From the serene Pacific Northwest, The Pharmacy is a three-piece that includes Scott Yoder on guitar and vocals; Brendhan Bowers with passion behind his drums (and often seen shirtless); finally Stefan Rubicz adding some keyboards to their repertoire. This brand has been around since 2007 as an offshoot project for members who had played together before in various lineups including one lineup where there was even a cellist! They’ve done tours all over North America playing gigs such as SXSW 2014 when they shared bill space alongside Radiohead at Austin City Limits Music Festival this past weekend. The current lineup has changed frequently over the years but usually includes at least one member from each of these original groups: Scott Yoder (guitar, vocals), Brendhan Bowers (drums), Calvin Havnaer (cello), and Stefan Rubicz (keyboards). The Pharmacy’s self-titled debut album was released on May 12 of 2009.
In 2002, the Pharmacy was established on Vashon Island, Washington, by Scott Yoder and Brendhan Bowers. Scott Yoder on guitar and vocals, Brendhan Bowers on drums, and Stefan Rubicz on keyboards formed The Pharmacy.
They made their debut in the region in 2005. The Pharmacy have toured with acts such as We Are Scientists,
Theodore Roosevelt’s War on Drugs. The Pharmacy has released three albums since its inception including Pure Caffeine (2006), Calms the Nerves and Tames the Savage Breast(2008), and Shake the Sheets (2010).
In 2011 they signed to Chicago-based label Trouble in Mind Records for a two-album deal. Their fourth studio effort ‘Dancing Outside The Fire’ was recorded at Robert Lang Studios by Seattle producer Neill Von Tally who is best known for his work with Nirvana, Superchunk, and Soundgarden. It was mixed by Phil Ek of Fleet Foxes fame. They are currently working on new songs slated for release later this year.
Matt Hunter is a member of Pharmacy and also performs and records in a side project called Fuzzy Cloaks with fellow Pharmacy member Stefan Rubicz.
With his second LP “A Fool Aloof,” Scott Yoder elevates his sensitive songcraft into fantastic heights, drawing on his childhood interest with the otherworldly and theatrical. Scoot Yoder is a Seattle-based songwriter. He has just released his second full-length album, A Fool Aloof on vinyl through Tender Loving Empire and it is available now for download or streaming via Bandcamp.
The Pharmacy introduces their new album, “The End of It All.” Psychedelic rock band The Pharmacy is back with their first new record since 2013’s “Dreamland”. Seattle-based psychedelic/indie punk/surf rock group The Pharmacy has released a new single entitled ‘Tubular’.
