Weekend Soundtrack - Pickwick Is My New Favorite Band
I've kept Pickwick's soulful rock-n-roll on repeat this past week. When I found this video of their bravura performance inside a bike shop, I had to share.
As BikeHandsome said recently of frontman Galen Disston, "I want his voice to melt over me like warm honey" or something. Anyway, the guy's got pipes.
If you're already a fan of bands like Alabama Shakes and the White Stripes, then you'll dig Pickwick. (Sorry musicians! I know you hate to be compared to other bands.)
Pickwick's new album won't be released until March 12, but it is available on preorder. They've only got three songs on Spotify at the moment. I was able to find a few more songs via Grooveshark. NPR also has a free download of one of their songs. Just for you.
Awesomely, they are on tour! I'll be seeing them at the Independent on March 8. I'm expecting big things from them in the next few months. The last band I featured did pretty well after they graced my virtual pages.
And I never would have found these guys if it weren't for KEXP. If you're hungry for awesome new music, check out this amazing independent radio station. And then throw them some money.
