You Can Be A Wesley! & Husbands AKA – 11.07.09 – Muddy Waters

Man I like You Can Be A Wesley. I often wake with their songs already playing in my head.

Rolling into town on the 7th to play a rocker with HUSBANDS AKA & Patrick Brownson at Muddy Waters, a night before they hit up EAT YOUR HEART OUT BOSTON @ Church supporting DEERTICK. 

Have seen them at the Monkey House two times prior, hope the downtown location treats them well and they get some randoms in off the street.

The warm, vintage sounds on Boston-based quartet You Can Be A Wesley’s debut full-length were recorded straight to two-inch tape last summer by Jeremy Mendicino of fellow Beantown locals (and Hardly Art signees) Pretty And Nice.

Heard Like Us presents the ideal feel-good summertime soundtrack. 

Though poppy hooks, whimsical imagery, handclaps and tambourines shimmer throughout, the record is not overly sweet. It features Joanna Newsome-esque vocals and memorable sing-along choruses while also presenting clear rock ‘n’ roll sensibilities. Straightforward, repetitive guitar riffs, Pixies-inspired bass lines and aggressive drum beats see-saw perfectly against the lighter, lovable notes, all of which are wrapped up in a surfy analog haze – Liz Pelly – CMJ Review

Come hang out in between the sets of awesome going on all day at the Radio Bean 9th Birthday Bash.
