John & Garry :: "Hide Away"
Forthrightness is the new obfuscation, at least according to brother, bedroom pop outfit John & Garry. Comprised of brothers John and Garry, the duo makes winsome 1990s guitar pop on debut demo "Hide Away." For fans of the Lemonheads and the most upbeat moments of the Red House Painters, with maybe a twist of Frightened Rabbit for purposes of updating, the brothers craft a tidy little rock song with its footnotes solidly in the tradition of great college radio. It is relentlessly simple. Perhaps this is too straight a line in age of misdirection, but the brothers in the bedroom are fully free from these questions.
