XL KINGS • THE PIGGIES
THE SLOPPY HEADS
XL Kings is composed of remnants of Hypnolovewheel, the Martinets, Special Pillow, and other fine ensembles that you'd be less impressed by. They set out to recreate rock'n'roll in their own image, break it, and then roll around in the shards. Punk in spirit, riffing through roots-dirty, Stones-esque hooks, The Piggies (led by Andy Maltz of The Little Killers) exemplify the good-time, vinyl-hugging rock'n'roll and straight-to-tape aesthetic most bands can only hope for... Smart, funny and heady, The Sloppy Heads play primal noise-pop.
