"Brainwash" by La Luz
As I've written here before (for example: here), and expect that I will again, one of the brightest new lights in Seattle's indie scene is the all-women La Luz. There is a bit of '60s retro, a bit of the wall of sound, and some tasty surf guitar accents. They self-released their Damp Face EP in digital form via Bandcamp (see link below), and then released it as a cassette via Burger Records (newly restocked). And now their two-track Brainwash single is out on Suicide Squeeze. Showing the great acceleration possessed by muscle cars of the same vintage as some of their influences, La Luz now have earned some national recognition and currently are thrilling the east coast of the US. Here is their new video for "Brainwash" --
La Luz are Shana Cleveland (guitar), Marian Li Pino (drums), Abbey Blackwell (bass), and Alice Sandahl (keys).
