Wildhoney (slumberland recs) ϟ Calliope ϟ Haunter
Wildhoney formed in late 2011, and set out to write pop songs with the energy and malcontent of hardcore punk, but without its entrenched masculinity — drawing influences from ‘60s girl groups, ‘80s post-punk, indie pop and shoegaze. The five-piece has since become one of the loudest — and sweetest — bands in its hometown of Baltimore. Slumberland records/Deranged/Forward/Topshelf Records
Haunter is a band based in Milwaukee that started making music back in 2011. They explore all the sounds you heard coming out of your big brother/sister’s hi-fi back in the 90’s, from bands like Galaxie 500, Duster, Acetone, or Codeine, harnessing them in a very despondent way that lacks energy.
“Something like Yo La Tengo played at half-speed during the aftermath of a wildly important life moment.” – GoldFlakePaint
