Definitely RetardedThe Hiya Dunes
The Hiya Dunes // “Definitely Retarded”
It’s always fun when musicians that you really dig come together to create something new. We just got a tast of this earlier today on Portals today with the debut single from Gremlins. Now it’s happening again with the The Hiya Dunes. Consisting of Sean Posila (High Pop), Eddie Golden III (The Guru), Alex Goosman, and Jeff Hoyt, The Hiya Dunes play catchy lo-fi surf rock. According to Sean their debut track, “Definitely Retarded” is a “poppy girl anthem” and I can’t really argue. It’s definitely poppy, definitely about a girl, and it’s “Definitely Retarded.”
The track is being released as part of a compilation called Seagreen Records: Singles On Valentine’s Day. It’s a mixtape that has been put together to celebrate the advent of Seagreen Records. Featuring brand new tracks from bands like High Pop, The Guru, Major Bummer, Boy Crush, and others. It’s a gnarly compilation and it’s free starting today on the label’s bandcamp page. The label also has a Tumblr page, so make sure you follow along on there too, because I have a feeling that these guys are going to absolutely kill it in the future.
PREMIERE: BOY CRUSH - DREAMCATCHER
Boy Crush just hit us up with “Dreamcatcher”, a new cut he contributed to the Singles On Valentines Day compilation curated by Seagreen Records for Valentine’s Day today. Sean Posila (also of fuzzy garage-pop outfit High Pop) has the uncanniest knack for writing the catchiest guitar and vocal combos and this impressive new cut is hands down our favorite track off the compilation. Innocently playful guitar riffs and bass lines drenched in lo-fi fuzz is juxtaposed with semi-morbid lyricism—a comforting discomfort much like a head wound. Sounding like the usual Valentine’s Day? Maybe, maybe not, either way you can grab his new track via Bandcamp. Take it from Sean, be safe and try not to hit your head this Valentine’s Day.

Kid/Astro // Disaster Sounds
This is one to play loud and preferably with a melting popsicle in hand. If you guys dig High Pop (and come on, who doesn’t?) then you already have an in with this band. You see Jordan Caulfield, who is the half of High Pop with the beautiful locks, plays guitar and drums in Kid/Astro. He is joined by Thomas Reid, Dan Lewicki, and Ryan Jantz and together they form a delightful Boston quartet.
These guys make liking them an easy task. The music on their newest album Disaster Sounds is laid-back, guitar-driven fuzz pop that is perfect music to get sunburned to. I’m in the habit of making random summer mixtapes every year and leaving them dispersed around my house, family cars, and friends’ apartments; so I’m always on the lookout for music that I can throw on a CD-R and toss in the car. Kid/Astro perfectly fits this bill by crafting uncomplicated, instantly gratifying pop music that will no doubt be getting a lot of play from me in the coming weeks. It’s out now on Seagreen Records Bring on the heat!
Cherokee #1Kid Astro
The Boston-based “chiller-punk” sounds of Kid/Astro are electrifying. ”Cherokee #1,” the debut single from their upcoming album Disaster Sounds, ignites with a fiery romantic fervor. Fuzzed-out guitar melodies snake in and around a pummeling tornado of cymbals and snare, all while simple yet powerful shout-a-long sentiments pine for the girl downstairs.
here’s portals’ premiere of our new single.
‘disaster sounds’ drops june 12th on seagreen records.
we’re so psyched to finally get this out !!
