Disciples Of California
Released: Oct 2006
After just a couple spins, Disciples of California will have you rummaging around the attic, looking for your musty copies of American Beauty and New Riders of the Purple Sage. But here's the thing: the Leopards don't actually sound like a vintage hippie folk-rock band. They very ingeniously pay tribute to the mythology of a bygone era with a style that has more in common with Television Personalities, the Go-Betweens and other jangle-pop auteurs born and raised in the 1980s. So cool.
