      Dirtbag Block of Rock [The Kaleidoscope Kid]

      Dirtbag Block of Rock [The Kaleidoscope Kid]

      Dirtbag Rogalsky got a chance to catch up with The Kaleidoscope Kid after a run in at the Happens Radio Convention in Las Vegas, NV earlier this year.

       

      The Kaleidoscope Kid is a Phoenix, Arizona native that grew up on skateboarding, visual art, and outdoor escapism. The diversity of his activities and surroundings translated into a varied love for music, bringing about a sonic landscape in his work that echoes his passions and interests.

      Although a true newcomer to the music scene, Kaleidoscope’s discography leaps and bounds between spaces, leaning on his charisma to bring the listener along for the ride. A fan of an extensive catalog of inspirations that span from Beck, Pink Floyd, to Bob Marley and Sublime— his work is a reflection of intentionality and passion for the craft. Taking pieces of his life and translating them into his sound has helped Kaleidoscope create an ethereal world that’s equal parts relatable and entrancing.

      Kaleidoscope’s voice is sure to resonate with many and inspire a new trajectory of music-making that breaks the customary rules of genre. Thankfully, as we all know, there are some rules that are begging to be broken.

      Kaleidoscope recently signed to indie powerhouse label Suburban Noize Records and is working alongside the label to create his debut album, developing and fine-tuning his musicianship for his broadened audience. This positive new chapter in his career brings Kaleidoscope into the deeper pools of the music scene, which is sure to expand his discography as well as his fan base.

      His first single under his new label deal with Suburban Noize was “Hold Up”, which continues to gain momentum with his edgy vocals and idiosyncratic flows. The song now has surpassed one million streams on Spotify, as more and more fans are converted by The Kaleidoscope Kid’s genre-blending artistry. The music video for the song plays like a cinematic homage to Breaking Bad, with the singer wrestling with a bad trip and burying himself — or his former self — in a shallow desert grave.

      We first crossed paths with CROBOT at the 2023 #HAPPENS Radio Convention. A group of absolute goobers with whom we became fast friends. We had the honor of chatting with them recently about crop dusting Taco Bell farts, volcano sauce, their current tour with Steel Panther, and their new single titled Golden (a tribute to Chris Cornell). This episode is hilarious.

      Artist Bio: Zacky Sickness started in 2018 after Zack moved back to his hometown of Joseph, OR and couldn’t find a band wanting to do his style of music. Which made him starting to make instrumentals on “Apple Loops” as he worked on his first solo album. At the very end of writing that he looked up “Royalty free heavy metal instrumentals” and found Jacob Lizotte. Zack had him make 2 tracks for his first album, and has been working with him ever since. Creating 2 albums together Now Zack has just released a brand new E.P. With Jacob Lizotte once again handling all the instrumentals and mixing and mastering. The E.P. “Storm the Gates” is once again exploring many different genres and influences in both lyric wise and musically. Zack explored new boundaries with songs such as “Life is Just a Airport” where he challenged himself to write a fun drinking Irish punk song. Zack has said about the song “I’ve gotten comfortable with writing about my depression and anxiety, and often feel if I try to write something happy or uplifting it comes off as corny, so I wanted to challenge myself and make a song that people can party and have a fun time to.” Another song where he tried something new was the song “Zoltar’s Fortune” which is a song about a fortune card he got from a “Zoltar” machine that was eerily accurate to what he was going through in life, and the first verse of the song comes straight from the fortune card he got. Songs like “Storm the Gates” talk about war, while “Will Anyone Be There?” Talks on self doubt and being unmotivated by people ignoring the songs he puts all his effort in, while “The Liars and Thieves” is about the sharks of the music industry, about people who prey on small musicians with broken promises all to get their money.

      Dirtbag Block of Rock [1967]

      Dirtbag Block of Rock [1967]

      Portland-based four piece hard-rock band, 1967, runs on blood pumping energy—it’s all denim jackets, tattoos, and the aches of bumping up against people in a thrashing crowd. Their performance strips away excess and maximizes the mantra of living life on life’s terms. For fans of the Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Pennywise, and Breaking Benjamin, there’s a new band to blast in your Camaro. That is, as you’re leaving your boring life behind and driving to an incredible view.

      1967 is the brainchild of Jaime Reynolds, who leads on guitar and vocals. Today, the band includes a blend of southwest and pacific northwest-based musicians. The result is a massive sound unashamed in its mission—to release the tension of life with the spirit of rock, in all its hooky glory. 1967 tours the northwest and southwest regularly, offering polished and memorable live performances.

      Listen to 1967 anywhere music streams online or purchase merchandise by emailing jkrprozack@gmail.com with your personal request of custom made 1967 merchandise.

      Their latest 5-song EP produced by 40 million record selling producer, John Kurzweg (Creed, Puddle of Mudd, Godsmack) will be out soon. Stay tuned…
