Some Tasty New Tunes: Eagle And Talon

Eagle And Talon are a duo from Los Angeles who we just got wind of on the internets myspaces technology. Usually we're pretty tough to win over with the "I'll listen for two seconds and see if it sticks" myspace practice, but these two grabbed us immediately. Their sound is an upbeat, somewhat garagey, often dissonant, yet entirely accessible one. At times it's reminiscent of Sleater Kinney, but it throws in just enough dischord and experimentation to boldly maintain its own territory. If you like what you hear (and we do), then might we suggest stopping by the Hemlock Tavern on January 29th? The band will be up from LA to play a gig for your purty little NorCal ears.
