The Lemurs: Million Little Bits

The long awaited follow-up to the Lemurs' self-titled debut EP lands this week. It's called Million Little Bits, and if you head down to their show at Mohawk on Saturday night (with Belaire, Pink Nasty and Low Line Caller) you'll receive a copy of the EP with your ticket purchase. The production and songwriting on Million Little Bits shows the maturity of this young band, who have been making a name for themself around the Austin music scene for the past couple of years.

If I had to pinpoint their new EP on the music map, I'd say it feels like The Cure met up with Bloc Party and were produced by Gary Numan. It has a nice sound and feel to it with great use of effects and dynamics. The addition of backing vocals to the disc is a great touch, as is the fuzz bass on tracks like "Waiting Outside."

Not only are the Lemurs of the nicest bands you will meet, they really pack a punch in the live setting. Singer Mitch Billeaud breaks a sweat with the first lyrics out of his mouth, guitarist Davy Click wails and bends notes furiously, while drummer Danny Reisch pounds the drums with utmost precision. Expect a packed show Saturday night as these dudes know how to entertain. If you're not in Austin and want to get your hands on some Lemurs EP's, just check out the store on their myspace page.

You did the best job you could trying to make them sound like they were worth a listen. No really, you did. I mean, they are the "tightest" band in town.
