The High Dials
The High Dials deliver a high energy dose of 50's and 60's guitar rock mixed effectively with ambient tones and drum loops fitting of a modern dance tune. While I won't go so far as to compare the band to The Beatles directly, I can certainly hear the influence while at the same time recognizing the modern evolution of the sound. I first heard this band on Rocket Slide Radio and have been playing all the tracks they have available online in frequent rotation on my portable player. I have no idea whether this band named themselves for the style of culinary scale designed to weigh food products with a strain gauge and display the weight on a large clock style interface above the scale platform, but they certainly deliver a precision sound that brings swirling visions of the Cleaver family kitchen, complete with June in heels and an apron preparing the evening meal.
