Between running around the country entertaining fans and releasing tracks, The Stone Apes took a while to get you a mixtape.
After recently wrapping up a tour in support of Wolfmother and Thirsty Merc, The Stone Apes are having some down time and naturally they ended up listening to a few tracks.
The guys created their “Rage” playlist full of sounds that inspire them and told us about it.
“This playlist follows a loose genre of alternative/indie rock with a dash of psychedelia: echoing our sound and the sounds we are inspired to create.” The group said.
“It’s basically just the culmination of things that we love and have influenced us.”
“The eclectic mix of artists and sounds gave me the idea to call it Rage after the morning music program we all grew to love as kids. It just conjures up memories of foggy mornings in the cold with Devo’s “Whip It” on TV – kind of like a fever dream.
“There’s also a cheeky reference to an old sega game called ‘Primal Rage’ as the cover – another reference to rage itself and the nostalgia surrounding it. Additionally, the jacked monkey on the front seemed appropriate.
Check out the full playlist below, featuring tracks from Ballpark Music, Soccer Mommy and Spacey Jane.
Since the release of The Stone Apes’ new single To waste my timethe band caused a whisper in the thin music as it looks like they are about to take this country by storm.
