I just downloaded the new Reflectacles album from iTunes, “The Wiley Post e.p.” and it’s hard to sit still while I’m listening to it, it just makes you want to dance, or move or do something creative. It’s really good. Only $4.95 — go download your copy now — you’ll thank me later.

The band will appear at Willie Nelson’s 4th of July picnic at the BackYard in Austin, Texas. If you can’t see them there, they have other shows listed at their brand new website:
www.thereflectacles.com. Check it out for music, art, love, laughter, pictures, you know, things that make you feel good. They have pictures from concerts, including recent show with Willie Nelson on Maui.

“That’s one of the coolest things that’s ever happened to me,” said a member of The Reflectacles as he watched Willie Nelson walk off the stage.
Nelson made a surprise guest appearance with the band during their May 24 concert at Charley’s Restaurant & Saloon in Paia. The mini concert-within-a-concert left huge smiles on the the faces of the band members, including drummer Micah Nelson, Willie’s youngest son. The ecstatic looks were priceless — worthy of using a tag-line from a credit card commercial, even if it makes my editors and journalism profs cringe.
Micah Nelson told Rhythm & Views about The Reflectacles last summer but the focus of the conversation was on his art; Micah also is a talented visual artist. So when it came to my knowledge about the band, I have to admit, I judged a book by its cover — or its Facebook posts.
Between the band name, the rainbow prism eye-glasses they pass out at their shows and Micah’s trippy artwork, I was expecting a psychedelic, experimental, noise, performance-art type of thing.
I was wrong. Very wrong.
The Reflectacles are solid. Their music pulls from many genres and eras, giving it wide appeal. The mix of influences — and the flow of sound — evokes the spirit of a jam band. However, the Los Angeles-based band doesn’t just wander through its songs without direction. The band members’ technical prowess provides The Reflectacles with the tools to deliver a tight, bright-minded set that is seasoned and fresh at the same time.
To top it off, the members of the band members genuinely seem to enjoy what they are doing — with or without a special guest appearance by Willie Nelson. Having the musical icon join in for an extended set was a bonus for the audience — reverting to the cliché — it was “icing on the cake.” For the members of The Reflectacles, it seemed like a full-on Las Vegas-style buffet.

The Reflectacles are six debatably attractive, young lads crusading to return some level of smarts and sophistication to mainstream music. Since their formation in early 2009, they have been adding new character to the terms rock’n’roll and folk.

After composing an award-winning film soundtrack for the indie film Turn Me On Dead Man, the band has been blowing minds around the West Coast music scene.

The band has opened for such acts as Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, and Leon Russell. The Reflectacles’ debut release, The Wiley Post EP, was mixed and produced by Grammy Award winning producer Eric “E.T.” Thorngren.

The music has been featured on radio stations in LA, Texas, and Maui, as well as Sirius Radio. The band will begin its spring national tour on March 18. - High Times
