NEW MUSIC: Purling Hiss – “Midnight Man”

Mexican Summer EP

For the past six months or so, I’ve been geeking out on this Philly psych-punk outfit called Purling Hiss. The group first came onto my radar via the now defunct, and greatly missed Arthur Mag, but since then it seems the cloud of chatter surrounding them has grown rather large (which for a home-fi psych rock band means a bunch of vinyl geeks and DIY music blogs have caught on). Led by Mike Polizze, who also plays in Birds of Maya, the group serves up swampy lo-fi recordings filled with tape-bent psych and flanged-out, muddy guitar solos. Over the course of the past year, Purling Hiss put an album on Woodsist, toured with Kurt Vile and has now released a new EP called Lounge Lizards on Mexican Summer. Below, hear the growling “Midnight Man,” and two previously released songs “Porch Dude/Slight Return” and “Run From the City” off the more song-oriented, Woodsist released Public Service Announcement.  You’re either going to love it or hate it…
