Sacramento, California’s Ganglians fused gangs with aliens to forge their moniker much in the same way that they braid psychedelic surf music with lo-fi indie rock to conceive something that sounds born in the wake of John Dwyer’s utopia (the San Francisco Mission District art-rock scene). The quartet’s eponymous 2009 EP opens with “Hair,” a soaring and melodic college-radio mini-opus fueled by driving rhythms, heavily reverberated wave-riding guitar leads, and contagiously catchy singing.
