New Jangle Discovery: Desario - Mixer
Desario is a Sacramento-based jangle rock band with excellent guitars, and hooks aplenty, throughout Mixer, their second record. I really enjoy the quick pace of "Develop Destroy", the big guitar hooks of opener "Cement Sneakers" and the jangle of "Call Out Your Rivals" and "Occasional Monsters" - that one's got a really nice hook in the intro. The band consists of John Conley (vocals / guitar), Jim Rivas (drums / percussion), Mike Yoas (guitar / synths), and Mike Carr (bass).
Here's the video for "Victoria Island":
