Trio turned quartet, Shokei from Bad Bocklet play artsy post-hc with plenty of percussion stuff thrown in there for good measure. Imagine the diversity of Yeasayer paired with the intensity of old tyme bands like Rites of Spring and a straight four-to-the-floor beat that would have made Klaus Dinger proud and you are at least half-way there.

The Falcon Five hail from Würzburg and kind of sound like The Wipers with Greg Sage on Prozac. Featuring one of the fiercest Telecaster slingers around, they deliver a pure riff-o-rama to be enjoyed also by fans of Les Savy Fav and the like.
