PETS: Get Turned On: LP

Fuzzy, feel-good psych pop. Like a lighter, fluffier Jesus And Mary Chain. Lots of mid-tempo hip shakers, it’s almost ambient but with a solid beat. Allison and Derek take turns at the mic. Both have easy steadfast vocals that melt into with their buzzed-out sound like powdered sugar into cake batter. Pets has been around since 2003 and has recently been making the rounds with Dog Party and Kepi Ghoulie. Keep an eye out! –Camylle Reynolds (SAC, sacramaniacs.com)
