Gross Magic – ‘Yesterdays’

Reminiscent of early, scary Mercury Rev

Brighton boy Sam McGarrigle nails a perfect sweet spot between grungy grind and woozy, Ariel Pink-style psych-pop. This extract from a split seven-inch with Novella, The History Of Apple Pie and Echo Lake on Marshall Teller Records is his gnarliest work yet, reminiscent of early, scary Mercury Rev.
