Crepes - Channel Four

Crepes are no longer just a treat for brunch.  They also are, in fact, a delightful indie pop band based in Melbourne.  Their debut LP, Channel Four, bubbles with irresistible melodies and clever hooks, reminding us of the stylish indie pop of Voxtrot and Spoon, as well as a number of '70s soft rock favorites.  The five-piece is equally adept at upbeat bangers and laid-back mid-tempo tunes.  But the lasting impression is that this is the rare band with a highly polished gloss to go with their considerable substance.  We have too many favorite songs here to mention, so hit the links and choose your own.

Crepes are Tim Karmouche, Nick Robbins, Pat Robbins, Jackson Dahlenburg, and Sam Cooper.   Channel Four is out now via Australia's Spunk Records and Deaf Ambitions.
