Leeds quintet Eagulls make a shambling racket akin to No Age doubling up with a studlier Cloud Nothings — or something older and scuzzy from the ’90s Pacific Northwest.

It’s called “Acrostical.” John Cage approves, etc.
“Council Flat Blues” b/w “Acrostical” is out 2/14 via Not Even. As far as additional aesthetic frames, here’s a cover they did of the Wipers’ “Mystery.”
