Johns - House Of Wrongheads
Label: Self Released
Well shit, I really liked that The Fucking Hotlights record that came out a couple years back, and had no idea that they had already broken up, and that half of the band has this new band called Johns. I mean, where was I when this happened? Nobody can use a phone around here?
Apparently the half of the band that left, took all of the distortion pedals with them, because this new band eschews the bombastic noise-metal of The Fucking Hotlights material, and goes for a more layered and nuanced skewed indie rock sound. Of the six songs here, you can glean a few different potential influences; British Sea Power, The Kinks, Young Widows, The Walkmen, Retribution Gospel Choir, maybe Chokebore? It's mellower than 90% of what gets posted here, but never boring...I wouldn't fuck around with no boring shit.
I'm into it, and would assume you will be into it too.
