As noted when covering Ariel Pink live @ Irving Plaza this past summer, Californians Piper and Skylar Kaplan, aka Pearl Harbor, changed their name to Puro Instinct. Under the new moniker, the sisters are joined by aforementioned tourmate Ariel Pink on “Stilyagi,” the A-Side of a 7″ out next month. After that, look for their debut full-length Headbangers In Ecstasy, a title that continues Mexican Summer’s gentle flirtation with heavy stuff, or at least Hessian culture. Here’s “Stilyagi.”
“Stilyagi” b/w “Put Medved To Bedved” is out early January. You can pre-order it now. Headbangers In Ecstasy is out 2/22, also via Mexican Summer. The sisters are joined by four new bandmates on it: Cody Porter, Jessie Clavin, Mike Baum, and one Crazy Murray.
