In their interview of a couple of weeks ago The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart tipped Brooklyn threepiece Knight School as one of the new bands to watch. Were they right?
This month Knight School have their debut album The poor and needy need to party out on Lostmusic Records.
This is distorted indiepop of the deliberately lo-fi variant that seems to be making a glorious comeback lately, supported by much praised releases by for example Crystal Stilts and caUSE co-MOTION. And yes, The POBPAH were right indeed. Knight School's music fits right in with the quality and sound of the aforementioned bands, adding their own brand of hooks and pop charm, almost casually skinnydipping in a pool of golden melodies. 14 passionate blasts of pop in 24 minutes; no second thoughts, no looking back. And why would you, if you know it's right?
Looking on the band's myspace for information you'll only find this:

It's enough because it's true.
