Featuring Wes alum Dan Ferm ’12, this Northampton band is certifiably
blowin’ up. Poopfork recently big up’d not one, but two tracks off
their new 7″ and they also got nifty articles written about them in
Spin and on MTV.com. Next stop TRL, amirite? I’m not gonna say they
sound like Dinosaur Jr or the Breeders because, contrary to popular
belief, they’re not like totally in love with 90s. If having one bro
from Wesleyan on bass counts, then they are our school’s Next Big
Thing. Wisen up! Wesleying coverage here.
