Ganglians - Monster Head Room LP + 7"

The "Monster Head Room" LP by Sacramento's Ganglians caught my attention because of the sublime artwork pictured above. And upon checking out their myspace, I quickly turned into a believer. Apparently Ganglians managed to release their first 2 LP's almost simultaneously on Weird Forest / Woodsist Records, home to other breakthrough artists such as Vivian Girls, Crystal Stilts, Woods and Wavves to name just a few.

What to expect of Ganglians? Well, most comparisons talk about Brian Wilson on acid, but since I always have the math equation Brian + Wilson = drugs, I'll say yes, there's definitely the Beach Boys vibe in it, but that can also be said of Fleet Foxes. So, for the sake of using modern references, I'd put them somewhere in between early Animal Collective and a dirtier more lo-fi sounding Fleet Foxes, with the psychedelic vibe that Grizzly Bear brings.

Do yourself a favour and pick up both the "Monster Head Room" LP +7" and the "s/t"LP from Boomkat
