“They want to believe the Universe is an elegant universe—and it’s not so elegant. It’s a Rube Goldberg machine.”After releasing the 2008 critically acclaimed Old Home Movies with The Botticellis, San Francisco-based Alexi Glickman (Sandy) spent time touring and recording with Little Wings before forming Sandy’s in 2012. Fourth Dementia, his debut album for Um Yeah Arts, features ten sun-bleached pop paens in the tradition of Chris Bell and Big Star.Recorded by Glickman in garages and bedrooms in the Sunset district of San Francisco, Fourth Dementia features the talents of Zack Ehrlich (Sonny & the Sunsets, Vetiver, The Botticellis), Burton Li (Citay, The Botticellis), Ryan Browne (Sonny & the Sunsets, The Botticellis), Blythe Foster (The Botticellis), Jeremy Black (Apollo Sunshine) and Nick Aives (Range of Light Wilderness).Um Yeah Arts is a new arts and music collective founded by California-based painter, sculpter, photographer and filmmmaker Thomas Campbell. Campbell has mounted solo exhibitions in New York, Paris, Tokyo, Denmark, The Netherlands, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Morocco.
