The Weird Weeds

Our friends The Weird Weeds have been wowing the blogosphere for some time now, and for good reason--payola! Oh, and it doesn't hurt that they're REALLY GOOD, too. They're winning the hearts of those who fell for the 'freak-folk' trend, though that tag's kind of insuting, of course, because they're not really folk. They've released an album, Hold Me, and an EP, This Is Not What You Want, and they're currently working on their second album, which is due for release later this year. That that other website made them a 'buzz' band isn't surprising; in fact, it's about damn time.
