No Binoculars Needed For Noah And The Whale Watching
Noah and the Whale are the kind of cute British boys who wear suspenders, strum ukuleles, and name themselves after their favorite indie movie. (Which would be “The Squid and the Whale,” directed by Noah Bumbach.) Oh, and did we mention the whistling? Their new album, Last Night on Earth, sounds much more produced in a studio rather than recorded in a beach house basement by guys playing with slinkys in between takes. Overall, it has a bit of a Tom Petty vibe, which is strange considering the whole British thing. Still, they give the sound a whimsical spin, naturally.
