The Loud Report: Volcano, I'm Still Excited!!
It sort of sounds like they tried a band-name generator web page and went with the results, doesn't it? Their sound doesn't contradict that lack of regard exactly, but it's more of a giddy, childlike disregard, mixed with plenty of psychedelia and some seriously lusty post-punk-y beats to back it all up. Kind of like, I dunno, Mates of State and Of Montreal with Bloc Party's rhythm section. (I hate describing bands that way... one wants to be accurate, but not to annoy people with what might as well be gibberish to them, or make them think one is showing off. If you don't know the name-check-ees above, please consider it an invitation to do some Googling and discover some wonderful stuff.) Got a couple tracks for you at the band's own site, plus this other one over there. Really nice harmonies on all of them - and barely two words strung together that make sense, but hey.
