Best Live Band (2011)

Free Moral Agents

For Free Moral Agents, more is decidedly more. Ikey Owens (keyboardist for Mars Volta) brought together the collective of Long Beach musicians (the number is ever-morphing, but fixtures include singer Mendee Ichikawa, drummer Ryan Reiff, guitarist Jesse Carzello and bassist Dennis Owens) so he could properly execute the multitude of sounds in his head. The result? A band that produce an incandescent blend of rock, trip-hop, funk, psychedelic and soul music that's perfect for getting stoned to or watching late at night with your jaw hanging open.
