Pagiins: Pure Psychedelic Punk Explosion From Before and Beyond

Pagiins, out of Fayetteville, Arkansas, churn out some kick ass expansive indie rock. It is a heady blend of post punk rock drenched with late 60's / 70's psychedelia. When you listen to songs like Good Things Take Time / Bad Things Don't or Open Up Your Mind or Maria it feels like a pure psychedelic punk explosion extracting the attitude from days gone by and days to come. The blendo post punk has such a sweeping mix of generational sounds that the result feels as nostalgic as it does immediate. The churning punk / garage rock conjures up sonic images of Iggy Pop, MC5, Japandroids coupled with a slightly more garden rock melodic feel / leaning of bands like the Yardbirds and the Walkmen. All these disparate musical sounds ultimately work all together. Dance, mosh or head bang away to Pagiins.
