A Quick Look: Squirrelhouse

Tuscaloosa, Alabama may be best known for being the home of the University of Alabama (and a rather un-PC Groucho Marx joke), but it's also the base for indie rock band Squirrelhouse.

A very diverse group of five young members (dual guitars, bass, drums, vocals and French horn), each coming from a different musical and artistic background, the sound they produce also changes. While the poppy hooks on "Fours" are quite discernible, other tracks, such as "Monster pt. 1" and "Monster pt. 2" from the next album (still being worked on) show a leaning toward more progressive and post-rock styles. Other way, it'll be interesting to see how this band continues to develop its unique sound.

Check out Squirrelhouse on MySpace for gigs and other updates. Get their debut LP S.P.Q.R. on CD Baby.
