I recently downloaded an 11-song tour-only lp from these guys, and it is really good. Like best thing i've heard all year good. I won't bother going into the background of the band (i dont know all that much), but they do have a bunch of demos, an ep and a forthcoming album in June. The music itself sounds like a distillation (or copping) of every movement that rock has seen in the last 50 yrs. Seriously: this thing will get comparisons to Pavement, and then various classic rockers, in the same sentence as Dirty Projectors. The influence is varied for sure, but it all works for them--this is fun, summery rock n roll.
I especially think this will appeal to the King Khan crowd. It's got a similar low-fi quality (hopefully this carries over to the full-length).
Now that i've butchered a description and have turned 90% of you off of this already (i hate this part of recommending stuff), i'll redeem myself by posting some samples.
