puro instinct - Headbangers In Ecstasy
*Glitter-embossed jacket* Emerging from a haze of hype circulated by Altered Zones and Ariel Pink, among many others, the Kaplan sisters deliver one of this year's finest dream-pop delicacies. Since debuting in 2009, Piper and Skylar have changed name from Pearl Harbor to Puro Instinct and added a few new bandmates, but still retained that tender blend of misty-eyed Ruski pop and West Coast cool which gathered them such momentum in the first place. Like a much more smudged version of label mates Ford & Lopatin, 'Headbangers In Ecstasy' transports us to a parallel late '80s simulacra, only in their's the cold war has already ended and LA has become infatuated with the mystery of a post soviet-spirit pop romance, at once melancholy but future positive. Essentially it sounds something like Lush meets Fleetwood Mac in an extended early MTV montage shot in St Petersburg in the summer, or somewhere close.
