THESE GUYS THESE GUYS
These Guys These Guys was formed in the summer of '07, those bygone days when men were men and women were also men. Drummer Pete Kosmal and guitarist Jake Szafranski were looking for a "good time," as well as someone to play some music with. They found both in Branden Johnson, a mutual friend. Johnson could play the piano a little bit, so they thought, "Why not?" and got their music on. The arrival of bassist Emily Ward brought lower notes and a touch of irony to the name These Guys These Guys.
Phone Home's music is very melodic and sometimes sorta spacey (especially when things get all vibraphone-y) and often a little math rock-y when it kicks it up a notch, and it's always pretty perfectly pleasant to listen to.
Phone Home is what you should put on when you want your mood to even out a little. In other words, this isn't music to RAGE to. This is music to gaze at the stars to (or, you know, music to listen to while working on your novel or something).
