New Lo-Fi Discovery: Pear Traps - EP and single
Sorry it's taken me a while to get this posted, because I really like this band a lot. Lo-fi like old R.E.M., nicely buzzing and strumming along like the Feelies, the Bats or the Clean, it's catchy and the guitars are absolutely delightful.

Here's hoping they'll record an album or two in 2012, but until then this EP will do very nicely:
It's been out since the summer, but I just discovered it. "Discovered", that's funny. The Pear Traps sent it to me and Scott. Must have known what big fans of Human Television we are...
They're also offering a free download of their 2010 EP Basement Fidelity.
