Gashcat, Ghost Foot - Trunk Space - May 15

Shreveport's Gashcat plays something they call "fuzz folk." More specifically, they sound like Neutral Milk Hotel filtered through idiosyncrasies a little less particular than Jeff Mangum's -- loud, shouty, melodic, playing acoustic guitars that buzz in the mix like they really wanted to be Rivers Cuomo's Les Paul when they grew up.

They're joined by Louisiana compatriots Ghost Foot, whose debut bad blood sounds like garage-rock-revival-revival. The timing's right for one, as weird as it seems--the Strokes are going on 13 years old.
