Thanks to We Shot J.R. for staying up on the thriving Denton scene, and for introducing us to Fergus & Geronimo, the rad new group from Jason Kelly (Wax Museums) and Andrew Savage (Teenage Cool Kids, who’ve gained some national attention recently thanks to an absurd cease & desist from the other Cool Kids). Savage’s original idea for the project was “Four Tops by way of Mothers of Invention,” and based on the three great Motown-inspired lo-fi tracks I’ve heard from the group thus far, they kind of nailed that. “Tell It in My Ear” may or may not be the best of the bunch, but it has been on repeat all morning. Play it loud:

mp3:
fergus & geronimo :: tell it in my ear

Fergus & Geronimo have releases planned on the consistently awesome Woodsist and Troubleman Unlimited labels in the near future, so I’m guessing you’ll be hearing from them again soon.
