San Francisco's Social Studies are one of those rare beasts that straddle the fine line between indie-rock and indiepop. Is it a poppy rock song, or a rockin' pop song? Who knows. There's some plunking keys, burly guitar riffs, and that Natalia sure does have a nice voice, so do we really need to pigeon-hole it? Their 2 track Hourglass EP is out now (you can download it here for free). Both tracks are off the full length A Wind Up Wooden Heart, which is due out early next year.
The stuff I post on here is for primarily for sampling purposes. If you like something you hear, you should go buy the album. And while you're at it, you should buy a t-shirt so the world can see that you support good things.
If you're a band and want something taken down, just say so. I'd say you should sleep on it first. Or at least have some cookies. If you're certain you still want something removed, I can make that happen.
If you're a band and you think that you fit in with what I talk about, then let me know right now! I'll put up a nice little blurb, and a picture, and some files (if they're available). It'll be a good time.
