Your 33 Black Angels
A band after my own heart, I swear (I wish) ...
Brooklyn's Your 33 Black Angels was "dreamed in a West Harlem flophouse. There was a bottle of Wild Turkey, grown men in boxers, and far too much bachata music going around." I like it.
But really, these three New Yorkers sound like the Unicorns got grittier and more garage-y. They're old fashion, utilizing thumpin', simple bass lines, rough vocals, fun little synth ditties, and playful yet solid and confident drumming over production glitz, pitch-perfect harmonies, and choppy, cut-to-the-chase hooks.
I like them very much. My Y33BA "informant" said he hopes that the band doesn't get too big, and I agree: these three are too precious and warm. I don't think the limelight would suit them ...
