Burger signee The Garden
is putting its scowling garage murk in the hands of Sky Ferreira
producer Justin Raisen
and slumpy psychedelic angel Ariel Pink
for a series of tracks. Pink and Raisen are working under the moniker Raw Deal. The Garden (twin bros Wyatt and Fletcher Shears) usually puts out drum-heavy, red-faced, guitar smearage, and these two new demos fit neatly with their schtick. Crystal Clear
features aggressively monotone lyrics like some strange amalgamation of David Byrne and Anthony Keidis. Slice Em
is slightly more sleepy, like Jonathan Richman on an angry day. Listen to both demos below.
