Just heard about this single from Permanent records (in Chicago) who have been releasing a few things lately I've been meaning to check out...but then a 7" comes along and I had to see what this band was about.
It makes perfect sense that a store like this would get into the pressing game...if you have a store like this you are obsessed with music. Who couldn't see themselves, if given the chance, owning a store someplace like this just to supplement your record buying habit...you're obsessed anyway, why not try to make it a full time job? I have to say it's a little bit of a dream of mine too.
The only thing I could find out about Sneakers was the track 'Chick Freaked out' on Permanents myspace. It's female vocal heavy echo delay on top a really stuttered fuzzed out guitar over a some nice drum work. It's super speed bluesy in double time...the beat is really carrying this into more than your standard garage punky recording. The vocals are wailing, I like the washed out yelling vocals over this tight catchy rhythm section. I hope they keep up this energy on the other side.
I admit I checked it out when they said for fans of Wavves, but I don't really hear the connection. It's a pop Los Llamaradas...I didn't know about the other project, Cave either, but this drummer is great. The one track of Cave on the myspace is kind of Health sounding, but those guys are all over the place anyway. It's feedback distortion droney dark...with a pounding tribal percussion underneath.
You can get this right from the myspace page, they have a paypal button right below the release...
