Default Re: The Central Standard - Listen Band

It's pretty good. Reminds me of some other specific bands, but I like them more than just saying "sounds like ___". It's interesting enough to hold your attention. I don't normally listen to bands like that but they're good.

I like:
- the higher-register guitar, kind of Robin Guthrie-ish
- the singer is good
- Each of the 4 songs are totally unique, they don't sound the same
- Funky at times, good drummer

I would advise them to listen to an album called "Wire Post to Wire" by The Standard (ironic that the band names are similar). That band was way more intense, and not as poppy as these guys, but for some reason I bet the Central Standard might like that album.
