Taking influence from all the classic indie rock bands like Yo La Tengo, Dandy Warhols and Pixies, it’s hard not to love Seattle’s The Purrs. The band has been knocking out music for the past 10 years and have just self-released their sixth album “Tearing Down Paisley Garden.” With psychedelic hooks like that in “Only Dreaming” you’ll want to love and hold them too. For a good time, just Purr.
Anyone with a penchant for that UK brand of paisley psychedelic rock will dig this unsigned Seattle-based band. It’s the kind of sound I never get tired of. And The Purrs fourth full length album, Amused, Confused & More Bad News, is full of those iconic UK influences – from Jesus & Mary Chain, Echo & The Bunnymen, Oasis, and The Verve. It’s a well-worn and familiar path, but it feels really good. Slip it on and see for yourself.
