Epone by Red Bellows (2011)
Kind of Like: Radiohead, Mars Volta, Margot and the Nuclear So & Sos, Portugal. The Man
Genres: Ambient, Experimental, Progressive, Indie
"Red Bellows combines jazzy and progressive tendencies with smooth indie rock, adding keys and electronics to morph their sound even more. Vocalist Marc Pellegrino's grimy voice works to the band's strength, working well with the psychedelic moments of tracks such as the harmonica supported chorus of opener "L.S. Blues" or the Radiohead-like "Maps". The band is offering the EP Epone for free, and it is a must download."
Definitely agree with this reviewer. They are a highly accessible, nice catchy psychedelic band. The band is offering it for free, but make sure you check out further stuff by them.
