♫♪  Pagiins - ‘“Doo Doo”

Arkansas’ Pagiins are tracking dirt into your house and calling you on your shit, again, with “Doo Doo” from their forthcoming LP Opium Den Pool Party. Hell, why not, Arkansas is American rock and roll incarnate and we were tired of hearing about your black bargain bin boots, Eric.

The five-piece dropped two EPs since forming in 2012 – Good Things Take Time and Bad Things Don’t – and stuck them together on a totally still available 12”. The two EPs drive as hard as any west coast noise rock outfit, keep that Black Lips/Fat Possum-era Bass Drum of Death southern jangle, and can be downloaded free of charge on Bandcamp.

Their upcoming, not two EPs in one LP debut, Opium Den Pool Party, aside from being a generally good idea, looks like a defunct Fort Smith, Arkansas garage-rock super group that Damon Tillonson, one of Pagiins’ two drummers, took part in. None of their sounds found their way onto the web unfortunately, but the name stands strong and I think we’re all better because of it.

Mix botany and aquatics below and party with the boys and The Coathangers in the low midwest this week.
