Walker Kong

I recently realized that, having gotten some sample tracks from their new album, I've been listening to Walker Kong obsessively.
Deliver Us From People was released on March 27th with a surprisingly low amount of blog coverage (see what I mean). Without giving off an air of pretentiousness, Walker Kong pulls off a quirky mix of folk verging on twee pop and cheerful indie rock. "Andy Warhol and the Honey Bees" begins with a marching band's drum beat, on which a quiet acoustic guitar and an understated tenor (somehow reminding me of Skeleton Jar Youth Group) come to float on top of, carrying the song into the realms of perfect pop-dom.
