Pennyblack (www.pennyblackmusic.co.uk): “Emotive, and done with so much dedication and devotion to old reggae, may appeal to those who enjoy the music of the mid 1970s from acts such as Big Star and Dwight Twilley.”
Thrasher Magazine Extra Classic Feature Interview (April 2012): “Often times there are good reasons for doing things the hard way, like recording an album all-analog and mixing it by hand…”
Extra Classic is a band based out of San Francisco, CA. Recording in their analog studio in San Francisco, lead songwriters, Alex and Adrianne deLanda, formed Extra Classic based on their mutual love of classic Jamaican dub and psychedelic rock and roll. After self-releasing their own 45rpm vinyl singles, the Roots/Psychedelic inspired debut Extra Classic full-length album, “Your Light Like White Lightning, Your Light Like A Laser Beam,” was released by Burger Records in 2012 on cassette (currently sold out). Manimal Vinyl (Los Angeles, CA) released the album on gatefold vinyl LP format.
The Extra Classic live band consists of the following players. Adrianne deLanda (vocals and keyboards; formerly Adrianne Verhoeven) released an album under the name, “Dri,” titled, “Smoke Rings” in 2007. Adrianne was a member of The Anniversary from 1997-2003 (Vagrant Records). Alex deLanda (bass & guitar) is a song writer/producer who has worked with The Papercuts (Sub Pop), The Donkeys (Dead Oceans), and Casiotone for The Painfully Alone among others. Alex maintains an analog tape recording studio, Nopal Recording, in San Francisco where all Extra Classic songs are produced. Josh Adams (drums) has played with bands such as Mike Andrews, Linda Perhacs, and Zander Schloss & Sean Wheeler. Josh Miller (guitar) also plays in bay-area based band, The Wrong Words (Trouble In Mind). Aaron Deer (keys) co-founded the cassette label, Magnetic South. Extra Classic is booked by Robin Taylor at Inland Empire Touring.
