From the Haddons, the Hills and the Heights of suburban New Jersey comes It’s A King Thing – A band for boys and girls, late bloomers, nose pickers, pussies and procrastinators.
For the better part of 2009, It’s A King Thing has been recording it’s 2nd full-length, Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo, a record which expertly verse-chorus-verses its way into a 12 song / 36 minute concoction of “I can’t believe my mom just caught me masturbating” and winsome anti-folk vignettes.
Led by singer / songwriter / smartass Brian Mietz and featuring former members of the criminally underrated Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A Start, It’s A King Thing should find fans of the first two Weezer albums, The Lemonheads, Nada Surf and Guided By Voices drooling uncontrollably. You can stream the entire album here, and like all of the band’s previous material, Buffalo … is available for FREE DOWNLOAD!
Check out two singles “Old Hobbies” and “Mush Mouth” (free mp3s) for your ear pleasure.
The band also has the ambitious plan to shoot a video for each song on Buffalo…. The results are sure to be humourous. In fact, three are already complete and you can check those out here. Schweet!
