Earl Greyhound

Who is Earl Greyhound? Well, the question would be better phrased as "what is Earl Greyhound?"

The answer: only like the one of the coolest bands ever!!! Cheesy, I know - but this is a band that I've been trying to share with everyone.

On Some Records (the label founded by the great Walter Schreifels of Gorilla Biscuits, Quicksand, Rival Schools, etc.), this band out of Brooklyn seriously knows how to put together a good tune. Full of complex melodies and harmonies, Earl Greyhound absolutely kicks ass live. Their three-piece ensemble sounds more like a five piece. While they know how to mellow it out and make you feel all emotional, you'll probably walk out talking about their amazing jam sessions.

While I hate putting labels on music, I'd say that their sound is a blend of Zepplin and post-hardcore with some glam mixed in for fun. In other words, good. If you want to hear them kick ass, check out "S.O.S.", while if you're looking for some pop, listen to "It's Over". Either way you can't go wrong.

Highly, highly recommended!
