SUEDEHEAD: (so) Frantic: EP

Sep 23, 2011

Second four-song vinyl EP from this new southern California band featuring members of Hepcat and the Distraction. The first single from Suedehead was an instant classic, so expectations were high for this one. This band perfectly combines mod, soul, two tone, and Britpop influences into an amazingly strong sound. In some respects, it comes off a lot like what Style Council were trying to do, but instead of being unlistenable it is some of the best music I have heard in years. The second single continues that trend, I am happy to say. Great vocals, amazing songs and playing; this sounds like a band that has been together for five years and toured the world. In reality, they are just getting started and I cannot wait to see where things go from here.
