Pleistocene – ‘Secular’

Pleistocene produce instantly loveable garage rockers with guy/girl vocals and plenty of fuzz! Their latest nine track release ‘Ontario Girls‘ is worth a listen. Pleistocene should sit well with fans of Joanna Gruesome, No Joy or Veronica Falls. In fact, the New York five piece would sound right at home on the Slumberland label. But it’s all indie for now, with a cassette tape release coming on July 26, digital available here.

Noise pop fans will want to wrap their ears around Kindling‘s forthcoming 7 inch ‘Spike And Wave’ featuring the raw rockers ‘Sunspots’ and ‘Given‘! It’s out July 17 via Moon Sounds Records (Ceremony, Dead Leaf Echo, The Vandelles). The Easthampton, Massachusetts duo have just expanded their line up to five, with a view to recording their debut LP in the near future.
