New Garage Rock Discovery: Eureka California - Big Cats Can Swim

Eureka California is an Athens band playing delightful garage rock - British invasion-influenced stuff that is really catchy, raw and kind of psychedelic, in the vein of the Nuggets comps or, say, 13th Floor Elevators or early Pink Floyd - or jumping forward to some of the Paisley Underground stuff like Rain Parade. Big Cats Can Swim is a really good record... as in, the more I listen, the more I like.

Here's album cut "Dos Hermanos":

And here's a video of them playing out in Athens:

It's on Happy Happy Birthday To Me Records - out this week, you can order it now.
