Pageants are a three piece from long beach in California; they make stripped down, surfy jams. I'm a big fan of Rebecca Coleman's warbling vocals, which are thin but in a fragile, tender way rather than being reedy and uninspiring. With the standard slight echo/reverb applied, they're evocative on 'Edible Rust' and soaring on 'Cacti for Clothes' (which you can download from their bandcamp).
