Six months after their solstice show Guitars released their ﬁrst EP, Faster, on Overlap.org. They’ve been promoting this release with unique hand stamped pogs that once caused a Canadian border guard to stop tearing their car apart and exclaim, “Oh my god! Are those pogs?”, during their ﬁrst west coast tour, which took place this fall. You can also count on psychedelic noise chants and bluesy country that’s provocative, sincere and catchy. Shanna Perez-Hill-McDowell and Kenric McDowell (formerly of Junior Varsity KM / Darla Records) skillfully manage a menagerie of instruments that includes electric and acoustic guitars, drums, tambourine, a two dollar one-stringed ukulele named Yuki and a rattle they “broke in” performing ceremonies in the Peruvian jungle. Fans of open-minded pop and mystical country will not be disappointed!
