One of my favorite things to to discover a great new band when I’m at a venue to see someone else. That’s how I found The Postelles last year. About all I knew at that point was that they were discovered and produced by Albert Hammond, Jr. of The Strokes. I figured I’d stay for a song or two, and wound up wishing their entire set was longer. They have a definite melodic consistency. The Strokes themselves will probably never return to their early freshness, but what we get from these New Yorkers is much of that same vibe, only somewhat more pop.
