A FIR-JU WELL, THE EAMES ERA
KINGS--Atlanta's A Fir-Ju Well drifts inside one of the best pop kaleidoscopes to ever creep out of Georgia and not call Athens home. Then again, you may be surprised that they don't call Athens home: Their Pink Floyd-Pretty Things mash-ups--ebullient pop dreamscapes with wet-tongue electric licks--recall more direct Olivia Tremor Control and less lush Elf Power. I love this band. New Orleans' The Eames Era is five-piece, guitar-based indie pop that sounds like blowing Bubblicious on a sunny day.
