NYC based psych-pop trio American Royalty had an eventful 2013, releasing their popular Prismatic and subsequent Prismatic Remixes EP’s, the latter featuring Jerome LOL, Kaytranada, Urulu, Romaj and Drop The Lime. With a similarly large 2014 ahead, the band ( Marc Gilfry, Billy Scher and Matt Ungson) are performing a headline show at Brooklyn’s Baby All Right on Thursday 13th February, accompanied by Ghenis Hans. As a precursor to the show, American Royalty have remixed fellow Brooklynites Body Language, chopping up their jam “Well Absolutely” with signature American Royalty percussion. You can listen to the remix via THUMP HERE, and grab a free download of the stellar effort over at the band’s Facebook page.

Mr. Billy Scher has embarked on a solo career to complement his budding future with his incredible psyche-rock band, American Royalty. He just dropped off his new tune ‘U.C.Me’ — extremely diverse in its musical genre with hints of Garage that I attribute to his move to Brooklyn about a year ago. If you’re in NY this thursday, be sure to swing by his CMJ Showcase at The Flat in Brooklyn for Doom Dab, the label he runs with Aha Raw. I’m sure it will be smashing good times.
My favorite psyche-rock experimental group, American Royalty, is preparing for their massive release of the ‘Prismatic Remixes EP’ out July 9th on Guns In the Sun Records, featuring the likes of Jerome LOL, Kaytranada, Urulu, Steffi Graf, Drop the Lime, & Romaj. The amount of up-and-coming talent associated with this EP is downright ridiculous. Grab your knickers, fill up some chi chi, and get ready for the boogie woogie. First up is the deep funk mix by wonder duo Steffi Graf with just the right amount of vocal interlude right in the middle. Groove with your hips and talk with your hands.
We all know the beauty Toro Y Moi has constructed on his latest studio album “Anything In Return”, so now it’s time for a funky twist. Our LA based friends Richnuss have done just that. Richnuss is the playful project between cousins Peter Nussbaum, founder of Guns in the Sun Records, & Billy Scher of psych-rock legends, American Royalty. The infectious grooves of this song don’t deviate much from the original except for adding some funk and a dance kick. With the AR infusion expect to taste a little psyche-rock drizzled in. Its a beautiful mixture and take on an already beautiful song. Keep an eye on these cats in the future.
My favorite psych-rock experimental group is at it again. American Royalty just released their highly anticipated EP entitled Prismatic, on Guns in the Sun Records, and it is quite the harmonious gem with sweeping sound waves and infectious hooks. No 2 songs alike, each spectacularly different and moving in their own way. The music depth and versatility is extremely apparent in this album, and apparent upon your first listen. I’m confident you’ll be back for much more.
Quote by American Royalty regarding the track “Hungry”:
“Hungry is one of the first songs that we ever wrote in a live setting rather than a studio. We’re very excited about the way its transitioned into a recorded number, but honestly for us, its always been about that heavy bass hitting you in the chest. So turn it up.”

The southern-cal homegrown indie electro band American Royalty recently released a huge remix package for their newest singles. The Matchstck Remixes EP comes loaded with 6 wildly different remixes of 3 original tracks: 2 bassline driven versions by dirtybird’s own J.Phlip, a deep techno side from Bang Gang’s Light Year, and 3 breakthrough productions from young guns Richnuss, Stryker Matthews, and Slates.
The J.Phlip and Light Year remixes are of course top notch, but my favorite is the ‘high brow deep house with a garnish of disco’ mix by Richnuss (comprised of Billy Scher of American Royalty and Peter Nussbaum of Guns In The Sun). You decide – the EP is completely for FREE DOWNLOAD from their facebook page!
