Gardens and Villa

Galactic fever? Damn right. Xylophonic harmonies will combine with out-of-this-world vocals when Santa Barbara rockers Gardens & Villa take over The Fonda with their extraterrestrial tunes on May 7th and 8th alongside Tycho.

I was sold on Gardens & Villa’s self-titled debut LP after simply hearing “Cruise Ship.” That song puts to rest a false concept that a guy wearing an archer’s backpack filled with flutes can’t create some serious baby-makin’ music, and the group’s new album, Dunes, sticks with what works. Sultry, funky keys and that wooden flute sound that Gardens fans have fallen in love with lay the foundation to ’80s-friendly tracks on the effort. Be sure to pick up your tickets now for their shows at The Fonda!
