Background: Formerly Julian & the Lopez Dispensers, Dispensers have self released several EP’s, each of which has had a unique life of its own. With a sound that has evolved every step of the way, the band has explored alternative rock, indie, pop, experimental, and more.
The Latest: Dispensers don’t only have a new name and sound, but a new EP to broadcast it all. The three track piece is just as well crafted and interesting as the band’s previous works, so long time fans will certainly swoon over it like the others. Julian had this to say: “This past January, we went to the studio and cranked out our 3 newest songs on our self-titled EP. During that visit to the studio, we realized that our new material was a really big departure from what we used to do and we thought it merited a name change. While our older material is pretty heavily derivative of 60′s pop songs and girl group or “doo-wop” sounds, our new stuff is more modern. We love bands that can be dancy AND dreamy: Stereolab, Broadcast and the sounds of 60′s cambodian music and bollywood music. We plan to spend our summer writing and writing and gigging some around NYC, too. Perhaps by the end of the summer we will have another EP and then by the fall a tour.”
