The Bug Club
The Bug Club is quickly, out of nowhere, becoming one of my favorite new bands. They're just an absolute joy. Pure Particles was exhibit A, Launching Moondream One was exhibit B, and here we have Intellectuals. It's just an EP (and I guess those other ones are too), but it's a hell of a thing: five songs, all recorded live in one take and released as a single track. Weird choice, but it's fun! I have no idea when these guys are going to come to North America (they're very Welsh and currently just tour around the UK), but when they do they're absolutely going on the top of my list.
