Stagnant Pools

Bloomington, IN duo Stagnant Pools (aka brothers Bryan and Doug Enas) are set to release Temporary Room, their first album for Polyvinyl on August 7. Here’s what I wrote about the album on bvChicago:

[It’s] super muddy and soaked in reverb and distortion, but somewhere in this band’s late ’80s/early ’90s record collection of noisy post-punk and shoegaze, must lie a scratched up, overplayed copy of Is This It that can’t help but leave its mark on these songs.

You can stream the entire album below and also grab MP3s of two of its tracks above.

The band have a run of dates coming up this month and next including two in NYC. They’ll open for Exitmusic at Mercury Lounge on June 28 and for Akron/Family at Brooklyn Bowl on June 29. Tickets for the Mercury Lounge show are still available and the Brooklyn Bowl show is free with RSVP.
