Land of Cool!

When I heard Land of Talk was coming to Conn, I couldn't believe it. Being one of the best new bands of the year, I was surprised we could book them. They were great live... and Elizabeth Powell (lead vocals) is cute as hell. Apparently LoT has managed to hide out in the depths of the indie underground.
Let's just hope Starbucks doesn't get to them any time soon...
Check out Elizabeth Powell (North Am.'s 1st female alligator wrestler!) talk about her fam here

Band to check out: Sea Wolf

My big sis turned me on to this singer-songwriter (Alex Church) who refuses to take full credit for his band, despite his being its only invariable member (Church is also a member of L.A. band Irving). Sea Wolf is a fresh take on indie rock, combining vocals resembling Elliot Smith and Sonic Youth-like instrumentals. Based in L.A., Church's music fails to mirror the glitzy, get-ahead attitude so common to the City of Angels and its music scene, but rather has echoes of more rural landscapes, such as the Sierra Foothills that Church stems from. How is this band still unsigned?
