Northern Cal combo The Incubators have a well-seasoned, good-natured, pop-Americana sound that would be ideal on any winery’s stage. “Who wants to be normal?,” they ask on the fanciful “Apollo” which namechecks a scad of ancient gods and civilizations, complemented by some nice guitar noodling. Next, with its hand-drum percussion and idyllic Eagles-like vocal blends, “Petaluma Wind” is tailor-made for the winery experience as it conjures a refreshing breeze of sights and sounds. Finally, the band puts its stamp on the Grateful Dead’s “Fire On The Mountain,” infusing the tune with the funky flavors of wah wah guitar as well as previously unpublished lyrics.
