Holy Wave w/ Peel Dream Magazine LIVE on the Hotel Vegas patio on Thursday, September 16th, 2021!
Holy Wave is a band of multi-instrumentalists from El Paso, Texas, USA. Since making a move to Austin in 2008, they have cemented themselves as a unique force in the national and international touring circuit. After perennial performances at Levitation (Austin Psych Fest) and countless tours and festival appearances in the USA, Europe, Latin America, and Africa, Holy Wave is poised to continue expanding into new spaces and places around the world. The band has 3 critically-acclaimed LPs and 3 EPs (The Reverberation Appreciation Society, Burger Records, Volante Discos) under their belt, with a fourth LP, Interloper, slated for release Spring 2020.
Peel Dream Magazine is the nom de plume of Los Angeles songwriter Joe Stevens, who launched the band in New York with 2018’s critically acclaimed album Modern Meta Physic. With it Stevens created a mysterious, liminal tribute to the hazy end of `90s dream-pop – a masterful mix of first-class songwriting precision and train-window sonic impressionism. Stevens played all the parts on Modern Meta Physic himself, blending live and sampled sounds into uniquely identifiable and abstractly psychedelic soundscapes. The album struck a perfect balance between DIY bedroom pop auteurism and studio wizardry and duly found its place on numerous “Best of 2018” lists.
