This band: Kinch. I'm not really sure how to describe them quite yet - piano rock, flowing guitars and very floaty transitions, but it's solid and interesting indie rock and it's best. Some of that bittersweetness that just gets me. Their The Economic Chastisement EP is up for free download. And I believe they just got off tour with Dear and The Headlights. So yeah, they're cool.
I've been on a total pop kick lately, probably because I'm coming off of my Cute Is What We Aim For interview (which was a major success and surely one of the best interviews I've ever done - I'll post a blog about it later). So in honor of this change of pace, I recommend Sparks the Rescue.
