Sam Flax

Pulling from 1960s psychedelia, 1970s rock and roll and new wave of the 1980s, Sam Flax is an artist from Berkeley who operates in the realm of lo-fi pop. Submerged in and inspired by playlists from past decades, he spent six years recording in his bedroom and finally emerged in 2012 with his debut album, Age Waves. The record offers both synthpop and guitar rock flavors, with a healthy amount of reverb weaving both sides of his sound together. After colorful performances at the Noise Pop Festival and Austin’s South By Southwest, Sam Flax is bringing his burning tunes back to San Francisco, where he’ll be joining New York-based psych pop project Foxygen at Brick & Mortar.
