Harlem “Witch Greens” video

Posted February 10th, 2009 by eric

The garage rock schtick has been done to death, but there’s always room for when it’s done well. Harlem is your band. Mixing in a bit of frantic, Pixies-style unpredictability with its retro-kitsch harmonies, Austin’s Harlem knows how to make a glorious lo-fi racket. I recommend listening to “The South of France” on the band’s MySpace page, which has been getting crazy play on Sirius XMU lately, or watching the video for “Witch Greens.” As GvsB pointed out back in August, Harlem’s description of itself is hard to top: “When kids are jumping on the bed playing tennis rackets like guitars. We are the music that is playing in their brains.”–Harlem, on Harlem

    I read bout them on GvsB (was it really August?!) and liked what I heard, downloaded the Mp3 and then promptly forgot about them.

    That happens far too often these days. Sigh.
