There are basically two musical ways to my heart: danceable electro-pop and fuzzed-out guitar rock. Houston, TX four-piece Young Mammals takes the second route, and they’ve recently released a 7″ featuring two of their infectious tracks.
One of my biggest criticisms with the lo-fi sound is that it often serves as a way to cover up mediocre vocals. But with these recordings, the vocals are loud and clear, while still featuring some killer glimmering guitar riffs.
Take a listen to the A-side, “Landlady”:

Indie never tasted so good.
