September 9, 2009 Turtle Ambulance
I’ve recently been digging the music scene in JP. My most recent discovery is the band Turtle Ambulance. Their first album, Plates, is now available for download on their myspace. Although after a while the tunes all seem to kind of blend together (especially because of their segues between songs), the songs are solid.
To me, they sound like Animal Collective on a little less acid, or Fleet Foxes on more acid. The FF comparison doesn’t really stand because after one listen, they become instantly boring. However, this album offers more upon each listen.
Here’s my favorite song off of Plates. It’s called “Swirlyslide”. Enjoy!
Here’s the link for the download.
Download the whole album at http://www.myspace.com/turtleambulance. Some other great tracks: “Windows Down”, “Hardware Store”, and “Tamaulipas Plates”.
