The Strange Boys:: Rough Trade, Be Brave, and Julian Casablancas

465Some bands have something going on that the average passerby groups fail to offer. Rather than just providing pleasure for those few moments before the hegemons of the indie cosmos come up with the next new “must hear group,” Austin’s The Strange Boys make their own sound and it far exceeds the worth of those two page album reviews of the mostly forgettable crap which corrupts our time. Moreover,The Strange Boys have signed to Rough Trade Records for the world excluding the US (In The Red). Their new album, Be Brave, is slated for release in 2010. Stream the title track, “Be Brave,” on the band’s myspace.
