M31 – Infected Dreams EP (Rack & Ruin)
M31 are a trio based in Santa Ana, California who describe themselves as “the noise created from garage rock, punk, blues, and psychedelia crashing together. Scraping together melodies, sounds, songs, and equipment we make music cocktails for altered days.” Their list of influence include Suicide, Rudimentari Peni, Nirvana, Sonic Youth as well as non-musical influences like crack cocaine and acid.
