Eagle*Seagull

The last couple of weeks the Lincoln (that's Nebraska) band Eagle*Seagull has been getting a great deal of press. I'm particularly engaged by the song Photograph. When I listen to Eli Mardock's vocals I hears snippets of the Cure, some say Arcade Fire, others say a little bit of Wolf Parade. Eagle*Seagull isn't as good as any of the bands previously mentioned but they have potential. Download the song, its from their website, no need to feel bad.


Also
March 17 they are playing The Vaudeville Mews (cool place) in Des Moines with Kite Pilot.

1. Public New Years Resolution: Attend at least 1 live event a month.
2. Beards are cool, even shitty ones
3. Like the new too poppy graphic

Love that song. I'm particularly intrigued as I live just up the road from these guys. (Omaha) And I have grown to like the whole wobbly vocal thing, ala Arcade Fire, Wolf Parade. I'll definitely check them out in Omaha some time. They have been generating some buzz; I just heard this song played on my favorite Internet radio station last week, kexp.org in Seattle.

Just got around to listening to this. Crap, it's good. Vocals are Robert Smithy, but whose aren't these days. Thanks for turning me on.
