This Arkansas-Ohio duoIke Peters of Little Rock and Eric Mount of Lebanon — make a warm, reverb-heavy sound that will tickle the ears of anybody who dug Dr. Dog's "Easybeat," from a few years back. "I Only Want You" from the band's self-titled album. The tune is spacious sounding, with a laid-back, ever-so-slightly wistful vibe, all jangly guitar strum and a simple beat, punctuated with a trumpet peeking out like a ray of sunshine through a cloud. The album was produced and mixed and mastered by, respectively, Isaac Alexander and Jason Weinheimer, whose track records are purt-dang near unimpeachable. Peters and Mount are wasting no time, though, and are already at work on a follow-up.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
