Ruby Haunt, Witches Exist

Though slow-churning signature track “Answering Machine” offers a swirling, meditative instrumental, Los Angeles duo Ruby Haunt usually deal in slightly more energetic, though still introspective, dream-pop. Twinkling keys and groggy vocals populate Wyatt Ininns and Victor Pakpour’s latest full-length, 2023’s Between Heavens, while new EP Heaven Sent provides four additional B-sides. On December LP Crashing, local openers Witches Exist jump between quiet melancholia (“Leaf”), screaming rock freakouts (“Homeostasis,” “Sims 4”) and glitchy bass jams (“Tower”), but still offer a cohesive alt-rock soundscape. – Carys Anderson
