New Orleans-based artist Peter Campanelli, aka Val Hollie, shreds with the kind of fuzziness that marks fellow psych rockers like Ty Segall and King Gizzard, but strips down the grime and reconstitutes his sound with keys and synths. Unlike much garage psych of recent years, Val Hollie’s self-titled EP glistens with clarity and a tranquil, night-time charm. Campanelli’s quavery guitar and vocal melodies bring to mind surfy ’60s pop, while starry-eyed synths punctuate his songs with softness. Listen below.

Val Hollie is out 11/13 on Hellhole Supermarket.
