Formed in March of this year, the Los Angeles-based Détective is already bursting with talent. Co-fronted by James Greer (former Guided by Voices bassist, rock journalist for SPIN and accomplished screenwriter) and Guylaine Vivarat (ex-Tennis System), Détective often sounds like unpretentious Frenchy shoegaze mixed with Velvet Underground-ish lo-fi goodness. Vivarat's dreamy delivery combines with Greer's sweetly sardonic vocals to balance the beauty of the music with the honesty of the lyrics as drummer Rory Modica (Useless Keys) propels even the most otherwordly songs into pop explosions. The band's debut album, However Strange, is out now on Burger Records. Regrets, I've Had a Few: Yes, Guided by Voices is the headliner on this bill, but don't sleep on this opening band. It might be the headliner soon enough.
