Pachyman Releases Album ‘The Return of…’ Today!
Today Pachyman, the dub project of LA-based multi-instrumentalist Pachy García, releases his ATO Records debut The Return of Pachyman. Pachyman, who won this year’s Latin Alternative Music Conference Discovery Award, is a one-man-band – García plays and records all of the instruments on the record himself, and his songs take influence from the old-school Caribbean reggae sound he fell in love with growing up in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
“With this project, I was looking to make positive music and radiate good energy; something to kinda disconnect from the negative things that were happening at the moment,” says García. “I am trying to make this project a service for humanity in the sense that I just wanted to shine a positive light.”
Pachyman will play a sold-out hometown record-release show at LA’s Zebulon tonight. He will make his NYC debut opening for four Black Pumas shows at Brooklyn Steel on September 13, 14, 15, and 16 and support Khruangbin on two dates in Colorado and Utah later that month. Upcoming festival appearances include Desert Daze in Perris, California in November and My Morning Jacket’s One Big Holiday in Cancun, Mexico in March of 2022.
