The Stevenson Ranch Davidians - "Holy Life"

Somehow The Stevenson Ranch Davidians have escaped my notice up until now. I feel bad, but I'm going to pretend that it's ok since they haven't released an album since 2009 (even though my main knowledge of music pre-dates 2009...). The most obvious band to compare them to would be The Brian Jonestown Massacre, based on their name and the fact that the two bands share guitarist Rob Campanella. Both bands also fit snugly into the psychedelia genre, although, based on their new song "Holy Life," The Stevenson Ranch Davidians are a little less rockin' and more pure psychedelia. It's trippy as hell without being hippie-esque. The video for the song features found footage of adults and children square dancing in the 50s or 60s with red, white, and blue and Illuminati imagery shown over the footage.

You can watch the video for "Holy Life" below. The Stevenson Ranch Davidians' first album since 2009, Amerikana, will be released on June 9 via Picture in My Ear Records. You can pre-order it now through Bandcamp. For more on The Stevenson Ranch Davidians, check out their website.
