Jagjaguwar’s new signing is the Olympia, WA-meets-NYC duo of Sam France and Jonathan Rado, who make freewheeling, ’60s psych-inspired rock. Ariel Pink comparisons aren’t totally off-base, but I’d say present day MGMT is a closer comparison. The song in question today, “Make It Known,” ratchets through some cool ideas without ever settling on one, where France’s voice approaches Andrew VanWyngarden territory but also makes room for some Casablancas-style murmuring. It’s interesting. Download it below.
