Alyeska – “Stones”

“Stones,” the new single from LA indie-rock up-and-comers Alyeska, reminds me of Sonic Youth circa Rather Ripped, which should be more than enough reason for you to click. But in case you’re in need of further convincing, we’ve been vibing with Alyeska for about a year and a half now; check out previous singles “EverGlow,” “Tilt-A-Whirl,” and “Sister Buckskin” for a primer. On this latest track, an outtake from the band’s recent Crush EP, Alaska Reid breathily intones lines such as, “They like you when you’re dumb,” over top of an impressive cascade of alternately noisy and pretty guitars. Listen below.
