Land of a Thousand Dolphins
Land Mammal harkens back to those golden sounds of fuzzy ‘90s indie rock which still sound sweet a decade later. A relative newcomer to the Providence rock ‘n’ roll gang wars, Land Mammal take their cue from the likes of Pavement, some of the more minimalist Sonic Youth stuff, Beat Happening, and probably 62% of the 1994 roster of Matador Records. Having been as big a fan of indie guitar swing as the next geek back in the day, I don’t view that as a bad thing.

Land Mammal is carving their own niche with lo-fi breezy originals so check myspace.com/aspecialnewband to keep abreast on where they will be stomping in the future.

The official animal of Alt-Nation this holiday season, don’t miss Land Mammal’s Thanksgiving Eve hoedown at AS220 where I’m sure not a single holiday song will be performed. Land Mammal will bring the ‘90s back to AS220 on Thanksgiving Eve, Nov. 26.
