Introducing: High Pop

Ready, set, bong! Get your fuzzed-out munchies on and prepare to receive the latest rips from Connecticut beach-punk outfit High Pop who just released their second full-length record “Hip Hip Hooray” on August 2nd. Endless foamy waves of guitar crash and swirl against the pulsating and overdriven bass, creating a broken sky of shimmering reverb clouds that hang lazily like stale smoke in the back of a speeding panel van. It’s the Dead Kennedys doing their best Beach Boys impression on April 20th. If you think you can jive with this turkey then head over to their Bandcamp and pay what you will – support underground artists and labels! You may have caught them last week on a very short and sweet tour with label mates The Guru and The Hiya Dunes, but if not then keep your ears aimed to the basements and you’ll hear it when High Pop cough their way back into town. – Dean Shakked
