These guys seem to have swam under my radar for a while now, but If self-recorded noise pop is your thing, you're in for a treat if you've never heard, like me, of Assassins 88. They released this four-track EP last month, which you can download free of charge over here. 'Beach People' consists of the jump about fury of the title track, the reminiscent tone of 'Raising Phoenix' and the lo-fi drugged up 'Summer Vacation'. The final track however, 'Wildwood Girl', which you can stream above, caught my ear. Muffled vocals bounce around on a base of 60's guitar before the noise erupts in a stream of passion and feeling. This is the reason I listen to noise pop, right here. Download 'Beach People' now!
