The Arizona-based quartet has been jamming for more than a decade, infusing their compositions with elements of rock, reggae, ska, funk and jazz. Last year, the band’s drummer, Cameron Laforest, departed and Spafford’s previous beat-maker, Nick Tkachyk returned to the fold. The band’s most recent self-released album is 2018’s “For Amusement Only.”

Give the band credit for ingenuity. In October, the Los Angeles “dream pop” quartet released “The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack: Part 1” as a segment of a three-part project that will form their upcoming studio album.
