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:
