Band To Check Out: The Sexual Outlaws

Article by KevW


We don't have a lot to go on when telling you about Portland band The Sexual Outlaws, but it seems they've been around for two or three years and they've just emailed us a new EP of demos entitled 'Pavement Butterfly' which you can pick up from the link at the bottom. The news is that they'll be hitting the studio next month to touch them up and finish them off. Although it's hardly like they need much extra work done to them. These five songs already sound like a finished article, and at pretty darn accomplished one at that.

Taking their cue from decades of great guitar pop, we get a brief dose of baggy on the excellent 'Night Of The Living Bachelors' which also comes with a delightful jangle borrowed from late 80s indie. 'I Made A Promise' is vibrant powerpop that seems so fully-formed you wonder exactly what more they can do to it with some extra equipment. I guess we'll find out before too long, so we'd suggest getting your mitts on this batch of demos while they're still available and then getting a little bit excited about the fact that very soon they could be making them sound even better.
