Cold War Kids: "Hair Down"

The band with the lucky task of opening for Tapes ‘n Tapes on their current tour is Cold War Kids, a sort of Modest Mouse soundalike from LA. They got a great reaction from Ryan over at Muzzle of Bees, and I think I would’ve felt the way if they’d only played a handful of songs. Their first three or four were really energetic, wild and great — punctuated most notably by their guitar player also using a maraca to bash a cymbal that had been set on top of a wooden crate — but the stuff after that started to sound a little samey. It might be that I’m just getting of that early Modest Mouse/Wolf Parade sound, but I came away just thinking they were good after a great start.
