew we were going to be a Band when………

Mike locked the bulkhead and said, “write the hits.”

Before starting the band we were employed as…….

We’re all still employed. Mike works as a recording engineer. Spencer and Andrew work

in television post production. Mikey works in the ultrasound department at LA Children’s

Our craziest gig ever was….

We played at a laundromat with a Japanese band.

The first song we wrote was…….

“All The Days Keep Marching On.” It’s on our first and self-titled EP. It’s got a nice bass

line and some jangly guitars.

It’s about……

The perpetual struggle between an artist’s taste and his own ability.

What tunes are you currently jamming to…

We are currently mixing our first full-length album, so we’ve been listening to our own

songs a lot more than what might generally be considered “cool.” We work out of Mike’s

home studio, and we’ve had friends who didn’t realize we were working at first. They’d

say, “Oh! I thought you were just sitting around listening to your own music.”

What are some of the 1st songs you remember listening to that made you say, that’s what I want

to do

For each of us it was more of an overall appreciation of music that built up at different

moments in our lives.

When you are touring and have some time off , where could we find you..

…wasting all the show money at a Chinese restaurant. Or, getting kicked out of our

hotel for repeated noise complaints and calls to the police.

The one thing we want you to remember while your listening to us

If you like what you hear, reach out and make a connection. It will mean the world to us.

Listen to some music….
