RIYL: Dirty Beaches, La Luz, Shannon and The Clams
Sade Sanchez,¬†Irita Pai¬†and¬†Ellie English¬†make up the garage surf punk trio L.A. Witch, back with another 7″ packed to the brim with punk and roll surf sludge.¬†L.A. Witch have that ‘driving down a lone dirt road at 2 AM’ vibe, embracing the often overlooked dark side of the 50s and early 60s. ¬†Think Kenneth Anger’s Scorpio Rising, the leather-clad Bettie Page¬†and the¬†bloody-knuckled¬†growl from the school of early¬†Link Wray. ¬†If L.A. Witch is surf rock, then they’re¬†the soundtrack right before a shark attack.
Greenway Records has a gorgeous splatter 7″ housed in a screenprinted sleeve for $12. ¬†If you’ve ever purchased one of Greenway’s deluxe singles, you know it’s worth every penny. ¬†Still, if your wallets are hurting, there’s another colorway on ‘desert sand’ brown for $8. ¬†You can even snag both of them in a package deal as well. ¬†Below¬†are some live versions of the 7″ studio cuts to get a taste of the tracks. ¬†There is no digital release for this. ¬†Vinyl only!
