Lo-fi duo Puppy Soul release debut EP, Release Party at Beatnik Bandito 11/16

Lo-fi duo Puppy Soul release debut EP, Release Party at Beatnik Bandito 11/16

In Orange County, Trevor Magaña's main squeeze has always been his mathrock affair Hollow Ran, but lately he's been branching out, exploring directions from sensibile bedroom pop to jazzy slowcore through guitar and voice. If the name Puppy Soul doesn't confer the spirit of Magaña's project, then you probably haven't browsed enough doge memes. With help from Jonathan Modell (The Human Machine, Panoramic, Tririla Recordings), Magaña was able to self-record the debut EP live with minimal overdubs (thank you smartphone Voice Memos) amidst a hazy ambiance of Maj9 chords and deliberately chilled rhythms.

Puppy Soul's debut EP releases through Pacific Nature Records on November 16th, 2016, with an extremely limited run of 25 red foil cassettes in lavender-scented cases. You probably missed their supporting set for Avi Buffalo tonight, so watch Trevor and Jonathan throw their EP release party tomorrow at Beatnik Bandito along with Slice, love birds, and the equally prolific Arden Klawitter.
