I try not to write about any one local club in particular here. I really do. Not prudent to show favoritism. But in the case of BSP Lounge, which has been consistently bringing in cool, edgy, intelligent stuff, well, what are you gonna do? Case in point: Midwestern shoegazers Stagnant Pools, who open for Clap Your Hands Say Yeah this Thursday.

A duo formed in 2010 by Bloomington, Indiana-bred brothers Bryan (guitar/vocals) and Douglass Enas (drums), Stagnant Pools struck critical gold two years later with their lo-fi masterpiece debut, Temporary Room (Polyvinyl Records). After high-profile tours opening for David Bazan, Maximo Park, Cymbals Eat Guitars, and others, the pair recorded their newly released sophomore set, Geist (Polyvinyl), which drinks deep from post punk and noise pop acts like Joy Division, Ride, and Lush.

Dig Stagnant Pools playing “Illusions” live on Seattle radio station KEXP in 2012:

Stagnant Pools performs with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah at BSP Lounge on June 26 at 8pm. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 day of show. For more information, call (845) 481-5158 or visit http://bspkingston.com/.
