Venus gave us a hot tip this month on a new band called Midtown Dickens. They’re from Durham, North Carolina and play ukeleles and banjos and are pretty much the queer female version of Sufjan Stevens. We think that’s the best idea for a band ever.
MD are currently releasing tracks on the Internet and through small label, 307 Knox. They’re small enough that you can claim you knew them when if you get on top of it. They might be hailed as the next big thing at SXSW this year. Probs not, but we know they rule, and we love their Southeastern influence.
