Good News For Hipsters Who Are Tired Of Bad Music



The Stands make good music. This is a fact. If you saw them when they visited us a few months ago, you know this. Sure, they wear their influences plainly on their sleeves, but these boys can play and write songs that its pretty safe to say, would've been hits in the 60s. Unfortunately, these days their retro pop makes them somewhat of novelty act, and not even a plug from Noel Gallagher, or a tour with Jet was able to bring them into the mainstream consciousness, so of course a post on this blog won't do too much either, but...

They have a new album coming out called "Horse Fabulous"... yes, it is called "Horse Fabulous"... and, if you like good music, you might want to take a listen to it... not because it's cool, or revolutionary... but just because its kinda nice and your ears might enjoy it...

I briefly saw The Stands opened for Brendan Benson a while ago. They reminded me of the Rolling Stones a lot but I could be thinking about some other band.

I'd just like to point out that Brooklyn Vegan has put up nearly 15 posts in the timespan between now and your last post. Don't start something you can't finish, sucka!

a band that is meant to be seen live. caught them at the virgin megastore in london yesterday and was v. impressed. recordings do no justice to this band.
