Last month, Mojo ran a piece about two brothers from Hicksville, who were set to drop a debut record for 4AD. It was described as music for "fans of Todd Rundgren and Foxygen" and a "heavenly, audacious conflagration of magical mystery Beatles, Nilsson and Head-era Monkees."
Of course, I both couldn't wait to hear it and didn't believe a word of the same ol' British hype.
"Do Hollywood" drops on October 14th. After hearing the first two lead tracks and seeing the above performance on The Tonight Show, I can say unequivocally, Mojo nailed it. I honestly cannot recall a new record by a new artist I have been this excited over.
