The Knew

Add Date: April 13

Artist: The Knew

Album: The Knew's Pulperia

Label: SFP

Genre: Rock, garage

Comments: The Onion says it well: "The Knew artfully pulls from a variety of Southern and modern rock influences... Pulperia is ultimately a rich, enjoyable listen. The record owes some of its success to impeccable production, but even more to the evolution of The Knew as a band."

This is only their debut full-length, but in addition to showing a lot of spunk, The Knew shows a lot of musical promise: influenced by White Stripes-style blues rock and other straight-out-of-Detroit rock'n'roll, it's hard to believe these dudes are from Denver. Start with "United" and "Citytown."
