Flashing Red Lights:: Bridges

Mack Slevin began writing and recording his own songs under the moniker of Flashing Red Lights in 2005, and Slevin recently made Flashing Red Lights his main project with the help of Jason Wrightsman (Guitar, Banjo), Mike Hendry (Guitar, Lap Steel) from the Absentee, Zach Schrock (Drums) from Casxio and Ben Welch (Bass, Vocals). FRL has evolved from stripped down singer-songwriter acoustic pieces to full band expositions that incorporate lap steel and banjo along with Slevin’s colorful guitar parts. Playing more and more around his native Los Angeles with hi-profile acts such as The Parson Red Heads, The Weather Underground, Francisco the Man and Western States Motel, Slevin and crew recently released a 7-song EP, entitled Bridges. Bridges is the first representation of FRL’s full band sound, recalling everything from Sky Blue Sky-era Wilco to The Thrills’ So Much For The City.
