It’s understandable that comparisons would be drawn between Sydney-based psychedelic trio Jagwar Ma and their compatriots Tame Impala (anyone who’s listened to Lonerism ought to know that such a comparison is pretty lofty praise), but you’d be mistaken to write off the former as more of the same from Down Under.
As part of KCRW’s Twilight Concert Series, Jagwar Ma will be taking the same beachside stage that Yuna, PAPA, and other notable fast-rising music stars have been rocking out on every Thursday this summer. With their signature mix of whimsical tunes seamlessly blended with percussive synths, Jagwar Ma’s set is sure to be a veritable dance party.
Joining them on August 7th will be the delightfully experimental Fascinator and KCRW DJ Jason Bentley.
The event is free, but it probably wouldn’t hurt to RSVP juuust in case.
