BIOGRAFIA


Sacramento's Ganglians want an island somewhere where they can soak in the sun and prowl the canopy by night. It's not often that they do get out, but they can get down for that. Recording sometimes as one, sometimes as four it's a real game to figure out where the entity comes from and where it's going. First and foremost it's about uncertain pleasures. It's a bit like choose your own adventure. There's “codeine balladry”; a slightly upsetting tempo that is quickly flushed into an aural high, the next moment you're in the toy strewn abyss of the bedroom and then out to the tribal caves of the natives. The planets align and the sun beats down, palms tingling, and you are on the island they've built, the scenery constantly shifting for a better view, of you. “It's a bike-ride of a song that puts its own spin the Beach Boys or the psych-folk-pop-argh of Grizzly Bear. But while Grizzly Bear manicure and cloister their psych folk in the parlor, Ganglians slather and cake them in mud. Then they set them free.” – Pitchfork “Monster Head Room is looking like a contender for my LP of the year.” – Vice Magazine “The atmospheric intro of “Valiant Brave”, from Ganglians’ Monster Head Room,builds into a rousing ballad of jangling guitars and layered, wailing vocals that sound like an army of pixies shouting at a cactus after taking too much peyote. – Dazed & Confused
