Yesterday I was hipped to the indie pop band Carousel from Boston (who I understand are on their way to a move to Brooklyn). The three piece – Kevin Friedman, Tyler Cratcha amd Jackson Phillips – have an EP called 26 Allston available for free download from their site here and a few additional singles here. After a few listens it’s easy to understand why so many people have fallen in love with them. We’re talking instant hooks, lush keyboards, swells of body moving electronica energy. I often dislike making comparisons but I will anyway; if you dig Passion Pit, Freelance Whales and of course Postal Service, you’re gonna dig these guys.
