Mt St Helens Vietnam Band - Self Titled
This Seattle five piece are really starting to create a buzz about them. With the bouncy indie rock opener, 'Who's Asking,' giving a two and a half minute taste of exactly what they are about. Fast, happy indie, perfect music for its spring release. With Scott Colborn, knob twiddler for Arcade Fire and Boop favourites Animal Collective behind their array of danceable indie hits, 2009 could well be a big year for them. Take the vocal harmonies of Wolf Parade and mix it with the fast paced, intense drum and guitar work of The Thermals. All good.
