Psychedelic Indie Rock Coming to Us from Seattle

November 4, 2012 - Few groups are as versatile as The Pharmacy, which Scott Yoder and Brendhan Bowers formed in 2002 as a garage-punk band before also embracing dance pop and psychedelic rock.

After classically-trained pianist Stefan Rubicz joined the Vashon Island, Washington natives in 2007, the group has maintained a steady schedule, earning positive reviews from the New Yorker and the Stranger as well as touring all over North America and Europe with Vivian Girls, Matt+Kim, and Japanther.

This episode of World Cafe: Next features tracks from the Pharmacy’s new EP Josephine, released in May on the psych-pop EP Josephines.
