Get to Know: Being There
There are a few ways to increase the chance of getting noticed by the omnivorous (some would say "desperate, ravenous and undiscriminating", but they are just referring to our eating habits) WYMA blog scouts. But a high percentage tactic is to create very good jangly, indie guitar rock that sounds like a blend of Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Yuck, and recent Times New Viking, and to list Guided By Voices as an influence. So you won't be surprised that we glommed like moths to the porch light of jangle at the first strains of London's Being There. Other than being four musicians based in London, I don't know much about these guys, and their Website and Facebook page are stingy with details. So, we'll go straight to the music. Here is a three track self titled album of very nice songs, and one of them, "Tomorrow", is available for free download.
These guys are worth putting on the "watch for" list.
