East Bay indie rock band Desoto Reds features literate and catchy songwriting, unpredictable arrangements, and psychedelic lap steel and organ. Desoto Reds have released multiple albums, made it into the CMJ top 200 once, and have played countless shows in the Bay Area, including, many moons ago, an opening slot with Of Montreal. We're too rocking to be jangle pop, too melodic to be prog rock, too angular for classic rock, and not young enough to be emo.
Reformed in 2021, the Reds have lots of new songs, recorded by a 16-year-old producer named AddieSteri. The band features Alex Sterling (guitar/vocals), Jeremiah Johnson (drums), Scott Yowell (lap steel and keyboards), and Dan Lieberman (bass).
