Is/Is – “Is/Is” – [Manimal]
This all-female Portland trio (Sarah Rose: guitar/vocals, Sarah Nienaber: bass/vocals, Ronnie Lee: drums) categorizes themselves as ghost rock/goblin pop. Solid guitar, bass, drums, and vocals come through a constant hum of reverb and static, as though you’re listening to instrumental psych and the band is practicing down the hall. No need to play two tracks at once with this one. The vinyl is a little warped on the edges but who can tell? No FCCs detected.
