Fluffy Lumbers is one dude. His name is Samuel. Samuel Franklin. He's from Ridgewood. Ridgewood, New Jersey. Wow, I guess this super concise & snappy pop just makes the short sentences spew out of me.

So here comes some more lo-fi, reverb-heavy garage-pop sweetness that will take you away to more innocent days. This sound has been heard recently if you've listened to Beach Fossils, Cheap Time, Real Estate, Titus Andronicus and Wavves. But I was told recently that naming other bands when writing about one band is "hack-y" so I guess I'll stop that.

Or maybe I'll just say that Fluffy Lumbers sounds like EVERY BAND UNDER THE SUN! How's that for hack? (They don't, of course.)

Anyway, Fluffy Lumber's music just sort of makes me feel good. And happiness is bound to happen when you write songs about drinking Swiss Miss on Christmas. And here you thought all these up-and-coming lo-fi reverb bands just sang about sand.

On a side note, Fluffy Lumbers does this cover of "Dreams" by The Cranberries that you should listen to. I'm not sure if it's one of the best or one of the worst covers I've ever heard. You tell me.

Fluffy Lumbers play Shea Stadium, on Saturday, January 30th.
