Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band have really caught my imagination today. Sounding like a swell, regular bunch of melodic indie kids, by the second track you realise yr listening to a slightly out-of-the-ordinary unit. The drummer's apparently 13 ish but they seem to have the ability to blend the kind of head-whirling alternative pop/rock beloved of Vampire Weekend & The Strokes via the technicality of Muse whilst showcasing a remarkable dynamic energy & instinct for the finer points of the modern rock cannon. I think they're as tight and melodic as Kings of Leon at their best for instance but these don't make me wince as the once bearded Southern fried brethren have the wanton ability to do. I reckon fans of Broken Social Scene & contemporary proggier bands such as Secret Machines will proper dig these but also folks who don't like their rawk grooves smeared in embarrasing indulgence. A really excellent, compelling self-titled effort, on CD/LP
