The Orwells - Oh! Well

Yesterday discovered this wonder Garage kids by pure accident and the first thing that came out of my head was "The Sonics", that's how good they are. The Orwells are a bunch of young kids from Elmhurst Illinois and make a brutal and raw sound that would sound like a better and raw version of the Strokes.

Their 2010 second album "Oh! Well" is a brilliant Garage revival where you can easily spot loads of influences from The Stooges to The Velvet Underground and even some high and low's nineties characteristic riffs from the alternative juice bands like the Pixies and Nirvana. Most definitely a band to watch really carefully in the coming years.

As a twisted note, i asked my flat mate Scotty what year he thought this album was recorded, he answer 1977 !!!!!
