Hipsterphonic is a truly unique local band that has a sound they can truly call their own. This four-member group succeeds in bringing a guitar rock sound to the stage that manages to incorporate influences of reggae and hip-hop. The overall result is quite good; if ever there was a local rock band that could inspire people to dance, this is it. Guitarist Stu Aldridge gets so many neat sounds out of his instrument that it’s easy to forget that the members only use guitar, bass, and drums for their sound. Aldridge comes up with guitar riffs that are truly perfect for the versatile sound and it is always fun to watch him play through all the different effects pedals. The band’s rhythm section is tight, as well; L.A. has so much energy onstage, it’s easy to feel out of breath just watching him. - Playback:STL Magazine - April 06

Hipsterphonic
If there's one thing that disrupts an enjoyable walk down Delmar Boulevard, it's the horde urging you to sign this petition, save your soul before it's too late, attend their concert, visit their store. But last fall Hipsterphonic handed out fliers for their upcoming—and final—concert of the year. As we began to crumple the paper, we stopped, read it, laughed out loud, made copies for our co-workers and hung them up around the office. "Please join Hipsterphonic as we play our last show of the year. One of us has a 'drug problem'...and 'needs help.' So don't miss out on one last night of hardcore partying[...]. Party will be going from 9 p.m. until we blackout." Three stick figures were giving a fourth an emotional send-off, tears falling and fingers flashing horns as Figure No. 4 toted his belongings, hobolike, toward a building labeled "REHAB." Lead vocalist Ruman Kazi reports that guitarist Stu Aldridge is now out of rehab, and that the band recently debuted a new bass player and headlined a show at Mississippi Nights. Wonder if there was a flier for that one.

P.F.I.C. is something that you will probably have to see a few times before you can really appreciate what is coming off stage. At first taste, you may really enjoy it, but if not, there will at least be something going on that will peak your interest and be there for you to hang on to while the rest of it falls into its place (in your soul). And if there is no place (in your soul) for their doings to make a home, watching them try can still be entertaining and occasionally laughable. www.myspace.com/pficband - Cicero's Venue Newsletter

Bio

This is a band that refuses to settle. Each musician is wholly dedicated to their craft and tirelessly pursues a stronger acumen with their respective instrument. It is this dedication that enables the players to explore and interpret a wide range of musical influences.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Paired with enthusiastic passion, the foursome excitedly experiment with the each members’ distinct musical backgrounds and interests to create a uniquely diverse listening experience.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Performing live is the fuel that feeds this band and it is obvious through their shows that the stage is where they belong and excel. They are unafraid of experimenting with songs and arrangements live and are developing a reputation for having the precious ability to temper and tailor their material for the crowd involved, revealing that not only are they maturing as musicians, but also as entertainers.
