As Ethan already said, me and him totally study all the time and stuff. Super-Industrious, which is why I’m sitting in my room, eating Oreo’s and listening to Super Tennis. I was reading David Harvey’s Enigma of Capital and getting real smart about modern global economics, but that’s besides the point and this band is just too rad.
This North London 3 piece with an affinity for 90’s gaming and taxidermy bears (it looks like one on the covers of their EP and full length) has a lot of talent. I’d argue they’re on par with Johnny Foreigner and the like. They have an eclectic mix of joyfully shouted vocals, billowing mathy guitars, awesomely all-over-the-place drumming, and tight jams that don’t ever get repetitive. I don’t know if they broke up or not. Their last.fm page says were, I don’t know. Point is, they have an Self-Titled EP and a full length about a party. The EP is what I listened to this morning and figured I’d throw it up. It’ll definitely make adjust mood ring from “bummed out cause it’s not Friday” to “totally stoked forever.” Get at it.
