Having seen Cooper Brown take apart the Garage, I thought it would be worth getting a hold of some of their recorded material.

Cooper Brown play indie-punk-rock type music. As with just about everything out there today, it isn't really something you've never heard before. The good news is that it's all a great combination of most of what you've heard before. 7 tunes, each one somewhat an indie u-turn from the last. There's some poppy stuff (Not Your Day) there's some way-out stuff (Netsurf Deluxe - it's awesome) and there's some punky harsh stuff (The Dumb Can't). All of it is pretty loud, with yelly vocals and that nice rough guitar, course drumming and rumbley bass.

These guys play around London pretty much every other month or so, so I advise you go see them and pick up some of their tunes. Very solid indeed.
