Artist Of The Day: The Casket Girls

As I'm sure the majority of the people reading this post know, today is Record Store Day. For those who don't know what that is, it's the day where artists and labels from old to new send out limited exclusive releases to the brick and mortar independent record stores around the country. In the last few years, it's become quite an event, as hundreds and hundreds of releases are now limited to Record Store Day. On my list today of things to pick up was The Casket Girls' newest EP. While I was unfamiliar with the band, Graveface Records has slowly moved up to being one of my favorite labels, and from the color to the beautiful etching on the b-side of the record, the record was just so visually appealing. After a few spins earlier today, I knew I made a great decision. The Casket Girls play synth filled dream pop, while sisters Elsa and Phaedra Greene donate their sweet vocals to the mix. The girls harmonize beautifully together over the synths that vary from eerie to overwhelmingly powerful, a combination that sounds fantastic on wax. If you can find one of the remaining copies of the record remaining, you should absolutely buy it. If not, you can stream the release right here.
