The Tony Castles rock it their own way.

Brooklyn's The Tony Castles are a new-ish band (is 2008 new... I don't know) that kinda give off a worldly math-y rock vibe. But here's what this band all up and does. This band douses all that worldly math-rock stuff with a good dollop of serious soul. And hell, with the world rock and the math-rock and the soul, they maybe even thrown in a little bit of... GASP... funk. Funk is kinda funky these days.

The trio reminds me of another band I recently talked about, Twin Shadow. Twin Shadow is pretty cool, but that's a topic best left to an older band profile. And The Tony Castles also have a few noodle-y guitar parts that sound a little like Foals. Oh, and you know, sometimes when their rhythms get their most wacky, the band sounds just a little bit like Deerhoof. Just a little bit.

Finally, singer/bassist Paul Sicilian has received some Prince comparisons. Prince is pretty cool too. You should check this new-ish band out (assuming we agree 2008 is still new-ish). They'll rock you out and make you feel all saucy at the same time. Rocking out in a kinda saucy way really just kinda rules.
