Jeffertitti’s Nile “Mountain Jam”

I’ve wanted to post about this band for a while. Jeffertitti’s Nile are a bunch of spacey hippies that live out in Topanga Canyon, which for those of you who are not up on your Southern Californian stereotypes that’s where all the hippies and burnouts live, and all cool “bohemian” types. It’s a generally cool place. Sometimes their recorded stuff is kind of flat (and maybe on the cheesy side) but they put on an amazing live show, they’re really an awesome band with one of the stupidest names ever but give them a chance. Musically it’s like 60s rock/stoner/psych/folk/obvious drug use- but super earthy and rich. Also surprisingly catchy when they’re up to it. They’re talented folks, even if Moon Flower and the gang make sense like less than 40% of the time.  I know I’m  half insulting them but actually if you get a chance to see them live you should and if you wanna buy the record you should do that too, it’s worth it. I definitely recommend grabbing their live recording from when they played live on KSPC 88.7 because it’s really excellent and you can pay what you want for it. Like you can pay nothing if you want. Their best song is on that one, it’s called “S∆ME THING BLUES” but it was too large a file so tumblr won’t let me share it with you.
