[listen up] Stream a track from CreaturoS' first full-length, "Swampp Thingg" / Friday @ O'Brien's

The local psychedelia and garage rock enthusiasts at pRIMORDIAL sOUNDS have set October 30th as a release date for the debut full-length cassette by CREATUROS, Swampp Thingg. The first single and opening track "James Day's Milk Shake" spins two-and-a-half minutes of classic surf rock drums, tripped-out guitars and a rolling, echo-y hook, all wrapped up by the trustworthy sound of some scuzzy tape hiss. The songs were recorded in four different places over the past year and mixed at home by the band's frontman Spenser Gralla, formerly of DOOMSTAR! You can order the tape here.

Team pRIMORDIAL sOUNDS celebrates Swampp Thingg with a 10/29 release party at the most appropriate Monday-night spot, Zuzu's garage/psych weirdo weekly Night of the Living Deadhead. New Hampshire's The Migs will also play and folks of Freak Flag DJ.

Here's a glimpse of what that show might look, recorded at Video Underground in JP earlier this year:

CREATUROS also play O'Brien's in Allston this Friday with BENT SHAPES and COUSINS -- a Halifax garage pop group who have held a steady presence on my college radio playlists for the past 8 months or so. Info on
