Saturday night I went to see a few bands play at T.T. The Bear’s in Cambridge and I just wanted to give a quick reccomendation that people check out two bands:
First up is Muck and the Mires, who sport a great retro-style garage rock sound. They are probably more of an acquired taste as they are definitely retro sounding.
Second, but definitely not least, is The Mooney Suzuki. They’ve been around since 1999 from the looks of things, but still practically no one has heard of them, and that’s a crime. They are fanastic. They too have a great garage-rock sound, but not as "retro" and with a bit more of a funky sound. If you like Lenny Kravitz’s more rockin’ tunes (think "Are You Gonna Go My Way", which, let’s face it, is a song that could be played 20 times in row and it would still sound awesome) then you’ll probably love The Mooney Suzuki. Their stuff is on iTunes, so please check them out. They get my highest level of approval and reccomendation.
