Americana isn’t Brooklyn’s usual hipster fare. That’s what makes Proud Simon a bit noteworthy. Starting as an impromptu jam session between frontman Brian Keenan and his cousin in the garage of a modest Rochester, NY home, Proud Simon has since packed up and taken up residence in Williamsburg. The band has evolved into a group of four who already have two albums under their belt. Two tracks from the band’s most recent disc, Night of Criminals, can be previewed below.
