The Stepkids are keen on transporting you to some conflation of the 1970s and the 2070s. Pitchfork calls the band’s guitar gymnastics, synchronized dance moves, vintage songwriting, and Zappa-esque freak-outs “a music nerd’s romp through high-fidelity magic.” The three-man crew combines jazz, rock, and soul in an unforgettable show of psychedelic, energy-wired music. Far out!
