FILTER Grade: 78%

Sacramento psych-pop unit Ganglians snarl back with Still Living. Producer Robby Moncrieff (Dirty Projectors’ Bitte Orca) helms the boards and cuts through some of the fogginess heard on the band’s 2009 one-two punch of Ganglians and its immediate follow-up, Monster Head Room. Primordial surf-rock numbers “Evil Weave” and “Jungle” possess a scruffy and eerily melodic allure. Too soon for July, the trio tends to fall back into the boredoms of late-summer garage jamming, though.
