These guys will get big fast. And soon. In fact they already are. I saw them last night at the Green House. If you like fast fast pop then you'll like them. Watch the video. They kind of remind me of Los Campesinos, but less orchestral. Good stuff and the live show was both magnanimous and intimate. They brought a parachute!
I have some pics on my flickr account here. And Rachael wrote them up here.
Wow. Just wow. Searching for the Mae Shi video link led me to this gem which must be heard. If you haven't heard all of the hoopla you might want to see this before you watch. This is priceless in its own right, especially if you turn it up so you can hear the reactions of the non-Bales.
Brother was pretty cool too. We didn't see them but we heard them from the stairwell and the drummer was pretty amazing.
