I've been looking forward to buying this album for the past 2 months...which is when I first heard of this Brooklyn based band. They carry a great new wave punk sound, while also conjuring the soul of Brian Wilson.
Check out there myspace, here, and listen to their cover of Radiohead's "Exit Music (For a Film)", here.
I've listened to the band Eastmountainsouth since they released their one and only album back in 2003. Unfortunately, this dynamite duo called it quites a few years after. Enter the solo career of Peter Bradley Adams. I was re-introduced to this album recently, and let's just say 1 or all of the songs make an appearance on my iTunes ever hour or so. Just plain solid, good.
Check out his music here.
You may recognize the lovely lady above as actress Zooey Deschanel (you know, the girl from Elf, Winter Passing, Almost Famous, etc. . The dude who is along side her is the musician M. Ward, you may have heard of him. Anyway, they're releasing an album together in March...it's going to be great.
You can download one of their live sessions here.
Peace. - Caleb
