New Discovery: Public Dims

I think I've got you lot figured out. You liked Friday's outlaw rockabilly just fine, but today you woke up with bit of a hangover and thought "why isn't there any modern, lo-fi slacker twang? If Rocksteady74 was half the blogger he thinks he is, he'd find us some." Well, never let it be said that I don't crave approval, because here is some stuff from San Juan Capistrano, California that fits the bill.

Meet the Public Dims. Meet them? Hell, stream their entire EP, Vent Somewhere Else, and then download it for free. Public Dims are Shaan and Jesse, a guy who plays a guitar and a woman who plays drums. They recorded the album in March of this year, and released it in April. And because we pride ourselves in being among the most technical of the underground music blogs, we want you to know that Shaan and Jesse label their music "Gutbucket Hick Drone". For us, it is a bit of garage, a bit of rockabilly, a bit of drone and more than a little DIY feel. Oh, and I quite like it.

We also have the video for EP track "Lorimer".
