Band: Horace Pickett
Release date: Out now
Not to be confused with Horace Pinker or Wilson Pickett, Seattle's Horace Pickett are a nerd rock band with an affinity for 1980s new wave. Their third album is filled with quirky, angular songs that recall Devo above all else, but which also incorporates a broader range of influences too. "Phantom of Dance" could be a B-side from the Rocky Horror soundtrack, "Body Language" is a jazzy instrumental and they even have a saxophonist. You can check out a stream of the album after the jump.
