Guards will be your new favourite band.

SHIT listen to this!! Like Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros collaborating with MGMT to do Arcade Fire covers!! So good!! The band are Guards and this is their Bandcamp page here. There doesn't seem to be a Facebook or anything else for them but their Twitter is here.
They've done some good covers (like of MIA's Born Free) which have been getting them noticed a bit but hell they deserve total full blown coverage. Their Bandcamp has a free download of their EP also called Guards. Get it or regret it! These guys are like MGMT when you first heard Kids or Time To Pretend but without the perfect photoshoot on a beach at dusk to get them going global
The song below is new it seems! Love these dudes!! Guards - Swimming After Dark by 1FTP

  1. Good call Mr Wolfe! This band are on constant rotation in my house. Is that song you posted Swimming After Dark? I can't see it at werk. It was released in October on Yours Truly - ahem - http://nfrblog.blogspot.com/2010/10/download-guards-guards-ep.html

    They haven't had anything new since October, and now that coves ep. Love the Metallica one. Well, love them all!
