the district attorneys "boomtown"

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

from all the reports i had read re: sxsw, athens boys done good, the district attorneys, made a pretty big splash, or at least they made a nice little wave amongst the festivities attendants. rightfully so, their new record which was just released yesterday via this is american mausic, slowburner, is a record great listen, and can only imagine their live show to be something pretty damn awesome.

the record, musically, is kinda hard to pin down. they kinda sound like a southern bred built to spill, who is more rem, than say crazy horse era neil young. its a damn catchy record, probably the catchiest i have heard all year, but its definitely not a one listen then forget about kinda record, its a listen and “oh shit i didnt catch that the first, second, third time around” kind of record. best of 2012? you betcha!

you can buy it via t.i.a.m. for a measly 5 bucks. more than worth it!
