Showing Up To Press The Flesh.



You know those times when one feels like they've been missing out on something? I kinda feel that way about We Are Scientists. Maybe I was turned off by all the blogger hype. Maybe I was too busy listening to Wolf Parade. Maybe I was just being an idiot. Yeah, that's probably it. Whatever the case I'm now hooked on this quirky trio from NYC. Their e.p. Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt is an interesting pastiche of jittery guitar lines, frantic drumming, and tight-ass grooves. Cribbing heavily from the UK pop-punk indie scene, WAS nonetheless manage to transfer that sound into something entirely all their own. For your listening (dis)pleasure:

We Are Scientists: Mucho Mas

We Are Scientists: Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt

i never listen to anything anyone forces on me unless i've heard it as well.

that said, i haven't heard much of we are scientists (or haven't heard any of wolf parade...and really don't want to. to each their own) but i'll give 'em a shot.
