Tournament of Rock 3: The Postelles vs. The Lost Patrol

In our first match of round 1, Baron Bane eases past Able Archer and advances to the second round. Many thanks to Matt Huseman and AA (a and we really love a lot, by the way) and best of luck with the new CD, which is one of our favorites of 2011.

Our second match features a battle between a couple of NY bands – one we’ve known and loved for several years vs. one we just recently discovered and loved right away.

The Lost Patrol: epic retrofuturism – neo-Americana twang/surf guitars that fill the landscape – heartbreaking melodies from the divine Mollie Israel. LISTEN

The Postelles: Energetic garage pop – fun and upbeat – UK New Wave inflected tunesmithing. LISTEN

Now, time to vote.
