Your 33 Black Angels

Your 33 Black Angels

Sometimes a band comes out of left field, devoid of hype, but deserving of praise because they write some damn catchy, rocking songs. Think the scrappy-ness of Pavement plus the hooky-ness of the Strokes--except then Your 33 Black Angels craft a song as jangly, yet shambolic and really, really gorgeous as "Town & Country" and blow all those comparisons out of the water.

Holy crap, they are good.
