RIYL: Pure X, Dirty Beaches, Gap Dream

Label: Fire Talk

Chicago sludge psych duo Earring have been churning out their own brand of post-punk for almost 4 years now, and they’re continuing down that heavy trip with a brand new full-length this year with Fire Talk Records.

Similar to the aesthetic of Pure X’s lofi psych LP Pleasure and Dirty Beaches’ Badlands, Earring’s vocals are bathed in reverb and swallowed up by the sludgy guitar layers like a sheet of acid on your tongue.  It’s an immense sound in the headphones, but Tunn Star‘s melodies aren’t sacrificed in the process.  Their harmonies shimmer through the sludge and keep your ears interested the entire journey.  I hear little hints of Gap Dream without the electronics and even Gauntlet Hair without the chillwave influence.

Fire Talk Records only have 100 copies of this blissful haze on clear vinyl.  Check out the available tracks below and float through that ‘buy’ button.
