Cool Ghouls
San Francisco, California - Melodic Records / Empty Cellar Records
This quartet mix the raw, primitive sound of acts like The Troggs and The Monks with the harmonies and sophistication of the Millennium. Boasting three strong vocalists and uptempo garage-inspired songs. the group's 2014 sophomore LP, ‘A Swirling Fire Burning Through the Rye’, was a catchy, compelling, and highly pleasurable set. With its live, spontaneous vibe, jangling 12-string guitars, and psych leanings, the album is peppered with memorable, well-crafted gems. It’s follow-up ‘Animal Races’ - out now on Melodic Records, is “eleven tracks of shaggy rhythms and guitar flirtations played with loose conviction and happy sincerity”, says Flood Magazine. “The swagger that comes through these eleven tracks gives them a kind of life beyond their forms, making them sound fresh and vital”.

"Their melodies are simple and near-perfect" - Vice

“Possessing the same infectious joie de vivre as fellow Californians Allah Las, and a vocal team that aren’t afraid to show they can a hold a tune. It’s like sunlight hitting your face through a stained glass window” - Shindig!

"they have as much in common with alt country acts like My Morning Jacket and Band Of Horses as any predetermined notion of what psychedelia is" - Drowned In Sound
