This Birmingham band was in Memphis last night.
They played at the Poplar Lounge. Not exactly room for a huge audience, but a great place for a band swinging through town that hasn’t developed a huge audience here.
I only knew them because their record was playing over the speaker at a record store in Birmingham when Matt and I were there last month. The first song came on and we both looked at each other and said, “Do we know this?” I guess we think we should know all good music. We hadn’t heard it and it had a great electro, dancey sound. Sounded like it could have been old. Turns out it was the Grenadines. The singers are married. She is adorable. Long pretty blond hair and pale skin. Plus, she knows how to use it. The perfect female front person. I’ve loved the whole record. I also like that this is a great southern indie band that isn’t following in the footsteps of the only southern music that seems to get hype. Music like the Alabama Shakes. They are fine if that’s your style. It’s not mine so I like to see this sound being made, too. Check it out! Lots of good loud guitar, slight 90’s sound and some electro. WIN WIN
Oh yea they are playing at Proud Larry’s tonight (saturday)
Us at Charlemagne Music – think the formal name is record exchange
