RIYL: Dirty Beaches, La Luz, Shannon and The Clams
Sade Sanchez,Â Irita PaiÂ andÂ Ellie EnglishÂ make up the garage surf punk trio L.A. Witch, back with another 7″ packed to the brim with punk and roll surf sludge.Â 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. Â Think Kenneth Anger’s Scorpio Rising, the leather-clad Bettie PageÂ and theÂ bloody-knuckledÂ growl from the school of earlyÂ Link Wray. Â If L.A. Witch is surf rock, then they’reÂ the soundtrack right before a shark attack.
Greenway Records has a gorgeous splatter 7″ housed in a screenprinted sleeve for $12. Â If you’ve ever purchased one of Greenway’s deluxe singles, you know it’s worth every penny. Â Still, if your wallets are hurting, there’s another colorway on ‘desert sand’ brown for $8. Â You can even snag both of them in a package deal as well. Â BelowÂ are some live versions of the 7″ studio cuts to get a taste of the tracks. Â There is no digital release for this. Â Vinyl only!
