The Quiet Americans - Be Alone

This family band from Fresno, California write incredibly catchy psych-influenced garage rock. Band leader Luke Giffen is something of a Vince Noir - he works by day at the local zoo to support his family - and lays down sweet jams on his 8-track by night with his brother-in-law Eli Reyes and little brother Ross Giffen.  Not sure if he can speak to animals, but my bet is he speaks to the pop gods on the reg.

Pick up their Medicine EP on Bndcmp free, and get the ltd. cassette for $5 bones more. On Tumblr here.
