Here’s more about this episode’s featured musicians:
Mr. Max: Mr. Max is a Los Angeles-based Indie/Punk band founded by frontman/ guitarist Max Cohen. Mr. Max was heavily influenced by the punk rock music native to the South Bay area in Los Angeles. Their sound combines these early influences with more modern sounds from the surf, psych, garage rock and indie rock worlds to create something new and original. Growing into a 3-piece band, featuring Diego Patino (It’s Butter) on drums and Johnnie Gilmore on bass, the group has been putting on high-energy shows in Los Angeles and the surrounding areas. Mr. Max recently released their new single “I Hate My Life” (featured on Spotify’s official New Noise and Noisy playlists) accompanied by an outlandish music video featuring animation by Youtuber Harvey Seasalt.
