((Sound Team)) Band Profile and Upcoming Los Angeles Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Austin's Sound Team were hand picked by The Arcade Fire to open for them at their sold-out Central Park Summerstage show. Their upbeat, retro psych-folk-alt-country with a heavy synth kick has been likened to everyone from Modest Mouse, Blonde Redhead, and old tour mates The Walkmen, to Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd and Krafwerk. Phew! That pretty much has all the bases covered.

There's something kind of spooky about their sound (maybe throw in an Interpol reference just for good measure), as they often use creepy chimes and ominous feedback-induced walls of sound as a foundation for their songs. However, they just as often incorporate four-part vocal harmonies and snappy percussion to lift the spirits of us listeners. Word on the street is that Sound Team just signed to Capitol? That's good, the majors need bands that don't suck, too.
