Stone Darling: All I Wanna Do/Can You Get To That

"all i wanna do" Cover Art

There have been a plethora of great female bands coming out of southern California. The most dominant of these are Vivian Girls, Warpaint, Dum Dum Girls and Best Coast (ok so there's a guy in this band, but the focus is Bethany Cosentino). This then begs the question, do we need another shoegazy, post-punk, SoCal female band? Oh yes, absolutely...Stone Darling. All we have from Stone Darling so far are two tracks, the original All I Wanna Do and a cover of the Funkadelics Can You Get To That. Beautiful harmonies, jangly guitars and pure garage band bliss abound in these tracks. The hook heavy All I Wanna Do is a pefect single. Light, airy and just good to listen to. One of those tunes you can just listen to over and over. Can You Get To That is powerful and laid back simultaneously and gives even more of the beautiful harmonies. The band recently got a full EP release funded on Kickstarter, so look forward to hearing much more from this band. Stream and download Stone Darling at the link below.
