Finest Dearest//Pendulum

Yeah, the Bay Area is pretty far from here, but it's Local Music Friday!
Tell me...what is this Local Music Fridays?

We played a seriously fun show with Finest Dearest at IM Automata Chino in Jersey City a few months back. They are sweet people who play quality rock and roll outta SF.

Sonically, it's hard to avoid the Sleater Kinney comparison on many tracks, but this one highlights the elements in their sound that make them distinct and original. I hear lots of stuff going on, including Death Cabby melodies and maybe even something that harkens back to the Nilsson in those poppy "la las." Of course, there's more than a touch of lo-fi-ish indie rock that runs though the whole album.
