Best New Band 

Old Lights

St. Louis' local music scene was given a considerable boost a few months back when Old Lights started playing shows locally and regionally. The brainchild of David Beeman, Old Lights constructs rootsy and concise acoustic-driven songs dressed up in the guise of bouncy indie-pop in the vein of Okkervil River and early Shins. Warm and inventive home-crafted studio production — along with flourishes of hard-panned percussion, honky-tonk piano and vintage string patches — makes tunes like "If You Come Over Tonight" and "The Rail" stand out. As Old Lights gains more of a national concert and blog presence — and with a record due this fall on hip vinyl label St. Ives, the band certainly will — and it'll be nice to be able to say they hail from our fair city.
