Now Playing: Guards
  • TUESDAY, JUNE 05, 2012

Vaguely fuzzed-out rock and roll has several vehicles in the current landscape, but not enough to embody the pure, carnal fun of a riotous riff and a quotable chorus. GUARDS has the fortune of being fronted and run by Richie Follin, part of a family that seems to be becoming indie rock royalty -- sister Madeline is the ladyvoice of Cults -- and shows no signs of waning in producing 60s influenced, head-nod-able bliss. While sister-band Cults prefers the sound of a lazy, optimistic summer, GUARDS occupy a bit of a darker season -- longing, loss, and a six-piece orchestra color the summer a thicker hue of red (but no less hazy).

Captured at Cutting Room Studios, GUARDS play songs from their eponymous EP for John Richards' Morning Show on 90.3 KEXP Seattle in our latest session. Watch them recreate their impeccable sound on live radiojust another reason Richie Follin and company will keep you on your toes.
