This Microwave World
Lovers of Canadian indie might call the sound of Austin, Texas, outfit, This Microwave World, 'Hot Hot Heat meets Tangiers'. Although on the band's label website it's suggested they are Jonathan Fire Eater crossed with The Stranglers. Formed three years ago, band members include Sean O'Neal (Guitar/Vocals), Evan Lawrence (Organ), Brandon Loe (Bass), Erin Mikulenka (Synth/Vocals), and Kevin Bybee (drums).
The guest appearance of Spoon's Britt Daniel, doing backing vocals on "The Party Line", has given this band some added attention (the attention of *Sixeyes included).
Give them a listen and let me know what you think... and let the band know as well.
You can purchase their first three EPs, t-shirts, and buttons, on their homepage. You can also find their debut full length, Red States, on their label, Tight Spot Records - official release date is July 19th.
