Sometimes it takes me a while to get the message, but I like to think that after a while I smart enough to figure it out, with a little help of course. It’s 2009, but Sourpatch sound so much like 1992 SpinArt/Slumberland that it’s kind of freaky. Think I’m kidding? Take a listen and tell me you don’t hear parts Lorelei, Velocity Girl, the Swirlies and a little bit of Small Factory and Tiger Trap for good measure from this San Jose, California band. To date they have a self-released demo, a free EP courtesy of WIAIWYA’s virtual singles series and an awesomely fun video which you can see below. This flying below the radar thing is all about to change because Athens, Georgia’s Happy Happy Birthday To Me will be releasing the band’s first album early next year. If you take a look at you calendar, that’s not too far off.
