RFSL Band of Week: Thailand
Have you checked our new sister Blog in L.A. yet? Here is Joe's first "Band of the Week" pick on Radio Free Silver Lake: After spending several months playing local venues like The Silver Lake Lounge and The Scene Bar, Thailand is taking a break to finish off their first album before summer-time rolls around. If you haven’t heard them before, you really ought to head to their myspace page and download the four tracks the band has posted. They’re all really goddamn good and have made frequent appearances in mix cds I've made for friends since I first had the band recommended to me last year. The songs are immediately likable indie pop, with lyrics that are both smart and catchy, and are at least a little reminiscent of that early Manchester sound. While the band hides out to create more, the least you can do is to bone up on the music they’re gracefully providing you for free, yes?
