Like how the lyrics and albums match up? Very clever. Nice song too – short and sweet. The band behind it are LA’s Mystery Claws, aka Julian Bembenek and Matt Kivel, who you may remember from Princeton (downlad the latter’s ‘Korean War Memorial’ here and ‘Moonbeams’ here).
‘Phoney Checks’ is released on 7″ through Jodie & Victor on August 16th, and this is the b-side.
Sharing acetate with Mystery Claws are the fuzzier Sleeping Bags, from down the 26-lane freeway in Long Beach. Their stock in trade is much more shoegaze but no less dreamy, and they’re offering up this track, ‘Canteloupe’.
Enjoy, and if you like what you hear buy the single
