The Oilies is sometimes a band and sometimes just Carly Putnam’s home fried pop music. Carly has done time in the Art Museums, The Mantles, Horrid Red and The Reds, Pinks & Purples but really shines when she pulls out her own poetic pop gems. Combine the subtle creepiness of Rose McDowall with the wistfulness of the Marine Girls and you have a record tailor made for the Fruits & Flowers universe of unpopular pop. Her debut EP was recorded mostly by Carly in her RV parked somewhere in the existential desert and then filtered through Edmund Xavier’s SF lab.
