POP | The Griswolds


Australian indie pop band, The Griswolds, finally released its debut LP. It seems like forever ago that the band's track "Mississippi" was on heavy rotation on college radio stations — really, it was just last summer, so maybe I'm impatient. Just last Monday, The Griswolds released "Be Impressive," 11 tracks of sugary pop rock and danceable synths — the band worked with M83 and Phoenix producer Tony Hoffer, if that gives you any hint. It's a fun, sunny album that builds on the high points of last year's "Heart of a Lion EP." We still have a few days of summer left, right?

The Griswolds play with Nerds in Denial and Scope & Figure on Saturday, August 30, at Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut Street.;
