So on one of our regular searches around the world wide interweb looking for new music, we have a few regulars we like to scout from. Problem is, then you feel guilty taking the credit for it. Such is the case with the next teen sensation, Fungi Girls.
In case you missed the hint, we found these guys via Impose -- who ironically is responsible for Brooklyn teen noisemakers Fiasco's most recent record -- because they are currently hosting a link to download Fungi Girls' Psilo demo.
Maybe the fact that they are only 14 and 15 years old will help you want to dig out from under their lo-fi murky garage rock and the obvious Vivian Girls and Wavves comparisons. Or maybe it will make you realize how novice bands like those are at such "advanced" ages. Or because that at such a young age, Fungi Girls' list of references ranging from Suicide and Pavement seem that much more impressive. Whatever the case, the beyond-their-years song writing of Fungi Girls has paid off in the way of two soon to be released split tapes. One with Natural Numbers on North Carolina's Neon Aztec Records and one with Philadelphia's Reading Rainbow on California's Not Not Fun. Not bad for "three Texas teenagers who make noise pop." The track below, "Crystal Roads", is on their Psilo demo.
