Laugh now, cry later: here is the debut 7″ EP from San Francisco’s own SMILES. This record continues the Melters cult of GERARD LOVE worship, but you can listen closely and catch some nods to PRIMAL SCREAM, the Paisley Underground or even ELLIOTT SMITH’s later electric work.
Casper Skulls emerged from the Toronto exurbs in 2015, bursting onto the local scene with a studied sound and supercharged live performances. Following an early 7” on the band’s own label, Hip Priest, the quartet released the Lips & Skull EP on Buzz Records in late 2016. Described by MTV as a collection of “confrontational art rock that bleeds with sincerity,” and drawing comparisons to luminaries like Television, The Fall (The Toronto Star), Pavement, and Sonic Youth (Noisey).
Formerly Teenage Chain.
