it bugs me when a band has a really good song (julianne) and then the next one is awful (the second one on the list).

Re: recommend new indie rock / pop

I'll take your word for it.

Re: recommend new indie rock / pop

with a female singer that looks like a boy. i want to marry her...

...tis all in peeces, all cohaerence gone...

Re: recommend new indie rock / pop

I have to say i don't really hear the Meneguar comparison with TCK. They sound to me just like sloppy 90's indie rock.

Re: recommend new indie rock / pop

that's what meneguar used to sound like!

Re: recommend new indie rock / pop

teenage cool kids are good stuff.

Re: recommend new indie rock / pop

yes.

Re: recommend new indie rock / pop

great, the tune on their myspace off that is awesome

Re: recommend new indie rock / pop

i think you distroed the hot cops 7" - worth a look if you didn't.

Re: recommend new indie rock / pop

personally im not into it, but i figured tar...feathers would fit well into this thread

Re: recommend new indie rock / pop

yep, i distroed hot cops, but can't recall what that is like.

i don't like tar... feathers.

i could listen to "stuff that sounds like meneguar" all day so name names!!!!!!   (except johnny foreigner)

Re: recommend new indie rock / pop

go on myspace and do a search for "meneguar" with "sounds like" or "influenced by" selected.
