One Hundred Flowers

In the realm of baroque indie pop, with swirly contrapuntal vocals and giddy blares of synthesizer alongside more conventional guitars and drums, comes Austin’s One Hundred Flowers. The band started as a bedroom inkling of one Harrison Speck, but now numbers five, namely Speck plus Eva Mueller on keys, Amber Nepodal on the piano and trumpet, Gary Calhoun James on bass, and Curtis Henderson on drums. I’ve missed the sell-by date on their album Mechanical Bride (it came out last November), but what the hell…it’s pretty wonderful.

You think they’ll get sued by the Urinals?
