Anyway, this just sounds like nondescript, blandly stylish hipster throwback fare, what about it makes you like them?

there's a Rundgren thing going on all over the album (which is on Spotify), it's quite nice. I Wanna Prove To You is probably the standout so far. also an MGMT thing going on i guess.

these guys are from my hometown. my high school orchestra teacher is a mutual friend of mine and the older brother's.

They're awesome - McDonald brothers of Redd Kross / Donnie & Joe / Rundgren / Jellyfish vibe

one month passes...

they were on french tv for a live performance yesterday.
I had never heard of them.
it was retro, clumsy, affected and very teenage poseurs but it had an unexpected charm and energy.
the singer/guitarist has a pete townshend shtick that could be either annoying or funny...
I'm not sure they're not just a joke though.

pretty interesting stuff to my ear, whoever's making the decisions about how the vocal layering works has some really good ideas. ditto that bass tone in the verses during the song whose video starts this thread. the whole LOOK, GOOFBALLS thing is a huge turnoff to me but whatcha gonna do, crowded market right

I took my short legged woman
To the dance last night
We watched the highway patrol
Take selfies with Nardwuar

i think they are from my neck of the woods. syosset, long island? a town away from where i grew up. i think they're from the d'addario family that makes the guitar strings.

a few songs on this evoke early-to-mid-period Bee Gees for me, which is an itch I seldom get scratched
