Description:
Alice Sweet Alice (ASA) — based in Kansas City, Missouri—USA — was conceived on Halloween of 2007. ASA, a 5-piece band founded by Scott Martinez on bass and vocals, released its’ first two albums with pianist and vocalist Ali Kat and online collaborative guitarist Jeffrey Galios. Following extensive tryouts in mid-2009, Billy Brown joined ASA on drums, with Alan Hicks and Travis Lathrop completing ASA’s lineup on guitars. ASA released their sophomore album, “Moloko & Ultraviolence”, in May 2009. This is the pile-driven, powerhouse follow up to their premier release, “First Light”, released in 2008. Both LP’s are available for sale through American independent record label Cauldron Soundwerx, and in Bulgaria (with worldwide distribution) through AMAdea Records. ASA is also working with Ravenheart Music Records, and Leaping Cat Records in the UK on regional / European promotion and obtaining brick & mortar sales opportunities overseas. Finally, ASA is the first band on Cauldron Soundwerx which will be distributed into China through Cowbell Digital based in Australia.

ASA, ascribing their genera to be “Electropostpunkadelic”, creates exciting music that is truly a fusion of ASA members’ respective and diverse musical backgrounds. ASA’s unique brand of rock has been compared to the likes of Pink Floyd and the Doors for their hard-hitting rock and psychedelic tendencies, and The Floyds, Smashing Pumpkins, Clan of Xymox, Joy Division and My Bloody Valentine for their inspired use of darkwave sonic spectrums. ASA's music can be described as being complex, yet intricately textured with contrasting themes and overtones that synthesize their European and American influences, generating a sound that is both innovative and trademark. Songs vary from serene to turbulent in their aesthetic use of acoustics, found samples, electric guitar effects, and synth-composition. ASA’s live shows are enhanced with powerful displays that combine both theater and raw energy. ASA emphasizes songwriting, as dramatic lyrical performance is meshed with structured noise. With ASA’s lineup finally intact, the group is continually rehearsing and perfecting their live show for regional performances, while working with overseas partners in planning a European tour for 2010. Finally, as prolific and restless as ASA’s songwriters are, listen for new and exciting material to be offered all along the way.
