Big fan of the VALE EP from Boston quintet Camden.  First time hearing their sound, I was sure it was the product of a kid prodigy, synthesizing youthful beats and bouncy hooks in his basement with loads of electronic toys, time, and a good ear for production.

Seeing Camden live, I was pleased to find out that they're actually a solid 5 piece outfit,not one synthesizer, even more entertaining in person than what I imagined on the record.  Happy ending -- everyone danced.  Listen to the record.  Get the songs in your head.  See them live.

Catch Camden at the BirdDog CMJ Showcase @ Pianos (upstairs lounge) -- playing right after a little band named Baths!  Get there early.

Heard they don't really play shows that much, just house parties.   That should put things in perspective.

[suggested track] Too Young To Come
