Kurran & the Wolfnotes

Thanks to a great tip from a from a friend, I was able to catch London’s Kurran & the Wolfnotes at the Borderline last night. After seeing them live, it’s safe to say that their demos don’t even do the band a modicum of justice. The band’s debut single, “Whatabitch”, will be released Nov. 2nd via indie label Chess Club. Check out a fantastic live in-studio version of the track above.

“I’m fine, you’re fine. Stop wasting my time.”

England now has an answer to America’s infatuation with the music of Rivers Cuomo – Stagecoach. Angular, smart, and ultimately far more enjoyable than I even care to admit, the band’s new EP entitled We Got Tazers! is a five track collection (an additional remix makes it six) of infectious pop/rock. The groups self-ascribed myspace motto – “We like to party, we like to party, we like to party,” holds remarkably true. The disc’s title track, which is anchored by a sugary made-for-radio chorus, is followed in full force by four others with similar pop instrumentation. Included for sampling below is one of the disc’s more decidedly alt-rock tracks – “Break”. Alcopop! will launch the new EP next Saturday at Notting Hill Arts Club.
