PPM [2012]

I had no idea what to expect from this one. Judging by the cover and the band name, I figured the group HAD to be indie and more than likely would be noisy, minimal, or both. I wasn't far off. Noctiluca by Los Angeles trio, Dunes fits somewhere between a Best Coast demo and an early 80's Siouxsie and the Banshees full length. The group is female fronted and packed with swirly, surfy guitars and ethereal and vividly visual lyrics. Despite the group's West Coast vibe, I could see myself listening to this record year round - come tropical weather or paralyzing snowfall.
