What is it about Middletown, Connecticut lately? Robby Caplan, Evan Low, and Henry Hall formed Grand Cousin while attending Wesleyan University, which is where Das Racist and Santigold got their start. Once again, Bill Belichick can be proud of his alma mater.
You’ll be hearing more of this band soon, and it’s not because Henry Hall’s mom bared herself on the cover of the Rolling Stone. Although, that didn’t hurt–mom Julia Louis-Dreyfus is riding a wave with the show, Veep. No, this band has serious pop chops and will soon infect the whole planet. Their self-titled LP drops on July 8. So if you haven’t heard them before now, indulge:
“Camera” [free d/l]
“Take You Out” [free d/l]
(The Robert Carranza Brushfire Mix)
“Comfortable and Relaxed” [free d/l]
