Boston based, The Slip are getting tons of well warranted buzz on the web in the past month or two. In part due to the fact that they are supporting My Morning Jacket for a string of dates but also because their debut full length, Eisenhower is quite an up and coming disc.
The tune “Even Rats” was featured on PS2 game Guitar Hero. And its sugary sweet like any good indie pop songs should be. While the other track getting some play, “Children of December”, is equally catchy and should be a favorite in indie circles thanks to all the December, Christmas and New Years references. And its about time these guys got their due nationally, Ive heard they are quite the local draw in the Boston area already. You can find out more about the boys on their MySpace page, or just pick up a copy of Eisenhower
The Slip will be in the WOXY Lounge on Dec 5th at 10am EST.
