Ganglians - Monster Head Room


Channeling Brian Wilson at his most experimental and psychotic, Ganglians have produced an incredibly fun and melodic psychedelic pop record that fits in well with their fellow Woodsist label mates. The songs are relatively standard for the genre, but the vocals really put this record over the top. Imagine if those guys in Fleet Foxes stopped focusing on growing huge beards and used all of their free time to consume as many hard drugs as possible. Standout tracks like "Voodoo" and "Lost Words" will grab you immediately, while the second half of the record will likely take some time to grow on you. Well worth the investment I'd say. They're on tour right now with Wavves, so check them out and buy some shit when they come through your town. Also make sure you ask the guy from Wavves as many pressing questions about Barcelona as you can. I hear he really loves it when people do that.

This record is awesome, very dirty hippie on a tropical beach type vibe. The second half didn't have to take time to grow on me. Maybe my ear perception is screwed.
