Guess who was featured in this Sunday’s NEW YORK TIMES?? My add this week, that’s who!!! Check it out here: their picture’s to the left and the bit about them is at the bottom.
We all already know Mermaids by now, thanks to that totally sweet 7″ I’ve been working on since the end of August. Now it’s time for the full-length, and it is equally-to-even-more incredible! As the NYT says, they play “jangly surf and garage-influenced music with a sharp sense of melody” and that “the band’s idea of beach-pop is flexible and occasionally subversive.” AKA it TOTALLY RULES.
For more info on this insanely cool band from Atlanta, with ties to Black Lips and just about everyone else in the ATL music scene, start here, move on to their totally sweet label Pretty Ambitious Records, and then contact me for a download if your station didn’t already get a hard copy!
RIYL: Black Lips, The Beach Boys, The Barbaras, The Magic Kids, The Soft Pack, Best Coast, The Intelligence
