Automatic Age is EWEB’s first official release. Though just five songs, the EP highlights the group’s explosive sound, mirroring what you might expect to hear in a live set. While drawing influence from a wide variety of artists, EWEB’s sound is bold and original. Automatic Age showcases the band’s “commanding, melodic songwriting and tonal variety” (Obscure Sound), as well as their ability to perform in the studio. Currently the group is workshopping new material in anticipation of their upcoming summer tour.
Aaron Space & his Terrestrial Underlings is a five piece experimental soul act composed of keyboardist/vocalist Elihu Knowles, guitarist Dylan Ransley, bassist Quinn Girard, keyboardist/saxophonist Hayden Dekker, and drummer Ryan Higley. Based in Berkeley, CA, the group’s shared background as close childhood friends and jazz musicians deeply influences their soulful and experimental tunes. Their work has often been compared to a variety of artists including Jon Bap, Sun Ra, Pulgas, Os Mutantes, King Krule, and Standing on the Corner.
Beginning in 2019 as a solo project of keyboardist Elihu Knowles, Aaron Space & his Terrestrial Underlings began attracting attention following the release of their much-lauded debut album, "Fishland" released by Portland experimental label Moon Glyph in May of 2020. To date, the group has completed two additional EP’s: 2021’s “Grid” and 2022’s “Night On Earth,” a record of experimental Big Band jazz composed for Knowles’s undergraduate thesis (released under the name “the Aaron Space Cosmic Orchestra.
Starting in 2022, the project transitioned from a solo act into its current five piece lineup. Now living together and working at the same restaurant, the members of Aaron Space are well into production of their second full length studio album and perform regularly in the Bay Area, at venues such as Bottom of the Hill, Eli’s Mile High Club, the Ivy Room, the Elbo Room, and a monthly residency at the Little Hill Lounge.
