BURNT ONES / MALLARD, THE: Split: 7”EP

The Mallard are no longer, but they offered up this last split before their, well, split. Their side of the single, “Shreds,” has an enthralling psych garage sound. Greer McGettrick’s vocals reverberate with a haunting echo, almost like they bounce back and forth off the strums and melody of the guitar. It’s damn good. Flip to the other side, Burnt Ones is really an apt name for their super fuzzed-out, thick-as-smoke tune “Glass Dream R.I.P.s.”—dreamy garage, heavy guitar, and sly vocals with plenty of reverb. Another solid single off of Mt. St. Mtn.
