Just Listen: Giantess
Buzz band alert: Giantess has released a grand total of four (!!!) songs via MySpace, but they're being labelled as ones to watch in 2009. I know it's early - they're realeasing their debut EP, Deceptive Man, in March apparently, though at the moment I can't find any hard evidence of that claim - but it's easy to see where the hype is coming from.
In 2007, Muscles put out one of my favourite records of the year. It was packed full of retro house and booming synths, each song ready for a dance floor. Giantess has a similar vibe, as if Dance Mix 95 was recreated in 2009 for an indie audience.
Who knows where these guys are headed, or if their sound can hold up over an entire album, but right now they're a hell of a lot of fun to listen to.
