Peel’s Self-Titled Release

Peel Peel (Peek-A-Boo Records; April 2006)

peel_album.jpgGet to know Peel, a pop-rock quartet hailing from Austin, Texas, dropping their debut album this April with Peek-A-Boo Records. A youthful blend of indie pop with noisy drums, keyboards, and multiple vocalists, Peel came together in 2004 and since then has been a huge favorite in the Austin scene and is sure to gain widespread popularity once their self-titled album hits stores. With eleven songs bursting with the ADD energy you’d expect from such a young band, Peel constructs songs with surprisingly mature and intelligent lyrics and displays developed musicianship. With its percussion driven tracks, random psychedelic moments and synthesized crescendos that kept me guessing, I actually wanted to listen to every second of every song to see what else they might come up with.
