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

Murals are a new band from Louisville that has a super smooth sunshine pop sound that's incredibly easy on the ears. But it's not sunshine pop in that super bright way (like Foster the Pumped Up People or whoever). It's sunshine pop in that super.... chill way. Yeah. I just said chill in 2012. But that's what this is. What do you want me to do? (Their debut EP is called "On a Passing Cloud," guys.)

Think of Murals as somewhere in the middle of the easy breezy spectrum between Ariel Pink and Real Estate. But there's definitely a retro acid mushroom flower power thing at play here too. If these guys could get a hold of a time machine I could see them shooting the bird or kicking the can (this is the late '60s remember... that's how people talked) with the Mamas and the Papas or even Crosby, Stills and Nash (not sure about Young though, you know?).

Now here's something else I wanted to throw out there - Wes Anderson should really consider including a Murals song (oh sorry, the internet tells me we’re calling songs "cuts" now) in his next film. The trio would fit in perfectly with Anderson's ornately pleasant world. (So Wes, if you're interested I'll gladly have my assistant schedule some time for a call with you next month after my schedule "breathes" a bit better.) Anyway, good band. Peace. Love. Murals. Chill.
