(another band to be included in the category of absurd yet comically named groups to appear at CMJ this year) throw down some effortless pop songs that you need to check out. Started by Detroit natives Joshua Epstein and Daniel Zott, the band manages to maintain simple, melodious songs that backed up by hip-hop inspired drum machines that are guaranteed to make any audience dance. Catch them tonight at Mercury Lounge if you're CMJ-ing, or in the future when they take over the world.
In the meantime check out their Myspace for tunes and more info.-brendan mehan
