this is a great lo-fi track i found recently called Euphoria from Philly indie garage-pop duo Reading Rainbow {Sarah Everton vocals/drums et Robbie Garcia vocals/guitar} off the recently released "Reading Rainbow/Coasting" split EP (2010).

Euphoria appropriately starts with a kick-ass ecstatic surging guitar wailing away, then big fat stomping, spacious garage drums kick in, followed by hazy droning female/male unison vocals that fight to break through the leaden wall of noise. this is a thundering, scrappy lo-fi garage pop track with canyons of reverb et warm harmonies. the song ends with the declaration: "Euphoria / is over", which they chant repeatedly, like a dystopian mantra. euphoria is overrated anyways!

MP3: Euphoria

check out the awesome lo-fi hi-8 music video for Euphoria, directed by Aaron DeBruin, it's sooo great! totally reminds me of 80s Flying Nun videos.

you can buy the "Reading Rainbow/Coasting" split EP 7"from the French label Atelier Ciseaux.

if you like what you hear then i recommend you definitely get your mitts on Reading Rainbow's "Prism Eyes" (2010) album which is available online at itunes.
