On Saturday, January 13th the Community Center for the Performing Arts proudly welcomes The Third Mind to the WOW Hall.
The Third Mind
California-based supergroup, The Third Mind, will release their second album, The Third Mind
2 on October 27 via Yep Roc Records. Featuring an all-star eclectic ensemble of like-minded musicians–Jesse Sykes (acoustic guitar, vocals); Dave Alvin (electric guitar); Victor Krummenacher (bass guitar); David Immerglück
(guitar/harmonium/mellotron); and Michael Jerome (drums/percussion)– The Third Mind 2 reflects the band members varied musical histories with a “no safety parachute” recording approach using free-form studio techniques, no rehearsals, no preconceived arrangements, and recording spontaneous group improvisations live in studio.
The six-song set, which runs the length of three LP sides, showcases songs written in the 1960s including, “Groovin’ is Easy,” “Why Not Your Baby,” “Sally Go Round The Roses,” among others, and an original composition, “Tall Grass,” written by Jesse Sykes and Dave Alvin for the album. Available for pre-order on CD, Digital and LP formats, the fourth LP side features The
Third Mind Mandala etching by Tony Fitzpatrick.
The group’s 2020 self-titled debut garnered critical praise including American Songwriter who noted it “exceeded anyone’s expectations,” Glide Magazine hailed it as a “mind-blowing experience,” and PopMatters exclaimed “expansive, adventurous music.”
