Due out in the fall on Astralwerks/Capitol, it seems impossible to find out much about The Postelles and their self titled debut, and that is wonderful. We need more mystery - too much access dilutes the rock star-ness of our rock stars. But from their The Kids Are Alright pose to their Knack-y skinny ties, you know you're in for short spasms of teenage symphonies to mod.
I stumbled upon these guys in their primo SXSW slot opening for the Big Star tribute, and they brought merseybeat via New York City to Austin. There's the staccato guitar, the ecstatic call and response vocals and an extra helping of fab, all wrapped up in 2:40, which I think we can all agree is the exact perfect length for a pop song.
