The Stepkids

So these guys came through town a little while back with The Horrors, and totally blew my mind. Their self-titled debut just dropped a few weeks ago on Stones Throw and has quickly become one of my favorite records of the year.

All three members are accomplished song writers and the music they make is a kind of psychedelic soul that’s totally vintage, but not at all in that faux wannabe referential way. They make the ’70s seem like the best possible time to have been alive and listening to music, plus their songs have awesome titles like Brain Ninja and Wonderfox.

Here’s a free track for download over at Bandcamp

Check out these equally great videos they’ve done and don’t miss your chance to catch these guys in action.

Also, you can stream the entire record on the bands website:
