On the Radar: A Scribe Amidst the Lions

San Diego’s A Scribe Amidst the Lions describe their music as experimental pop psychedelia.  While a unifying description for the songs on their latest EP, The Lidless Kind, the convenient (and admittedly necessary) label does not adequately describe the breadth of music produced by A Scribe Amidst the Lions – and this is just an EP.  The scope of their sound ranges from barren Americana (‘Rest Gentlemen’, ‘Lidless Kind’) to neo-grunge (‘Listening In’, ‘Hot Chameleon’) to depraved saloon swingers (‘Backdoor Betty’), all peppered with a dash of glam rock and “healthy” dose of psychedelia.  Performing since 2001 (previously known as Split Infinity – had to drop that name as there were numerous suitors), A Scribe Amidst the Lions have forged a unique and tantalizing sound.
