Houston Band (Finally) Makes Rolling Stone
"It's the kind of music cowboys might hear in the distance as they stagger dumbly to their doom. And because they use a bevy of instruments, piling on piano and trumpet and violin, Listenlisten manage to be a four-person group that sounds like a 12-person group. "Listen If: You've given up hope on that Neutral Milk Hotel reunion, or are looking for an even spookier version of Will Oldham."Read the full write-up here. By a strange coincidence, Rocks Off just listened to Rhodesia, which actually is comprised of hymns from the South African nation now known as Zimbabwe (we think), and we have to agree - it's pretty out there. Rolling Stone must really like listenlisten, too, because they refer to the quartet as a "collective" - as in Animal. Congratulations, guys. listenlisten plays the Leave Your Genre At the Door multi-band blowout Friday at Fitzgerald's and the IndieHouston house with Buxton, Giant Princess and Robert Ellis August 15 before heading out on a short two-week tour.
