The 5th plateau is an improvisational & instrumental garage band in Austin, TX that plays experimental, psychedelic noise-rock/jazz ranging from spacey to spastic.Read More...
The group gradually took shape in 2004 after highschool friends Greg Nelson (guitar), Doug Germany (guitar), & Ryne Worthington (drums) began jamming together, having only begun playing their instruments less than a year prior, self taught. Refusing to ever conform to any set style, structure, or key, their signature sound is often an ever-shifting, organic-like 'stream of consciousness' type collaboration evoking shamanic journeys and tripped out vision quests. Influenced heavily by their initial love for the over-the-counter entheogen DXM & many 'research chemical' experiments & experiences together, they're truly a unique listen with a lot of chemistry, high energy, and strange vibrations.
Several tracks also include additional instrumentation from friends Justin Jordan (bass/guitar) & Luke Taylor (keyboards). The recordings are typically lo-fi and sometimes have cryptic sound clips spliced in as well as occasional post production effects for extra mind-bending surprises.
Also see "God Generator", the dark ambient noise project done by both guitarists Doug & Greg.
