Mild High Club is the solo project and live band helmed by Alex Brettin, a Los Angeles-based musician originally from Chicago.
The debut Mild High Club album, Timeline, was released on Stones Throw in 2015. A year later, Stones Throw released the more ambitious second LP, Skiptracing, which includes the certified-Gold single ‘Homage’. In 2017, Brettin collaborated with Australian psychedelic group King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard on the album Sketches of Brunswick East.
In 2021, the third LP, Going Going Gone, was released. The album is the product of the touring musician’s itinerant life. It’s a record that’s worldly in more senses than one, traversing genres from jazz, electronic music, and Brazilian folk and avantgarde to AOR and psychedelic rock. The result is an ambitious, complex record that speaks directly to an accelerated, unpredictable, and confusing time.
Mild High Club has performed live all around the world and played to packed crowds of fans at festivals like Coachella to Tropicalia. Brettin and the Club will be touring internationally in 2022
