Published Feb 03, 2014Montreal's psychedelic garage rock scene has been going strong for a few years now thanks to groups like Red Mass, Duchess Says and CPC Gangbangs. Now members from each of those bands have joined forces as PyPy and are ready to issue their first-ever LP. Their seven-track debut, Pagan Day, won't be out until February 11. Until then, you can listen to the Black Gladiator/Slovenly Recordings release in its entirety by streaming the album at the bottom of the page.
Praying at the altar of legendary dance punk labels like 99 Records and the heroes of garage rock's current cultural renaissance, Pagan Day finds the Montreal psych outfit delivering a blistering set of '80s-era proto-punk ("New York") and druggy FM radio jams ("Molly"), which is all the more anchored by co-vocalist Annie-Claude Deschênes' riot grrrl-meets-bratty teenager screams.
