The arrival of Is/Is!

Choir Croak Out Them Goodies favorite Is/Is has released a new 7-inch for "Hunter" in preparation for a new EP and summer west coast tour. "Hunter" is somewhat of a departure from their last LP, III, which was '90s-inspired, lo-fi grunge, and instead touches on the psychedelic dreampop movement that ran through the Echo Park/Los Angeles scene over the last six or seven years. But they've got so much more backbone and polish than the majority of what's been released in L.A. the last few years, and they appear savvy enough to evolve without abandoning their fanbase.
