It’s always refreshing to step back from the sea of electronica on the Internet and hear some crisp, well-done alt-rock. This is where my interest in music began, and every time I come back it’s like I’m going back to my roots. NightOwl is a four-friend outfit from LA that has graduated from playing garage gigs and are working on their first EP. For such a new group, their sound is extremely professional and clean, not to mention the music is just plain great. Compared to The Black Keys and The Doors by Indie Shuffle, this band makes an old sound feel new, and the track is simply catchy. I’ll be looking for more from NightOwl.
