Bottom of the Hudson

bottom of the hudson
Instead of seeing New Wave revival bands popping up all over the place (Franz Ferdinand, the Killers, the Stills ... ), Power-Pop groups are becoming more common. My new favorite such band is Bottom of the Hudson. Great hooks, fun lyrics, good song length, etc. This band's got it down pretty well.
They just released a new EP called Holiday Machine, which you can buy along with the Omaha Record (their debut album) at Absolutely Kosher Records.
Listen to Holiday Machine and Riot Act (both songs are from the new Holiday Machine CDEP).

Other miscellaneous information ...
Uh, the group is from Charlottesville, and I think that's where they get their folky edge. For a pop band, they have a very loose feel ... sort of Pavement-inspired or something. I like.
