New Lo-Fi Psych Discovery: Gayze - Black Soul

And when I say lo-fi, I do mean LO... but great. Funny thing is, the cover art led me to expect a slick bit of shoegaze or dance-rock... and instead what spilled out of the speakers was a mid-60's Sunset Strip-inspired psychedelic freakout that reminds me fondly of that great Allah-Las record we featured in some of our "Best of 2012" lists. Plenty of reverb, and indecipherable lyrics - even better!

You can listen, and even download, the EP right here:

And you should... they've got three of the four P's nailed (psych, punk and pop abound). It's out now on Bleeding Gold Records.
