Rising from the ashes of the popular Bay Area lo-fi psychedelic collective the Shimmer Kids Underpop Association, the newly minted Society of Rockets blend indie rock, folk, and country into a reverb-heavy style of chamber folk that tips its hat to acts as diverse as Galaxie 500, the Jesus and Mary Chain, and Gram Parsons. Led by singer/songwriter Joshua Babcock, the society consists of Robin Wageman, Mike Evans, David Isbister, Lorelei David, Adam Dobrer, Justin Walsh, David Dunstan, and Steve Wertheim, all of whom are multi-instrumentalists. Their debut recording, Sunset Homes, was released on the Underpop label in 2004.
