Megapuss

All hold tight, for on October 7th Megapuss is poised to destroy...in a good way. Devendra Banhart and Fabrizio Moretti (of Strokes, and currently Little Joy, fame) constitute the heart of this year's surprise supergroup. Combining Banhart's passion for quirky genre exploration and Moretti's rock sensibilities, this album, at least for me, promises to be a treat...a synergy of seemingly disparate yet delightfully harmonious talents. The album is titled Surfing, and, again, will hit stores on Oct. 7th. This song should be enticing enough for further listening.

Megapuss - "Crop Circle Jerk '94"

The group is finishing up tour dates on the West Coast with Moretti's Little Joy (who'll actually be continuing on and will be at the Mercury Lounge in November), but keep your ears to the pavement--I suspect there will be more. Here's one from Little Joy.

Exciting stuff coming out of LA these days huh?
