((Noah And The Whale)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Noah and the Whale, huh? I'm going to start a band called Abraham and the Ten Commandments. But who needs biblical accuracy when you've got catchy little ditties like these. This merry band of four from London make slightly-more-substantial-than-twee rock mixed in with a little bit of lo-fi folk that's generally good-natured. Sometimes ukuleles and banjos and horns are called upon to supply the bounce to this guitar pop.

Apparently the band are huge fans of Wes Anderson, which is worth noting only because Noah and the Whale could provide the soundtrack to all those slow-motion shots Anderson he now uses in every single one of his movies. The band are hyping up, having recently played U.K. shows with Broken Social Scene and Feist, and they are set to play 2008's Lollapalooza festival in Chicago. So anyway, Noah and the Whale kind of sound like Jens Lekman meets Adam Green. Kinda.
