As much as I hate to give faceless social media corporations a shout out, got to thank Twitter for the good luck of running into Rival Tribes. The Ithaca-based band just sort of popped up in the feed, sparked my interest, and linked me all the way to their Bandcamp page. What I heard there, off their new self-titled EP, was an awesome mix of punky, wheezy, surfy, garage-y rock n roll instrumentals that fit like a glove into a mix I was making at the time, including the likes of Girlfriends, Thick Shakes, and Christians & Lions. So thank you Twitter! (oh, by the way, searched for the band on Myspace and found nada– so eff them!) Stream "Oceanside Villains" below, head to the Bandcamp to hear the whole album, and enjoy the completely random GIF I found below!
