SPIN calls their track 'Candy Stairs'
a "garage-pop near-classic", and it's an accurate hyphen-rich
description of the music they make.. On their newest 2009 EP, Vampires
Fill Their Waterbeds With Blood, the trio continues to bounce out vital
little gems that feel like you've been listening to them all your
mixed in-between your Kinks and ELO albums. Herman Jolly's whispering
crackled voice permeates the spare titanic rock of the title track,
while the entire band finds a Sunday-stroll groove for the lush
"Windless" and enters epic terrain yet again with "Soul Tack" and
"Skins of Bears". Soaring pop choruses saddle up next to the chunky
rhythmic din of "Soul Tack" and the message is clear: Kids, it's still
ok to dance.
The name came from
Badger, who bartends at the iconic Re-bar in Seattle, says,"I was
picking up broken glass, and said 'Oww, it's the little pieces that'll
always get you!'"
