Be Your Own Pet

Image hosting by Photobucket

Be Your Own Pet have been making quite a racket both in their home state of Tennessee and the UK for well over a year, and the group is just barely out of high school. Lead singer Jemina Pearl has the voice and stage presence of a below the Mason-Dixon line Karen O., while the rest of the band exudes the wiry energy of that gangly kid who you're friends with just so he can hack into the school's computer system to change your grades. This band was INSANE when I saw them at Siren Fest this past July and reports from the field say that they have only gotten better. XL Recordings is dropping their self-titled debut album on March 13th in the UK, but I am not sure what the US date is. The Extra Extra EP is currently available through Infinity Cat.

And not that I am the biggest fan of the South, but just like me, BYOP are fans of the great Waffle House! Perhaps Jemina and I can share an early morning breakfast. Check the tour dates...
