We can see the undead jivin' to this one. Couple some vaguely hip-shaking sample -- it sounds like a tape of a tape of a tape of some '80s radio staple, we're not sure which -- with a dry, blood-thirsty vocal, and a melty guitar line, and you get "Zombies," this new track from S.F.'s Rangers (Joe Knight), due on a forthcoming EP. Hear it after the jump.

So much noise, crackle, burble, and slap on this one. It's a slab of spacey noise-pop that sounds like -- well, it sounds like it belongs on Gorilla Vs. Bear, which is one of the places we found it (along with our very own local MP3 blog, See The Leaves). And well, it kinda grew on us. Check out the latest from Rangers:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
