The band consists of Andrew McFarland(drums), William Kennedy(keys, glockenspiel), Parks Miller(bass), and Addison Adams(vocals, guitar) are influenced by anything from African traditional music to American hardcore.
Live they like to rearrange their songs, changing speeds and parts culminating in one epic coherrent piece. Much like an episdoe of Lost that had a meaning.

Sunspots is the brand new real world incarnation of Georgian Will Weber's bedroom recording project.
Influenced in it's tiered complexities by anything from the Flaming Lips, The Who and Dr. Dog to more recent envied experimentalists Animal Collective and Oberhofer. This track Special Secrets is so good, we'd like to keep it as just that. Locked up in the Tally Ho vault for our own listening.
But with Will describing the music thus...' The feeling of the songs is very grounded in a love for a nice psychedelic romp outside with your best friends', it's probably best we let this one out, I mean i love a psychedelic romp as much as the next man

If only Jamie harley could provide some kind of woozy video reel for my everyday life, it would probably be alot more interesting and i might have more friends....
Anyway, anyone who was at the recent Memoryhouse, How to Dress Well, Visons of Tree's and Prizes show at the Social that the genius Parisian (sometime Londener) provided visuals for will testify to his talent in turning the mundane into the sublime.
His new video for ANR's 'Endless Field of Mercury' captures for me that moment when laughter can turn to tears at any moment. Much like tuning into a channel Five documentary called ' The Whale with No Mouth' and realising it's for real

We were look enough to get a sneak viewing of this one while James Benson (Frat Dad) was over studying in the UK a few months ago. The comedy short focuses on a young punk rock band from New Jersey who by coincidence happen to play Frat Dad songs and also features Real Estate, Liam The Younger and Julian Lynch among others on the soundtrack.
Check out Frat Dad's awesome song Radiation Rush on our cassette tape Heavy Medicine.

It seems the trappings of Princeton popularity aren't quite enough for the Kivel family. After the success of 'Calypso Gold' the debut release on the great new London based singles label Jodie & Victor comes a split 7” featuring Matt Kivel's (Pinceton Bass and vocals) new band Mystery Claws and Long Beach based Sleeping Bags.
Following on from much acclaim for the other half of Princeton Jesse Kivel's project Kisses, Matt looks to not be outshadowed with his folky pop gem 'Phony Checks' featuring a bum-budget produced video paying reference to the opening of teen dreamer flick 'Almost Famous'.
The split's other half Sleeping Bags 'Canteloupe', gives nods to shoegazers My Bloody Valentine or Ride and in its furthest reaches Kraut rockers Neu. But there's still an inkling of that California summer landscaping and commerical intention that has served Princeton so well. You wouldn't even be surprised to find the Kivels hidden in the corner of the recording studio to lay claim to another new blog hit on this one.
For any burdgeoning family bands working away, heed the call. One band just ain't gonna cut it.
Note: Jones Brothers need not apply.
