Outer Embassy is a fairly new Oakland band formed by a trio of Bay Area vets: Aaron Deer (Daring Ear, John Wilkes Booze, TV Mike), Graham LeBron (Rogue Wave, you may know him as DJ Golden Gram), and Josh Miller (Wrong Words, Extra Classic). The three kicked things off with a 45 release, that was recorded by LeBron. Interestingly, there’s no guitars in this band, creating a sound that LeBron says “was born from the desire to find a distinct crossing point of 70s Krautrock experimentalism, West-African soul rhythms, and sonic space synthery.” The record was recorded and produced by LeBron in his studio, and they say an album is in the works. Listen to “Lights Out” and “Outer Orbit” below, and catch them with The Mystery Flavors (who also sound great, by the way) and Austin’s Grape St.
