((The Uglysuit)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

I'm definitely excited about these guys. The Uglysuit are a new band out of Oklahoma City that play orchestral guitar pop that's space-y, sunshine-y and sort of Shins-y. And it's unbelievably catchy. I feel good listening to these songs. The Uglysuit's clean melodies are for the most part optimistic, yet sometimes there's the unmistakable twinge of sadnesss, but they're always 100% sing-a-long-able. These six guys are new to the scene (all are just 20-23 years of age), but will most assuredly be around for quite some time.

Their phenomenal debut is due out in August of '08 on Quarterstick Records (part of Touch & Go) and the boys and girls are going to love it. As of this writing, The Uglysuit are gearing up to play some dates with Iron and Wine and word on the street is that The Flaming Lips are big fans, too. (They are from Oklahoma City, after all). A really good new band that's here to stay.
