Here’s another highlight from Puro Instinct‘s Headbangers in Ecstasy, still our favorite full-length of 2011 so far: “Silky Eyes” displays the group’s knack for crafting songs with deceptively complex structures, in which ethereal, in-the-clouds dream-pop seamlessly morphs into shimmering, soft focus disco-lite and jangly post-punk in just over 3 minutes. Or as their label puts it, “think Fleetwood Mac, Bobb Trimble, and Lush in a champagne filled jacuzzi — but with a bit more sparkle and smog.” Look for a video for this one in the near future:

Puro Instinct :: Silky Eyes

Headbangers in Ecstasy is out next week on Mexican Summer. To celebrate, the label has hooked us up with one limited edition Puro “super bundle” that includes the following: a Headbangers limited edition LP (ed. of 200, hand numbered, screen printed jacket), HiE on cd, a Stilyagi 7 “, Puro t-shirt, zine, poster, and since this is V-Day, a box of chocolates. To enter, just leave your favorite love jam in the comments, and we’ll pick a winner on February 22, the record’s release date. Catch the band at their Flaunt-presented L.A. record release party on February 28.

UPDATE: contest closed on February 22, congrats to winner Pia Haukali.
