Artist of the Week: Red Pens (& mp3!)

This week we've been enjoying the second album from Minneapolis duo Red Pens, Reasons. Their simple, lo-fi brand of pop music is immediately charming, with just enough grit and attitude to keep the listener entertained from the album opener to the final track.With Howard Hamilton III of the Busy Signals on guitar and vocals, and Laura Bennett on drums (which she paints herself), Red Pens are just starting to leave their mark on the fuzzy indie art-rock scene.
Recommended if you like Joy Division, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Sonic Youth.
Download "Hung Out" from Reasons HERE (via Insomnia Radio)
