Fergus and Geronimo

Make no mistake—Fergus and Geronimo do and say as they please. The Texas-bred, Brooklyn-based duo's debut long-player, Unlearn, fearlessly bulldozes through garage rock, doo-wop, and more, gathering up whatever rubble proves useful along the way—like, you know, a tender flute line that follows the melody of "Wanna Know What I Would Do?," a punk-injected blip that bluntly suggests scenesters fuck off. This sort of youthful panache is interestingly matched with Andrew Savage's plainspoken delivery on his portion of the record (sharing songwriting and vocal duties with other bandmate—presumably Geronimo—Jason Kelly). If I were you, I would go to this show and pray for "Forced Aloha"; it's a good day when some singer peers out over a strumming, Built to Spill moment and groans, "Your life is nothing/But a loveless beach house fuck/Sö good luck."
