Back home in Chicago my buddy Mike introduced me to the first notes I had heard of , a Portland based indie rock band that has a bit of that -style garage psychedelia that bodes really well for their recorded material. Everything I’ve heard so far is great. The band is playing in LA for free tonight and has a ton of tour dates in the near future with bands like The Submarines, Toro Y Moi, , , Woven Bones, Blouse and .

"How Can You Love Me" 'live' from the Casbah 4.11.2011

Their promo team writes…
