The Beets

Has the 'Shitgaze' backlash started yet? No, just Wavves? Ok then, before everyone starts claiming they never really liked Times New Viking, No Age, etc, I'll quickly recommend the ultra-lofi and really cool band The Beets. Not to be confused with the fictional band of the same name from personal childhood favorite cartoon Doug, these guys are from New York and play stripped-down, shouty, sing-alongy garage, not a million miles away from Thee Oh Sees. Their album 'Spit in the Face of People Who Don't Want to be Cool' is available now through old blankethead's label Captured Tracks.
