Two tracks today, both initially on Kanine Records (Chairlift, Grizzly Bear) in the US.
First up The Depreciation Guild, who are masters of dreamy fuzz-coated melodies in the same vein as Trailer Trash Tracys (who you can hear here and download a track from here) or even Teengirl Fantasy (download here).
They’re a Brooklyn three-piece and they play White Heat tonight with TTT, before heading out on tour in support of The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart.
Second, Princeton, whose ‘Calypso Gold’ is getting released on indie label Jodie And Victor here on 18th Jan.
This lot hail from Princeton Street in sunny Santa Monica, and have a vague tendency towards shoegaze too, but fit more in a quirk-pop furrow that’s had US blogs in a lather.
Let me know what you think of them both.
