Steve Taylor has played and recorded with a number of bands in his time - Rogue Wave, Vetiver, Avi Buffalo, The Botticellis and more - but he's somehow also managed to find time for his own music. Mixing psych, folk and soul into a classic-sounding pop melange, Taylor and his band are performing at The Independent on Saturday, July 30th (9pm, $10), with A B and the Sea and Benyaro.

In the above video, from the third annual Mother Hips Family Hipnic in Big Sur in May, Taylor performs a soft-pop gem joined by Andy Cabic (Vetiver), Eric Johnson (Fruit Bats) and Farmer Dave Scher.
