Stagnant Pools - Real Lies (2010) & Live @ Russian Recording (2010)

Stagnant Pools is a band consisting of a pair of brothers from Indiana. Together they make some noisy, lo-fi shoegaze. In 2010 they released an album entitled Real Lies as well as a live recording called Live @ Russian Recording via bandcamp. Additionally, tracks and information sometimes appear on their tumblr page. Musically, they make some great use of the wall of sound technique that is so fundamental to the shoegaze sound. Also, if you're like me and understanding the words sung isn't as important as hearing anything audible than these guys could be your jam. They're quick, constant and nearly droning without washing out all signs of rhythm and beat. Basically, they'll consume your brainwaves as you listen to them should you be inclined to grant them that leeway.
