Picture this - a hot new band that strongly rivals Wolf Parade and We Are Scientists. The Picture may have only been around for a year and a half, but what they’ve accomplished in that short amount of time has put them on the map. The moment I listened to their debut album, Connect (released yesterday, 12.06.05), I immediately connected with the sense of urgency in their sound. With the help of uber-producer Carmen Rizzo (Grant Lee Phlllips, Billy Corgan) and top music engineer Andrew Scheps (Jay-Z, Johnny Cash), The Picture have crafted a solid debut. My favorite track, “Faceless”, has become a part of my morning commute playlist. It reminds me of the Brit indie pop sounds I’ve grown to love. In fact, even though the band was formed in New York, there’s no denying a Brit pop influence, thanks in part to the band’s guitarist, Chris Buckle, who hails from Liverpool. With instant hits like “Blind Side” and “Sellout" this band is one to watch in 2006.
