Have You Heard Fictionist?

Tune in to KRCL at 1 p.m. for an on-air performance previewing the Utah band's all-ages show tonight at the Fort Douglas' Post Theater at 7:30 p.m. Arrive on time to catch Paul Jacobsen and Libbie Linton!

Fictionist wrap their new album Invisible Hand in psychedelic interludes containing little of the dark, droning vibes driving works by contemporary psych-rockers The Warlocks and The Black Angels. The Scott Wiley-produced LP rather leans toward the sunnier, groovier end of the spectrum with soaring guitar solos topping a pile of tasty instrumental glitter—strings and moog, loops, handclaps and the occasional toy—creating an atmosphere mixed with late ’60s/early ’70s AM radio and brooding British rock (Travis comes to mind). Besides their music, Fictionist are fast gaining a reputation for being utmost professionals celebrated by festival organizers and audience members alike. Experience them in an intimate setting before they start selling out arenas.
