Mad Mackerel Recommends... Stagnant Pools

Stagnant Pools’ sophomore album Geist was released this week on Polyvinyl Records.

The result is ten songs that refine and expand on a shoegaze-meets-noise pop sound that has previously drawn comparisons to Joy Divison, Sonic Youth, and The Jesus and Mary Chain.

Lead single Intentions continues in this tradition of pushing droning guitars barely over the edge into melody and amping up the fuzz and distortion without becoming submerged in it. Check it out below, together with equally good You Whir.
