Album: Self-titled EP
Release: out now
As far as band names go? Terrible. Thankfully, the songs on local quartet How to Operate Your Brain's debut EP are better--a tiny bit early 2000s emo throwback, but otherwise clean and tight guitar rock replete with interesting riffage and a lot of obvious heart.Listen to (and download for free!) all three songs on HTOYB's Bandcamp page--I'm partial to the nice and subtle opener, "The Emerald Au Pair."
