Death Valley Girls EP
Death Valley Girls. Their new EP, Electric High, comes out August 19. The cover art screams all 1979-Raw Records-cum-1990s-Rip Off Records punk. Their sound skews a little more riff-rock snarl. The femme singer, Bonnie Bloomgarden, formerly of 2000s NYC greasers, the Witnesses, is almost comically snotty, almost. They had a cassette on Burger (sold out), and apparently they’re based in L.A., but their dive-ready crunch implies cold city grit. Laura Kelsey formerly of the Flytraps is in it. And that’s about all you need to know for now, pal. They’ve got a tour coming up this fall, so you can go to the shows and ask them yourselves, because they’re not telling.
