Reseña de álbum

The hype surrounding Cleburne, Texas trio Fungi Girls early on in their career often drew attention to how shockingly young all the bandmembers were. For a band inspired by the often haggard sounds of Times New Viking and other pioneers of the world-weary "shitgaze" aesthetic, Fungi Girls' median age of 15 seemed way too fresh-faced for the unholy noise coming out of their early recordings. With second full-length Some Easy Magic, the youngsters further this phenomena of age displacement by toning things down from the feedback-addled energy of their last collection, Seafaring Pyramids. Leaning toward a cool, almost detached delivery, the kids create something well beyond their years on Some Easy Magic. In interviews surrounding the album, the band often cited Henry's Dress as a primary influence. That influence is clear in the grainy melodicism of the more-twee-than-garage "Marv Alien" and echos of other Slumberland Records artists like Black Tambourine and Rocketship. There's a surfy tone to a lot of the playing here, and the inclusion of straight-up surf instrumentals like leadoff track "Sabana Breeze" and "Breeze II" underscores the beach-blanket vibes that color Some Easy Magic.

While there's a lot to be said for how much less intentionally blurry the band has become, many of the tracks could benefit from a dose of palpable excitement. Singer Jacob Bruce has melodies to spare, but his deadpan delivery sounds bored to death. The majority of the songs touch on topics of boredom, restlessness, and just how little is going on in town at any given moment. Enough nonplussed songs about actual teenage wasteland feelings eventually drag down how the playing comes through as well. The band sleepwalks through the fast but lifeless "Velvet Days" and limps through "All Night Blues," giving off the impression that a lo-fi treatment similar to older work might be just what these dull tracks need. Fungi Girls hit their stride when the band sounds most engaged, as on the standout title track. While their excitement doesn't always come through on the recordings, their hunger to constantly develop and revise their sound is clear. They may have some years to go before they deliver a fully realized version of their sound, but while a sometimes tedious affair, this set of songs shows promise. When they're old enough to vote, smoke, or legally drink in the dive bars they're playing, it could be anybody's guess what they'll be doing, but as of Some Easy Magic, the kids are alright.


Se formó en: agosto de 2008 en Texas

Género: Rock

Años de actividad: '00s, '10s

Three teenagers from a small suburban town outside of Dallas, Texas, Fungi Girls started earning national attention for their surf-fused breed of detached garage punk long before any of them were old enough to drive themselves to their own shows. Made up of bassist Deryck Barrera, guitarist/lead vocalist Jacob Bruce, and drummer/sometimes singer Skylar Salinas, the trio formed in the summer of 2008, inspired by the lo-fi scuzz-pop of Times New Viking and Psychedelic Horseshit. True to the blown-out...
