New Music: Appetite

California's Appetite was originally conceived by Teddy Briggs as nothing more than a songwriting project. However, it quickly blossomed and became much, much, more. The band's debut effort Scattered Smothered Covered drops on August 16th, and delivers a consolidated effort of song composition, studio intricasies and delightfully organic feel reminiscent of Feels-era Animal Collective.

The record is being accompanied by a fantastic video for the first single, "Tussy" (above), as well as a quick west coast tour that will see performances in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, and Los Angeles (below). While we have yet to see the band live, if the record is any indication, this would be a great time to get out there and indulge in their sound. Between the loopy noise tracks, layered vocals, and insistent rhythms, Appetite is creating some of the most creative jams we've heard in a while.
