Ganglians sign to Lefse, release 'Jungle'
The excellent Lefse Records have released music by artists such as How To Dress Well, Neon Indian and Ireland-based Low Sea in recent times. Add Sacramento three-piece Ganglians to that list: in August they'll be coming back with a double-album, the follow-up to the two seriously impressive records they released in 2009 (Ganglians and Monster Head Room).
The first taster from it, 'Jungle', is in a similar vein to previous off-kilter psych/folk/garage excursions like 'My House' and 'Hair'. The forthcoming album, Still Living, will be keenly anticipated by anyone who digs their thrilling sound, which can veer from unhinged-though-tuneful garage thrash to sun-kissed alt-folk strum-a-longs to gorgeous pastoral vibes ('To June' being a particular highlight).
