The Minor Leagues


...while we rarely discuss bands from outside of Dayton at length, we'd like to think we have a slightly wider worldview than that. At least sometimes. Which brings us to The Minor Leagues from Cincinnati. As part of the long-running Datawaslost label and the Vibrating Needle Collective, these harbingers of lo-fi delight have long been one of our regional favorites. With their obvious affinity for Phil Spector and British Invasion filtered through various punk and indie flavors (think Apples In Stereo doing Kinks covers), TML are long on melodic treats. With the recent release of The Pestilence Is Coming the band have transcended their modest lo-fi roots and produced a captivating work that would easily appeal to adherents of Elephant 6 ethos. Check them out now and plan on seeing them this Saturday at The Nite Owl. You know we'll be there....
