Though the “Garcia” in the name of New Jersey cosmic indie jam band Garcia Peoples isn’t an implicit reference, it’s clear that the band has spent some time listening to Jerry & co.’s deeper catalog. Starting in the late 2010s, the band took notes from a canon of classic acid-washed searchers, including pillars like the Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers, and Canned Heat, but also wove the influence of less-championed acts like NRBQ into their unique update on psychedelic sprawl. The group began as a quartet but expanded just before the release of their 2018 debut album, Cosmic Cash.
