Abe Vigoda / Grooms

Part of the LA scene centered around The Smell, Abe Vigoda emerges from a shared background of punk, no wave, and pop. Alternating from melodic and tropical to hardnosed and heavy, Abe Vigoda's sound is equal parts Beefheart and My Bloody Valentine with a haunting pulse and a DIY attitude all its own.

Grooms are Travis Johnson, Emily Ambruso, and Gabriel Wurzel, three friends who play a structurally mutilated brand of noise-pop featuring blissful interplay, sonic experimentation, and song destruction. Recordings have showcased sounds from broken noise-surf to campfire-seance drone. Grooms (formerly The Muggabears) continue to craft songs filled with beauty, gloom, and irony-free whimsy.
