The Tall Ships (San Diego, CA) - On Tariffs and Discovery
New to me, though it's been out since February. This is a San Diego band, a trio: Steve Kuhn on guitars and vocals, Kyle Conwell on bass, guitars and vocals and Keith Andrew on drums and percussion. I like their sound, reminds me a little bit of Pinback, Modest Mouse, and maybe Eleventh Dream Day... you can check out a song for yourself at their label site (link below). Good stuff, well worth your time.
Here's a video of them performing (rehearsing) "Freight Train Riders of America" which is on the album:
