Pang — Attention Deficit
Oakland’s all-girl all-fierce quartet Pang debuted yesterday with a seven-inch on Play Pinball! Records. Its garage punk sound on the A-side, “Attention Deficit,” incorporates a kind of synth-drone that finds a middle ground between Stereolab’s hypnotic keyboards and The Okmoniks’ frantic organ. The song shows symptoms of its namesake disorder, meaning lots of short bursts of simple, effective melodies that make your head spin. Pay attention or … wait, what?
