BLOWING UP: Sea Monsters

With Nostradamus-like precision, I will now predict the future of music…

Sea Monster gave me free music, then changed their name to Sea Monsters and it took me a while to find them again.  I’m giving them free publicity anyway, because they’re kinda awesome.  Be weary though, because there are like thirty other bands name Sea Monster, or some derivative of it.  The Sea Monsters I am referring to are comprised of two former members of A Brief Smile (DL Tashjian & Jared O’Connell), another guy named Sam, and that’s literally all I could find on the band.  That and the fact that they’re from Brooklyn, New Yawk.

The band might have come out with some kind of EP, but the interweb has no information on it.  All I know is that they gave a free download away on their site and I gave them my email for it.  They have a show on July 14th at Webster Hall, so you should go see them.  I, on the other hand, will be rocking out at the Stone Pony with Donavon Frankenreiter.  I would be there otherwise though, promise!

The band’s music sounds like ARMS, but the songs have a style that reminds me sometimes of Tokyo Police Club and other times of poppy Death Cab for Cutie.  There, that’s enough references to give me mad indie cred.  (Indie cred can be used to buy see through tank tops, tube socks, and used galoshes at most local thrift stores).  Haha, I’m just kidding you silly hipsters!  Anyway, here’s one of their best songs, though they are all quite good…

Sea Monsters – Dark Vineyard Day

When I find more info, you will be the first to know!  Or maybe they will update their myspaces?
