You guys? I’m excited about this one.
While Dan of Throwback Thursday fame is hanging out in Houston catching Jeff Mangum’s set, my plan was to hang out, paint my nails, and watch some weird movies. Did an ombre teal thing on the nails and watched “Butter,” a comedy about butter sculpting with Jennifer Garner, Kristen Schaal, and Ty Burrell among many others. All in all, a banner night.
This band is so up my alley that I don’t know how I haven’t come across them before. Think 60s girl-group vocals laid atop fuzzy 90s shoegaze guitar. In a word? Beautiful.
God, that sprinkles-covered album art just makes me love them more. If you’re like me, you already checked out their tour dates to see if they’re were coming to your town. Unless you live in the UK, that’s a no go. No SXSW showcase either. (TRAVESTY).
But I do have a piece of good news: you can stream the whole album over at CLASH. You can also grab the mp3 of album track “Glitch” below:
I can’t be the only ones digging these guys, because literally everything on their merch site, from 7″s to t-shirts is sold out. Even those XXL t-shirts that nobody ever sells.
If you need some audio with your visual, watch the band rocking out to “Mallory”:
Okay, now that you’re thoroughly infatuated, go grab that pre-order and keep your fingers crossed for some U.S. tour dates in the very near future.
