The Aislers Set
Featuring the singing and songwriting talents of both Amy Linton (ex-Henry's Dress) and Wyatt Cussick (Track Star), the Aislers Set create blissful Indie pop that can only be described as amazingly infectious. A knockout rhythm section completes the rock 'n' roll equation; Poundsign's Alicia VandenHueval contributes vocally and on bass, Scenic Vermont/Poastal drummer Yoshi Nakamoto pounds in tasteful exuberance, and Fairways' Jen Cohen works the keys. Simple, chiming progressions become kinetic exercises in warm, friendly melodic interplay, and melancholic, vintage flavored nostalgia. Recalling Reckoning-era R.E.M. at times (see: "California") and London's Television Personalities' Organ-Pop in others, the Aislers Set's pleasing rapport of old and new sounds is near perfect Indie Pop.
