Speaking of albums that are going to be released on February 21st, one of the one's I'm looking forward to the most is the debut LP, Boo Hoo Hoo Boo, from the 8 piece Canadian band known as They Shoot Horses Don't They. Released on the Kill Rock Stars label, they describe the release as having, " Lyrical themes of desperation, betrayal and hardship, brought to light in this overly joyful jittery music". I don't know if that quote seems to promote the music or not, but trust me, it's good.
They also compare them to a few other bands, but I refuse to list all of them here sense I don't see the contection so out right, but one I do see is the Danielson Famile. If Bergman was still making movies, he might have this band on the soundtrack. How's that! You should know that these guys have shared the stage with Xiu Xiu and the de-funked Unicorns...so that says alot. Check out Emptyhead from Boo Hoo Hoo Boo, available 2/21.
