A EP You Must Download: Guards EP

By Will Oliver, July 22nd 2010 — with 5 comments Free Download MP3

So a lot of my favorite music blogs have been buzzing about the Guards EP. I have had it downloaded and ready to go, but I put it aside so I could try and ignore all the hype and give it a fair listen. I finally played it, and wow, this is quite a debut EP.

Guards first hit the spotlight after Cults posted a tweet on their twitter saying that they contributed a song for the guards ep. It linked to a bandcamp page, which is the only place you can find Guards related stuff. On their is the 7 song self titled debut EP, up for free download.

The EP is solid from top to bottom. It opens with the memorable “resolution of one”, then sees Charlift’s very own Caroline Polachek contributing on “trophy queen”. Cults contributed on a song called “sail it slow”, and it’s as great as you’d expect.

Guards came out of no where but surely impressed everyone that downloaded this EP. All of the songs are memorable slices of sunny retro pop. The songs may be called lo-fi, but these guys have the mindset of songs that would fair very well with good production.

One thing’s for sure: The person/s behind Guards are no amateurs. These guys know damn well how to play.

Do yourself a favor and download the entire EP over at their bandcamp right now. If you want a quick taste before you are sold, posted below are my favorite cuts:

[mp3]: guards – resolution of one
[mp3]: guards – sail it slow (feat. CULTS)
