i feel like a proper bandwagon jump-er on-er!
they come from the Mid West but have settled in NYC, and it looks like they are tearing it upppp. there's 6 of them, they sound less like Vampire Weekend than people are making out, and their album 'Fort Nightly' is dead dead good.
i know everyone is bumming 'The Plot' but i think 'Navy Wives' is the best track on the album. it's the shakers that really win it.
the band describe their sound as "honky-tonk calypso" which is possibly one of the best self descriptions ever. pianos, shakers, cowbells, shouty choruses. what more could a girl want! check it ooooout.
