Yuppies LP Out On Dull Tools In September; Show @ OB’s

There it is. The album art from this Omaha, Nebraska band. I enjoy listening to the three track preview of their upcoming LP on Dull Tools (LINK). Like label mates Parquet Courts, their rock ‘n roll takes the form of verbosity – the good kind. Loads of words, loads of sweet noise. Looks like they’ll be touring in and around the Midwest/Northeast regions of the United States. In Boston, they’ll be at O’Briens Pub on October 1st. Check ’em out!
