Cory over at Absolutely Kosher brought Ex-Boyfriends to my attention with perfect timing considering my re-kindled interest in XTC and the accompanying power-pop kick I’m on. Dig their Drums and Wires era vibe—mixed in with a touch of Archers of Loaf and 999. Album’s available next week and in March the band begins making rounds out West. Ready, set, pogo!

    Yeah, I guess I hear a bit of "Drums and Wires" in there, but really sounds more "Boy's Don't Cry"-era Cure to me. Either way, good stuff.
